NGU makes national ‘best’ lists

North Greenville University has been named to Forbes’ America’s Best Christian Colleges® and America’s Top Colleges® lists along with CBSNews Money Watch Best Professors list.

Forbes annual lists are released by Institutional Research and Evaluation, Inc. and CBS Money Watch posts the Best Professors rankings released by the Center for College Affordability and Productivity.

America's Best Christian Colleges® identifies colleges and universities providing the highest quality education in a Christian environment.

The Center for College Affordability and Productivity develops the Best Professors rankings through a methodology that uses RateMyProfessors.com evaluations to assess the quality of teachers and then rank the top 650 schools.

RateMyProfessors asks students to evaluate their professors on a 1-to-5 scale in three categories: easiness, helpfulness, and clarity. In devising the final score, the researchers put far less weight on the easiness category.

North Greenville was ranked seventh in the nation and the only South Carolina school to make the Top 25.

Other ‘Best Professor’ components include schools’ freshman retention rates, graduation rates, student debt levels, and graduates’ average starting salaries.

NGU is supported by the South Carolina Baptist Convention. North Greenville is also a member of the South Carolina Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, the International Association of Baptist Colleges and Universities, the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the National Christian College Athletic Association, the International Assembly for Collegiate Business Education, Tuition Exchange, Inc., and the National Association of Schools of Music, and National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education.
