Our Programs, People and Place Make All the Difference
Developing commitment to service and leadership
Our many programs of distinction reach well beyond academic achievement. Helping others and developing leadership skills are also essential parts of the Guilford experience. While here, you'll find so many meaningful ways to give back, including mentoring at-risk children, collecting coats for a homeless shelter and harvesting food for the Greensboro community by volunteering at our award-winning farm. The Bonner Center for Community Service and Learning hosts numerous service projects throughout the year. Other invaluable initiatives include the Quaker Leadership Scholars Program and the Center for Principled Problem Solving, which will provide leadership qualities you can rely on in college and beyond.
Building diverse community
At Guilford, you’ll be part of a rich mosaic of cultures, beliefs and perspectives. You may be in a class with students twice your age or share a meal with students from a half-dozen different faiths. We seek to create a vibrant living and learning environment where each of us is committed to better understanding, appreciating and celebrating the differences we all bring to the table. Embracing the many gifts of diversity is one of our greatest and most important opportunities.
Savoring sunshine and so much more
Guilford offers the best of both worlds: 350-acre park-like campus and big city opportunities. On campus, you can connect with both history and nature. Explore 19th-century architecture, learn about Guilford's link to the Underground Railroad or find tranquility in the Guilford Woods. And enjoy the fruits of labor working on our famous farm. Off campus, you can get real-world experience by interning at some of Greensboro’s largest employers like Citigroup, Procter & Gamble, Lincoln Financial and UnitedHealth Group. Learn more at Opportunity Thrives in Greensboro. Also, when it’s time to get away, we’re just minutes from Piedmont Triad International Airport and the Greensboro Amtrak station.
