    I worked at GU. High school athletes are recruited relentlessly to increase enrollment Here's the deal: GU is NCAA Division III. If you are a football player, don't expect to play unless you are at the top of 120 players. You are promised the world - you will be part of a 'family'. I cannot tell you how any students felt desperately alone. There is nothing to do in Greenville. Going to Dollar General will be your outing. The Student Union is awful.
    You will be expected to go to chapel regularly (you will be checked). If you party, it's okay. Everyone knows most of the students drink, have sex, etc. The higher ups are in denial - they need warm bodies for enrollment numbers so they don't want to know.
    GU is horribly expensive, and *anyone* can get in. You will be left with tens of thousands of dollars in debt. Go to a community college and learn a trade in the medical field, etc. Job demand is high!

    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!
    Greenville was the college I was hoping for whenever I graduated high school. It was small and close to home so that I could commute and save money on room and board. Greenville has a lot of programs to choose from and they have a really good pre-med program which I was looking for. Not only that, but I was able to continue my tennis career with a great coach and great teammates. I have had really good professors who want the students to succeed and will even meet up outside of class time in order to help their students. Also I feel really safe on Greenville's campus. The only reason I did not give Greenville five stars is because they recently cut a lot of programs which forced some of my close friends to transfer and some good professors to be fired.
