    The wifi is terrible as well. $45k a year and they are not investing back into the college well. I would definitely recommend looking for a different college.

    Guilford is horrid at managing it's money and occasionally makes me consider transferring when they charge me extra things. For example I was 3 minutes late leaving my dorm over winter break so I was charged an extra $100 on my tuition. If you leave your key in the room more than one time it's $15 for every time they come to open it. Money is not an object to them and they will charge you for anything.

    It's just over all great. They have weird policies and such like a barefoot policy where you can walk around the entire campus barefoot and no one cares. (Except for the caf, but that's health and sanitary reasons.) They even have a nude policy where(and no one does it but you can start a trend if you want) you can, guy and girl, walk around nude. Takes the fun out of streaking but it's pretty cool.

    This is a pretty good school, but it is very expensive. If you like the college it is worth it, but it will not be to others.

    As a student, you will get your money's worth. The professors hold doctorate degrees, yet they are down to earth and interested in your success. The campus is easy to learn and everyone is friendly. It is also a very diverse campus and offers something for everyone.
