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 late April 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 late April 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.

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, she spent the next four years studying voice, piano, and history, graduating with a music-performance degree in 2002. 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.

As a fan of genealogy, Elena has enjoyed discovering the many GC alumni families. Her husband, Chris, his two brothers, and daughter, Alyssa, have also earned bachelor’s degrees from GC.

One could say Julie grew up on the Greensboro College campus. Her babysitter often brought her to campus where she was inspired by the college culture and started counting down the years until she could head off to GC. Fast forward to 1989 when Julie graduated from GC with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and Minor in Art. Her favorite class was Statistics where she met her husband, Gary.

Julie worked for three decades in the admissions department at GC with the last position as Dean of Admissions. She started her career in 1990. A large majority of the Alumni based she most likely toured, worked with and/or admitted them to the College!

She is eager to reconnect with those she met along the way and make new friendships with those who proceeded before her.

“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.
