We welcome you with Pride to the Greensboro College Alumni pages. 

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. 

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 184 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.

Keep Roaring!

As the sunlight streamed through the windows of Finch Chapel during her audition, Elena knew Greensboro College felt like home. After earning the top music scholarship available, she spent the next four years studying voice, piano, and history, graduating with a music-performance degree in 2002. Following commencement, Elena 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. As a fan of genealogy, Elena has enjoyed discovering the many GC alumni families. Her husband, Christopher, and two of his brothers also earned bachelor’s degrees from GC. Elena lives in High Point with her husband and three daughters.

“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.”

Joshua currently studies astrodynamics at Virginia Tech University and is an Engineering Mechanics Ph.D. Candidate.
