I'm an adult student so I cannot comment on dorm conditions or anything like that. My experience with professors has been great! That's the key to success at Guilford and lots of other schools. Talk to advisors and other students to get a feel for various professors in whatever your major is, then take classes with the ones you feel you'll mesh well with. I would definitely choose this school again if I had it to do all over again. Class sizes are really small and we call professors by first names. Quakers are very unassuming people and don't go in much for flashiness or titles. I've learned so much in my time here and I can clearly see the difference in myself image and my entire thinking process since starting my college career here. They stress critical thinking and boy, do I think critically all the time now. This is a writing intensive school so if you don't like to write, or don't want to learn to write, you probably should go somewhere else!

The campus is beautiful, with dozens of huge trees, landscaping that's very attractive and gives a lot of seasonal color and interest. The one thing I really hate about it is the GEESE! They have taken up intermittent residency on campus, and leave their prolific production of feces EVERYWHERE! There are facilities to accommodate the interests and activities of every type of student, most are quite beautiful and all are well-maintained. Whatever you like or want to do, you can find it on GC's campus.

School is quite strict about matters that involve student safety. Depending on the magnitude of a students offense, offenders usually get academic probation for first timer. Suspension if done a second time while they contemplate expulsion. Issues that would normally get students in trouble are, plagiarism, cheating and under age drinking. School does have an anonymous line one can call in case of sexual assault - cool!
