NGU Military Appreciation Day

Each year, North Greenville University dedicates one of its home football weekends to the honor of United States military personnel, both active duty, veterans and retirees. The University extends a warm welcome to any and all service men and women, from all branches of service. 

The weekend begins on Friday before game day with a Retreat Ceremony held on the central campus at 1600 hours (4:00 pm). After the ceremony, the Second Annual Alumni Talent Show will be held at Turner Chapel at 1830 hours (6:30 pm). The theme of this year's Talent Show is Patriotic Americana - a tribute to our military.

Game Day on Saturday, the NGU Crusaders will face Virginia University of Lynchburg. Before and during the game, and at half time, special events will take place to honor our community's military service personnel and veterans.  

Wear your uniform, or present a military ID, and you can get into the game FREE!

Kick off time is 1350 hours. (1:30 pm)

There will be military displays and demonstrations, patriotic music, and a tailgate BBQ for military members and their families.

NGU is proud of its students, staff and faculty, and of the surrounding community of Tigerville and beyond, who have given of themselves in service to our nation. We will always honor those who have acted in defense of our God-given rights, most vitally our right to worship Jesus Christ freely and without oppression and the right to freely tell others about the life, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus, so that they might come to know Jesus as their Lord and Savior.

We hope you will be able to join us on November 9th and 10th!
