A Privilege to Serve
It is a privilege to serve as President of the North Greenville University Alumni Association and to represent the many alumni who have witnessed God’s blessings at NGU since its humble beginnings.
I had the privilege of attending NGU from 1981-1983 when it was North Greenville College, when only Associate's degrees were awarded to graduates, when there was no football team or marching band, when classes were conducted only four days a week, and when Homecoming was held during basketball season.
My, have times changed, and for the better! NGUAA is excited to participate in the changes taking place at NGU. The NGUAA Board of Directors wants to encourage you to do the same by reconnecting with alumni and the University through social media. We encourage you to check out our Facebook page, North Greenville University Alumni Association, as well as our website at www.ngu.edu/alumni.php to stay up to date with all of the activities planned and scheduled through the Office of Alumni Affairs and the Alumni Association.
We also encourage you to visit the campus and any location of NGU events scheduled throughout the year and to participate in those activities. We especially welcome you home for the exciting Homecoming Weekend events anticipated for you and your family. NGUAA is working with the University to enhance service and financial support for the University, to foster and maintain relationships between alumni and the University, and to support and participate in recruitment and retention of NGU students. We are proud of the difference NGU has made in our lives and we are honored to witness what NGU is doing in the lives of today’s students. We believe NGU has earned an A+ for its academic, administration, athletic, aesthetic, and most importantly spiritual offerings provided to NGU students allowing them to distiNGUish themselves. We invite you to come back to the mountain top and experience how God continues to bless the students, alumni, faculty, and staff of North Greenville University. We encourage you to become involved at North Greenville University by becoming engaged in the Alumni Association. Camilla (Gibson) Pitman NGUAA President 1983
