We welcome you with Pride to the Greensboro College Alumni Section.
This page is for Greensboro College alumni to find the latest information on awards, events, classmate news and more. Greensboro College’s Alumni Association was created in 1884 (46 years after the college’s 1838 founding) with a mission to inspire loyalty, pride and support among alumni, friends, students and their families.
Did you receive an email/postcard/phone call from a company asking for your personal information and said they were working with the College? Are you wondering if this a legitimate project or is it a scam? It is not a scam – it’s legit!
The Alumni Office recently partnered with PCI (also known as Publishing Concepts) to produce an updated alumni directory. PCI is a family owned business based in Dallas, TX. They have been publishing directories for close to 100 years. The project will start March 8, 2024, and at that time, you may receive an email/postcard/phone call asking you to update your personal information for the college. This project allows Greensboro College to receive important updates to our database so we can better serve you, our alumni.
PCI will start reaching out to alumni to verify and/or update your information starting March 8, 2024.
GC Alumni are graduates of the college or those who completed a full year. We share a rich legacy with some 20,000 of us from the past 185 years and graduating Seniors are inducted into the Alumni Association at Spring Convocation. There are no dues or fees.
The Alumni Association is led by a representative board of volunteers that meets three times each year, and recognizes four distinguished alumni and one outstanding faculty member with awards presented at Homecoming each fall.
Our biggest alumni event, Homecoming, is the third weekend of September when we gather for class reunions, affinity reunions, present awards and accolades, cheer on athletic teams, and celebrate college milestones.
Come and share our Pride.

As the sunlight streamed through the windows of Finch Chapel during her audition, Elena knew Greensboro College felt like home.

Following commencement, she joined the GC work family as the switchboard operator. In 2007, she became the Director of Advancement Services, supervising the alumni and donor database, providing prospect development & research, managing gift records and reporting, and facilitating donor recognition and stewardship.
