One of the many things I loved about Guilford when I arrived here four years ago was how much students cared about this school. Every year I have been here, there has been some effort by students trying to keep the College accountable for our core values. On top of their academic and extracurricular acti...

To my fellow students, This year will mark the third time I am running to be the president of student Senate.

On Feb. 28, a black, trans student was assaulted by an unknown assailant. In the early hours of March 1, Public Safety sent out an alert that misgendered the student, trivialized the assault and was, ultimately, too little too late. Soon after that, President Jane Fernandes sent out multiple ...
