Want to know more about the city of Greensboro? Here are a few quick facts about our amazing city.

Meet Sharon Dei-Tumi from the class of 2015.

Learn about how she used the knowledge and skills from her time at Greensboro College to pursue a career in medicine. Sharon was a Biology major and double minored in Chemistry and Humanities.

“One of the things I also really liked about Greensboro College is the emphasis on what are you going to do when you leave here, and for me, what that looked like was…I was given the opportunity to do an internship…and through this internship, I ended up getting a job after college. I ended up finding out about public health, which I ended up doing as my master’s, and then through that, I found out about podiatry, and now I’m a podiatry student.” – Dei-Tumi

“I loved the GC Honors program and Greensboro College. I felt safe and a sense of genuine belonging at the college. I worked closely with my thesis advisor and professors who helped inspire me to define my path and passion of interest. That path has led me to my doctoral studies in Engineering Mechanics.”
