The instructors are amazing. They really inspire you to do your very best! I have appreciated the opportunities we receive within the classroom as well as outside of the classroom. I enjoyed traveling to St. Louis for my Theology class and experiencing the different churches and people. I also appreciated working with an area St. Louis school and gaining the opportunity to work with children and instructors there. The experience has furthered my interest and excitement for the major I have chosen in Elementary Education!

My experience with Greenville University is quite next to amazing. I have never felt more involved with my education than ever. I mean it is like I want to shoot for that A+ on my papers, and even further for my final grade. I want to strive for better, and I have GU to thank for that!
I like the Christian community we have at school, the chapels in the morning and Vesper worship nights are awesome. All the school staffs are so welcoming and helpful when you need them. The food is very healthy for a school in my opinion. The backroom is amazing we have a lot of talented people who can sing and do other stuff too. People are very friendly and nice. There is a big community of international students. The campus is small but very pretty. The sport teams are very good if you are into sports. The activities are awesome usually there is a lot of free food,games and music playing. We have different association that you can participate such as Mosaic, International Club, and others. We got intramurals activities which are pretty cool too. The dorms are pretty cozy and comfortable. The classes are decently hard depending on the major.
