Guilford's admissions publica

than just future Quakers. The col

Harrison Bailey (RHB), the firm which
designed the publications, said, "In
higher education, there's no higher
award to be won." Bailey and an
other RHB employee, Lissa Hunt,
worked together on the project
The purpose of the new
viewbook and accompanying pam
phlets is clear. Bob Spatig, who was
in charge of the project at Guilford's
end, told RHB, "We want something
reflective of this community, but

The result of a year of work is a
booklet of which Spatig says, "The
language is strong, but it's not text
heavy." First-year students Kendall
Kibby-Deck and Kate Hesse agree
that, "It's like eye-candy with lots of
short stuff to read."
This was accomplished in large
part by the use of what Spatig terms
"Guilford words." Guilford words are
those that Bailey and Hunt heard
again and again as they interviewed
students on campus during the win

through which Bailey and Hunt be
came acquainted with the commu
nity was "circles of influence." The
admissions office selected nine
people from the Guilford community.
Each of those people then de
termined his or her circle of influ
ence, or those people who had been
most influential in their Guilford ex
perience. The result was a sampling
of the diversity of the Guilford stu
dent body and faculty.
The resulting viewbook differs
from the previous one in several
ways. Gone are the glossy pages and
metallic green cover. Gone are the
page-long written answers to ques
tions. After seven years without radi
cally changing the viewbook, Guil
ford was ready for a change.
Spatig says, "I think, in general,
we're seeing more students who are
appropriate for Guilford." He be
lieves that the new viewbook is mak
ing Guilford more competitive by
better highlighting the college's dis
Students agree that the new se
ries is effective. A special favorite of
many is the campus visit pamphlet,
which asks the question, "What
would you say if you were trying to
explain the smell of popcorn?"
Candice Rosenfeld admits, "This is
honestly what got me interested in
Katie Hunter said the pamphlet
made her think, "If this school does
this kind of stuff all the time, I might
be interested in going there."
Apparently, many prospective
students are attracted by the new
publications. The month after Guil
ford started distributing the popcorn
pamphlet, campus visit rates rose 30
