Describe your favorite campus traditions.

Depending on who you ask, I would say that my school is best known for either its strong sense of community among the staff and students together, or its strong program for learning differences. It seems that most schools tend to separate those with learning differences from those without, but at guilford, everyone is an equal part of the community, which adds to the already strong sense of diversity.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would definitely advise parents to not pressure their children about what school to choose. Your child is looking for a place where they are going to spend the next few years of their life, and, if they can pick the right one, those years can include some of the most incredible, life-changing moments they will ever experience. While you may not think you have enough influence over your child, he/she really does take your opinion to heart. Too much external influence, even from a parent, can be confusing and disctracting when making a decision. Trust your child to choose the school that feels right, and get ready to watch them transform.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about my school, out of the very few bad qualities, is the lack of good bands that come to play in Greensboro. Most bands go to asheville or raliegh instead of greensboro, and it's inconvenient to travel that far, especially on a night before classes.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The best advice I can give is to research what you want out of a college whether it is a big campus or a great department field in which you are interested in. Then go to that school and meet with the professors, students and try and sit in a class or two because without visting the school and people you may change your mind. Also vist more then just one school because there may be things you like about one campus that you could find in another. The other piece of advice I can give is to vist your number one choice school more than once because you may notice things you missed the first time that you pick up on the second or third time.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

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.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

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.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

The reason that attracted me to Guilford was the Quaker spirt that sorrounds the whole community in one way or another. Also, Guilford is located on a lush forest and is relitively small- takes about 10 minutes at the most to walk from one side of campus to the other, great for those who wake up late before class starts. Also, the best thing about being a college student here is that you can wear whatever, roll out of bed in your pajamas because people look beyond than how one looks.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

To: Students There are a few things to keep in mind. Firstly, although your parents will help you, it is ultimately YOUR choice to pick the best suited college. If your heart is set on one, then most likely you?ll be happiest there. It is human instinct to gravitate to an environment that one identifies to; however try not to go to the same college as your high school friends. College is a place to make new friends, doing so will add dimension to your personality and will make reuniting with old friends more exciting. Another thing, unless you plan on cooking, or eating Roman noodles for the next four years of college, do yourself a favor and make sure the food there is edible! Lastly, don?t be scared to contact current students of the college questions . They will give you answers, but don?t always take their statements as the truth, just take them into consideration. To: Parents Two things; its okay to let your child go to school in another state, they will want to visit during the holidays. Also, together with your son/daughter compile a list of questions for them to ask the interviewer.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Guilford is a great college for anyone who is looking for openminded, creative, energetic and a friendly community. It is a wonderful place for meeting different people, spending time around nature and a place where most faculty strive to achieve the best out of their students.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Make sure the people are the kind of people you want to spend four years with. Don't base the decision just on how pretty the campus is. Work hard in classes and have fun, but don't let fun get in too much way of schoolwork.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The best advice I can offer from my experience is to look around at colleges first based on the degree you/your child wants to pursue and choose colleges that offer that degree. Some students, like myself, wish to pursue degrees that are very specific and not offered at a lot of colleges. Next is to consider how far from home you/your child wants to go to college. College costs vary widely depending on if you/your child attends an in-state (home state) or out-of-state college. Also consider the type of environment, both academically and socially, you/your student wants to be in. This means looking at average class sizes, difficulty of course work load, the resources available through the school, the social activity outside the class, the type of extracurricular activities available, and the diversity of students, among other things. Costs should be considered, but last, because financial aid is usually very available. Find these items in different colleges and link with ones that best fit you/your child, then go visit (a few of) the campuses you chose. A visit is invaluable in helping with the final decision.

What's unique about your campus?

The student diversity- students at Guilford tend to be from so many different backgrounds and all very accepting of others that are different. Because of that diversity, the religious and social acceptance of students is phenomenal.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who has grown up feeling out of place because of their difference from other students (socially, religiously, financially, whatever), or even those who have been different but accepted (such as having attended a Quaker high school, since Guilford is a Quaker college). Also, that person must be a hard worker in academics, because Guilford is no joke in that regard.

Lindsay
What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Talk to a large variety of students when you visit the campus and take their opinions into stronger account than that of professors, etc.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I would have known that Guilford was a writing intensive school.
