Serendipity could disappear due to its biggest threat — itself. Over the years, the springtime festival has turned into arguably the biggest student tradition on Guilford College’s campus. The number of write-ups consistently surpasses that of any other weekend of the year with as many as 73 incidents...

Time meant nothing. Community meant everything. Serendipity 2014 was a story of convergence and congregation. The events and activities hosted by Guilford College were a mere backdrop for the hodgepodge of tentatively connected people to come together and exist in each other’s company. If nothing...

Vibrant face paint, dancing bare feet and glitter. So much glitter. It’s got to be Serendipity. This year’s music and merriment festival kicked off with a bountiful feast at the Guilford garden on March 29. Tables dotted the grassy lawns, offering fresh and local foods: a whole hog from Cane...
