Guilford College is located in Greensboro, North Carolina, a vibrant metropolitan area with seven colleges and universities enrolling more than 27,000 students. The campus is in an attractive residential neighborhood where students can walk to nearby stores, restaurants and cafes, or use public transportation to access the city’s social and cultural venues.

In his recent visit, former President Bill Clinton described Guilford College as “a place where people believe you can prepare for the modern world without giving up on all traditional wisdom.” Since 1837, Guilford has offered a practical liberal arts education guided by Quaker values. Our small classes and stimulating programs foster academic excellence, civic engagement, and a global perspective. Each student receives

personal guidance from faculty advisors. Experiential learning — including research, internships, and study abroad — helps strengthen the connection between thought and action. We believe that change begins with us. At Guilford, you’ll find professors who know your name and care about your goals, a college-wide commitment to civic engagement and volunteerism, and a range of green initiatives.

Why guilford?

Guilford Gets Good Grades Forbes magazine selected Guilford as part of its America’s Top Colleges list Guilford is a Great Value The Princeton Review ranks Guilford College among the nation’s “100 Best Value Colleges.” Only 49 colleges nationally—24 public and 25 private (including Guilford)—were named “Best Buys” by The Fiske Guide to Colleges

“As a first-

year student at Guilford, I gained confidence and realized that I have something to offer—as a peer tutor, a student leader, and ultimately a congressional intern. This year, I will study at Oxford for one semester—and I’ve been offered a job by one of the offices where I interned.”
