Why I love NGU: I love North Greenville because of the Christian worldview that is given through teacher instruction as well as through everyday activities. On top of that, I also love the ability to have personal relationships with my professors. As someone who feels led into the ministry, being able to know my professors on a personal level allows me to learn more from them than just what they teach within the classroom that can be applied to the ministries that I will serve in while attending North Greenville as well as after I graduate and begin seminary.

Business AdministrationWhy I love NGU: I am blessed to be at a school where Christ is the focus. I love the Christian atmosphere that creates our family here on campus, and since there are many ways to get involved, I have been able to get to know many others around me. I also enjoy our location! Being up in the mountains is like another home for me, and it is peaceful being away from the bustling city, yet in perfect range of town. Most importantly, I truly appreciate how much our faculty and stuff care about us. Mark 10:45 displays a perfect example of a servants attitude, and I believe they follow it with hearts eager to serve.
