Friends Center @ Eva Campbell House
Friends Center is happily located in the beautiful and newly renovated Eva Campbell house. Eva Campbell was born on April 5, 1895 and would later become a Professor of Biology at Guilford College, serving on the faculty from 1924-1961.
She pursued graduate work at Ohio State University, completing her Ph.D. in 1931, and mentored generations of Guilfordians who went on to successfully complete medical school.
Fifteen years after her retirement, she wrote ” My teaching and my students during my years at Guilford College have been the deepest satisfaction of my life. I am very proud of the many men and women whom I have taught…”
