We believe there is power in numbers. Small numbers, like 11. Thatâ€™s the average number of students in a Greensboro College class. Like 1,200. Thatâ€™s our entire student body. And especially like one. The one student who we have the opportunity to genuinely know, encourage and prepare. In the classroom. In student life. Into their future careers. And long throughout their lives. Today, we celebrate all those who give power to small numbers. We celebrate that which makes each student his or her own. It is this rich patchwork of individuality, community and experience that is unmistakably and uniquely Greensboro.
Who is a Greensboro College student? One who is original. One who appreciates a challenge. One who asks questions, then searches for answers. One who knows they will do great things one day. One who, at the end of their Greensboro College experience, will be equipped to realize their whole-person potential. Prepared and confident, they will contribute to the world in the way they always dreamed of.
Learn. Work. Play. Greensboro is a growing, thriving epicenter of art, theatre, higher education, business and much more. It is the third largest city in North Carolina and centrally located in the bustling Piedmont region. Plus, the city is perfectly centralized for outdoor fun–just about two hours from the mountains and 3.5 hours from the ocean. Vibrant and diverse, Greensboro is one of North Carolina’s best places to learn, work and play. Close-knit campus. Big city advantage. Greensboro College is located within Greensboro’s vibrant downtown district making shopping, dining, entertainment, nightlife, theatre, art, sports and internships close and convenient. Explore the vintage shops on Elm Street, or check out a show at the city’s beloved Triad Stage. It’s all just steps away. Be Active. Do you walk, run, bike or skate? Greensboro’s more than 47,000 undergraduate and post-graduate students enjoy 80+ miles of city greenways and trails as well as a broader network of trails and parks including the Mountains to Sea Trail.

Third-party provider programs are also available. All this means our students have worldly adventures at their fingertips. *Institutional scholarships may be used toward exchange programs only, in London, Germany and Northern Ireland.

Working closely with businesses, schools, agencies and organizations, Village 401 gives students, faculty and staff opportunities to assist and learn from a large urban community as it meets some of its challenges.
