Since I transfer to Guilford in the fall I have really enjoyed being here. The professors are dedicated to helping a student find resources to help pass their courses. I recommend any upcoming freshman or high school senior looking at colleges look at Guilford.
Guilford is a school with a rich history and you can tell from the moment you step on campus. Students and faculty are very devoted to the values of the college, and the culture is pretty nice and accepting. Classes are insightful and very fun overall. The only negative is that the administration and their goals does not always align with the values and needs of the staff, faculty, and students, but that is part of being a private school.
Guilford College is perfect if you're looking for small and easy access to your professors. Guilford isn't really known for parties. Most parties happen off campus and the food here isn't good either, but Guilford College is in a great location of Greensboro and is surrounded by a lot of things.
I’ve been to Guilford College once and needless to say that the Quaker Community is quite lively for those with an ambiverted personality. The administration is friendly and open to new ideas along with doing what they can to help their students. Despite their pricey tuition , they offer opportunities for families and upcoming students with extensive amounts of financial aid that’s provided by the school itself.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Guilford College is 60%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I entered my freshman year a socially awkeward 20 year old. Due to a chronic health condition, I didn't get the chance to enter college right out of high school. I wanted to connect with all of those bubbly freshmen girls, but the task seemed beyond me.
After a few attempts I stopped trying. I reasoned that I would have my entire life to make friends, but now was the time to focus on my studies. I kept to myself, missed out on events and clubs because I told myself that there wasn't any point to it. Isolated, I began to feel depressed and my grades started to fall. I couldn't get motivated. Was this it even worth it?
With the help of an amazing friend I started to emerge from my shell. He helped me see that grades were only a small part of what my college experience could be. My goal changed from having the perfect GPA to doing my best to following my passions and growing as a person. To my highschool self, I would impart just a small piece of bumpersticker wisdom: Always strive to be the best you can be.
The cafeteria food and the avialability of the food is the worst thing at Guilford College. Since I was a freshman the food at Guilford was on a decline but the administration is trying fix the problem by listening to the students while trying to maintian their free trade and organic food policies.
Someone who wants to be challenged academically, politically, spiritually, and socially.
I brag about my 3.85 GPA Because even though my classes are super tough, take a lot of hours at home, studying and preparing for classes, and force me to write a LOT of papers for each class, I've managed to attain a great GPA . They are very supportive of off-campus/adult students, with lots of options for getting help if you're struggling.
It's liberal polital student activism,
Any person who is not willing to listen to other ideas or hear both sides of a story should not attend Guilford College. Anyone who is not willing to lessen their carbon foot print on earth or take part in trying to live a greener life. As well as anyone who is not determined to do the work and come to class willing to start or participate in an open discussion about the reading material from last night.
the campus is amazing. it's so collegiate looking with the brick buildings, and the back of the campus has a fabulous lake and woods, which is the main hangout spot when it's nice out.
My classmates are very smart, but veiws on different issues vary because of diversity.
Guilford College is a school that holds high academic standards but is also excepting of all students no matter who they are or where they have come from.
Before attending Guilford, I wish I would have known more about the school, in general. I didn't know that it was a Quaker school or that it would cost so much to go there. I wish I would have known more about scholarship opportunities from the school and gotten a better look at the campus.
Guilford College was once a college that focused on Quaker values but has become a college envious of mainstream universities over the last few years. It was once a sancuary for the inner-hippie but has created a very fine divide between the liberal hippie and the new athlete but boosting funds in the athletic department. Their is a very definite clash of values.
Guilford really supports uniqueness and individuality. There are so many different types of people that attend Guilford, that it seems like one giant melting pot. Most everyone is friendly and supportive and you truly feel like you're at home whenever you step on campus.
