The Guilford Undergraduate Symposium (GUS) offers students the opportunity to present, discuss, and show their findings in a variety of topics. In regards to sustainability, one student presented on the campus compost bins (The Earth Tubs) and the soil samples that were recovered from the vessel. Other students have presented on topics such as the livelihood of local wildlife species and the Energy Allowance Program on campus.

A brief description of food service area signage and/or brochures that include information about sustainable food systems:

Meriwether Godsey is Guilford College's food service provider. In the main cafeteria, organic and local dishes (some from our campus farm) are noted as such with signs. The entryway is clad with placards regarding nutrition, local & organic food, and seasonal eating. The dining room tables are often decorated with table tents that outline various sustainability initiatives happening on campus.

A brief description of signage on the grounds about sustainable groundskeeping and/or landscaping strategies:

Every trash bin has an accompanying recycling bin. Whereas the recycling bins have stickers that identify what can be recycled, the trash bins have a big sticker placed on them that reads "LANDFILL" as to reminder the community where their garbage goes. This helps raise awareness about what we throw away and its end result.

At the Guilford College bike shop, students, faculty and staff can drop by and get a quick, free safety check-up at our location in the basement of Shore Hall. There are also fantastic discounts on tune-ups, bike rentals, parts and other services to keep the wheels rolling. Rental bikes are available to the Guilford community for a day, a week or the whole semester. The bike shop fosters and supports a biking culture and community on campus. The bike shop also offers bicycling maps of Greensboro for commuters to find the safest route for bicyclists around town.

A brief description of the guide for green living and incorporating sustainability into the residential experience:

Residents of the North Apartments and theme houses receive educational information to help them understand how to reduce their energy consumption due to their participation in our Energy Allowance program. They see a pie chart showing where most residential energy use comes from, are given practical tips to lessen energy use, and follow a benchmark of kWh energy use that changes each month.
