The group meets regularly to discuss the state of Guilford Athletics and
builds community among the school’s student-athletes and
non-student-athletes. Recent Guilford SAAC activities include a canned-food
drive and participation in Champs Life Skills, which promotes
intercollegiate athletics as a key part of the campus educational program
and the student-athlete as an integral part of the student body. It aims to
increase student-athletes’ community involvement and to engage the greater
Guilford community with the athletic department.
