Guardiola graduated with a major in economics modified with sociology and education and a minor in religion. His interests and activities on campus were equally varied. During his time as an undergraduate, Guardiola captained the Dartmouth co-ed cheer team, spent three years as a mentor in the First Year Student Enrichment Program, served as secretary for Palaeopitus senior society, sat on both the Committee on Standards and Organizational Adjudication Committee, completed the Rockefeller Center's Management Leadership Development Program, tutored in economics, and worked as a student manager at the Collis Student Center. Additionally, he spent time his junior year as a James O. Freedman Presidential Scholar studying the relationship between Mexican immigration and public support for schools, a topic of particular relevance to his home state of Texas. Off campus, Guardiola received the Rick Angulo World Experience Award while studying in the Spanish department's Language Study Abroad Program in Barcelona, Spain. He worked in Harlem the summer between his junior and senior years for the Children's Aid Society as an intern for the Youth Employment Summer Program (founded by Michael Stern '59), where he was able to apply his classroom training to real-world issues. Upon graduating, he was inducted into Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society and awarded the Grace and James S. Parkes 1920 class prize. Guardiola plans to further his education after the Presidential Fellowship and attain graduate degrees in both economic policy and business administration.
