Explore The City Of Greensboro!

Besides the amazing campus, one of the greatest things about Greensboro College is the close proximity to downtown Greensboro. It’s rare to find such a beautiful, historic, small college campus nestled alongside big-city advantages. Your commute from dorm to classroom is two minutes, plus you’re just steps from restaurants, shopping, sports, theatre, arts, nightlife, and internships. Our red-brick walkways make way to more than 80 miles of trails and greenways throughout the city. Just two hours from the mountains and 3.5 hours from the ocean, you’re uniquely located to do it all.
