| Guilford College prepares you well for a job in the restaurant industry. Even in Senior year, the school does very little to help soon-to-graduate seniors get started on their career. I graduated with no idea about the opportunities in my field, and the "career center" was less than helpful, they told me I could be a diplomat. When I sent them my resume I never heard anything back.I've met students across majors, many who were top of the class. Virtually everyone I know is underemployed, i.e. working in the restaurant industry. I don't know if I'm going to find job in my field, but coming from Guilford you wouldn't know they're out there |

When I visited guilford, I was entranced by the beautiful campus, and the friendly people. I became convinced that this was where I wanted to go. |
A year later, I regret my decision enormously.
Here is why:
-The student body hates guilford. Moral is extremely low (most people consider transfering) and the school could care less.
-No night life. Unless all you want from your weekends is smoking weed by the lake or drinking in your dorm room, guilfords social life literaly could not be worse. Parties are shut down by 12:30, and theres not too much going on off campus. This is an incredibly strict school.
-If you are an athlete, the administration wants you here. Sadly for you, the seventy five percent of the student body that are not athletes will hate you. You will be chased out of parties, avoided, and generally treated badly by most of the student body.
-If you are a hippie/potsmoking type congradulations, you are in the majority. Unfortunately for you, the administration wants you gone. Guilford is doing everything in its power to overhaul its image.
-people here are all about acceptance and diversity, as long as that diversity means skin color, and not diversity of opinion.
-guilford is nice on the outside, but if you go inside any of the buildings or dorms you will notice that they are actually quite shitty.
- the internet blows. Not like a little. Like alot. This midterms weekend it didnt work most of the weekend, and neither did ANY of the printers on campus.
-the food is awful. Just awful. Not much else to say about it.
-A joke, unless you are a bio major or something. Many of the staff are part time, or just waiting out their tenure. Last semester I had a history teacher who was literally dying in class.

| Going to school at Guilford is something I love. I have learned so much in my short time here without being given obscene amounts of work. Professors are generally approachable, and will send you e-mails or approach you if they sense that you're struggling. I love my major and my advisor within that. It's a beautiful campus with some okay resources.|
My complaints come with my peers. I am surrounded by kids who would rather party than anything else, which is a highly unattractive quality. Serendipity is a drunken clusterfuck. There has been puke on the steps several times this year, along with cups and cans of alcohol left in the bathroom. My peers post pictures of themselves while partying on facebook. It's not the partying I have a problem with, necessarily, it's just the fact that the culture surrounds it. If you don't party, generally, you won't be socially involved. Many students are snobby, exclusionary hipsters who like to bitch about the fact that administration now outlaws bonfires (rightfully, in my opinion) or that their friends got kicked out (again rightfully- you break the rules, i.e. be stupid, you get the boot). That being said, I have met a few incredible people here, but with the strong modifier being "few". Maybe it's just a first year thing.
I like going to school here, I hate living here.
By the way, the food isn't as bad as most students make it out to be.
