About Us

Guided Discovery is Guilford’s centralized advising center, that offers holistic advising for all students. It is an integrated academic and career advising program which is staffed by academic-focused Guides and career-focused Guides. Before they begin their first semester, every student is assigned both an Academic Guide–who serves as their primary academic advisor for two years, and a Career Guide–who remains with the student for all four years. These assignments are determined by their choice of Pathway.

Guided Discovery offers services in:

  • Exploration of strengths, interests, majors and careers
  • Course registration
  • Connections with faculty and staff across campus
  • Referrals to campus resources
  • Wellness and self-care
  • Internships
  • Connections to experiential learning opportunities
  • Coaching for graduate school/job preparation
  • Guidance with job searches, cover letters and resumes 
  • Job shadowing opportunities
  • Connections with alumni and community partners
