I'm inclined to agree with Pug here. College seems to focus more on 
education, and I think of a guild as propagating the art. I guess that 
depends on whether you have a positive or negative view of medieval 
guilds - negative, that they limited themselves to those willing to 
follow their rules and learn their skills, positive, that they passed 
on their expertise in order to improve and propagate themselves.
