Karen from High Point, NC
Guilford College is home to very accepting and diverse students - we're very friendly! It's is a small place, everything is close together - affectionately called the Guilford Bubble - and everyone is close; you'll connect with people your first day. The campus is absolutely gorgeous all year round, and is central to a ton of great hangouts for college kids - we even have our own coffee shop called The Greenleaf, which has the best coffee in Greensboro!

Small, friendly and great learning environment. Good enough education for a Liberal arts school.
Kunga from India
This school is great for students who want to be in a free-minded enviroment. The class sizes are small so that every student may interact with his or her professor. The staff are willing to help each and every student succeed in both academically and socially.
