North Greenville is by far the best University in my opinion. There is so much that you can do. You can really concentrate on your academics there. The professors are really nice too, especially mine! I'm a Music Ed. Major, so it's really important that I understand the material that I am learning at the particular time. The music professors do a really good job on checking on their students as well as encouraging their students and making sure that they are ok and cheering them up if they are sad!

I love the small campus environment at NGU, because I've gotten to know so many great friends of mine that I didn't know at the beginning of last semester. I also love going to a school where I can witness God's beautiful creation. Every morning on the way to class, I get a breathtaking view of the Appalachian Mountains; that view never gets old. I have also been blessed with the amazing professors and mentors that have come into my life, as well as a great team of people that make the NGU Chapel experience look like a little glimpse of heaven. Lastly, I am thankful that I can call myself a college athlete, as I have been recruited to play for our men's soccer team as a Goalkeeper. Soccer has been a passion of mine for the past decade, so I am grateful to be given the opportunity to continue my career for the next few years.
North Greenville University is a place filled with loving and caring people. Everyone on campus, even down to the landscapers, care about you. They all want you to have the best experience and desire for you to be taken care of.
The professors are absolutely incredible. Because of the smaller class size, you are able to connect with your professors on a deeper level than just a number. They know your name and recognize you walking on campus. They care about you and your well-being. I have encountered many professors who have invested their time and energy into helping not only with my grades but with my everyday struggles. This is a special place and you will not regret coming here.
