First Year Experience

Welcome to Greensboro College

Starting college is an exciting time. That’s why Greensboro wants to make sure everything goes smoothly. The Office of First-Year Experience at Greensboro College helps students like you transition to college life. We are dedicated to preparing you for success the moment you become a member of The Pride. We do this by providing a holistic experience for first-year students through orientation, academic advising, residence life, first-year seminar, and athletics and clubs. 

Find Commitment. Find Community.

Our goal is to foster academic success, a seamless transition to college, and a sense of belonging at the College while serving as a central resource for all first-year students. Some of the ways we do that is with PAWS—Preparing, Advising and Welcoming Students—and Welcome Week.

“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.”
