Filed under In Print, Letter to the Editor, Opinion

Everyone’s life is a story, and no one’s story stands on its own. Sometimes our stories briefly brush up against one another’s before continuing on. And sometimes, if we’re really blessed, they overlap completely and forever. I thought about this in the days leading up to Thursday’s memorial...

One of the most unique things about Guilford College is our winter, or January, term, but after this year, there will no longer be a January term at the College.
