NGU Ranks Among Best in South Carolina

North Greenville University ranks among the best in South Carolina according to a newly released ranking by College Choice’s 2017 Best Colleges in South Carolina.

The independent online publication considered test scores, student-to-faculty ratios, student body diversity, and return on investment in calculating its rankings.

The site highlighted South Carolina’s college choices, from a big-time college experience with school spirit to a small liberal arts campus experience with a Christ-centered emphasis.

 “In short, South Carolina has something for everyone, which is important in an economy which needs more and more highly trained and educated workers,” said Christian Amondson, the site’s managing editor.

The site touted North Greenville for its All-Steinway piano music school which means only Steinway pianos are used on campus. Steinway is like the Ferrari of the piano world, with only 99 other higher education institutions having this designation. NGU is also noted as the only Southern Baptist school in the state included on the best list.

“That statistic is a weight of total cost, including things like tuition and fees, against the expected early career income for graduates. We want you to be able to get the best education possible, but we also want you to be successful post-college as well. All of our data comes from IPEDS, the database put together by the National Center for Education Statistics,” the website said.
