Political Science, Class of 2012

Very interested in learning, and there is a surface attempt to adhere to Quaker values that never quite reaches the student body as a whole. There is a lot of divisiveness despite the Quaker tenet of equality. Divisions between athletes and non-athletes, traditional and adult students, ethnic identities, and drug culture vs. non-drug culture.

Very non-traditional - includes adult and traditional age students, but from varied background; diverse, alternative viewpoints

Fairly up to date on technology, classrooms and dorms are in historic buildings (mostly ADA compliant), and the dining services rely heavily on local foods and healthy eating (a large percentage of this local food comes from the Guilford farm!)
