Athletics: I do not participate in any sports, but I do support athletics. The athletic department seems very put together always making the best accomidations for their athletes

2 College Student

Campus Dining: the food is not very good.

2 College Student

Transportation: There is a reason they allow freshman to have cars.

3 College Student

Guys & Girls: Guilford is not the most attractive bunch of people.

3 College Student

Drug Safety: There are not many hard drugs on campus but almost everyone smokes weed, and if they don't; they drink.

3 College Student

Facilities: The facilities are nicer on the outside than they are on the inside.

4 College Student

Facilities: Guilford is really great at helping people when they need extra support, and wonderful at helping the freshman to get used to college life.

4 College Student

Weather: North Carolina has great weather it is mostly warm, with some changes around december.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Guilford is a wonderful college for a certain type of student, its not for everyone. You either love it or you hate it.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Campus housing is a hit or miss. Freshman dorms are tolerable and upper class men housing is pretty good or completely terrible.

3 College Student

Athletics: Athletics are great for people who want to play a sport they love but were not the best in high school. Athletics can be a big part of your experience or they can be totally ignored.

4 College Student

Scholarships: I have not had an experience with financial aid but they seem to be very helpful and many of the people who go here receive some sort of help.

4 College Student

Diversity: Diversity at the school is good compared to other small liberal colleges but this being said most of the diversity comes from the sports teams (football).

4 College Student

Computers: They have many computers for people to use and the whole campus is wireless.

3 College Student

Local Atmosphere: Greensboro has some very cool things to offer but aside from that it is advertised as a great college town but it is not.

2 College Student

Nightlife: The night life at Guilford is limited to the sports teams hosting the partys and usually they get blown up or shut down by one am. The night life is less about the big partys but more about some drinking or smoking with close friends.

College Student

Greek Life: We don't have greek life- we have "theme" houses. A house you can live in with a bunch of fiends.They host some of the partys but most people party within their own group of friends.

2 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Most of the students live on campus and off campus housing is limited.

Guilford is a wonderful place to be if you are looking for a small liberal arts college experience. Guilford does not attract the types of people who go to standard, huge state schools with flourishing Greek scenes and near-professional football programs. In many different respects, students adore their school, the atmosphere, and their peers. Guilford allows (and expects) you to be independent academically, but you must be willing to work to get the most out of your education here. Although it is a good bit harder to "slip through the cracks" at Guilford, it is certainly possible to fail out. The majority of students feels sufficiently and appropriately challenged academically, although some say it all really depends on your department. Others don't bother to do the work and take the easiest classes possible, and as a result, end up taking extra years to graduate, complaining about it all the while. Those who are happy tend to make the most out of their time on campus. Get involved in the Guilford community, have fun, and try to do most of your work.

Guilford students are good at voicing their opinions. Sometimes this is productive, while other times concerns and suggestions are disregarded by the College altogether. Pay attention to changes that happen, and state your opinion as a student. Guilford's traditional ideals are geared toward community involvement in major decisions that affect all that are connected to the College. Despite any gripes that students have with Guilford, most think that the other aspects outweigh the negatives. Guilford is a place to meet interesting people and make devoted friends for life. Nearly all that have spent time at Guilford depart with a distinct fondness for some part of the experience. Students tend to leave the College fulfilled, mentally and physically exhausted, and full of pride for their alma mater and degree.
