NGU Ranked Among Best College Deals

North Greenville University has been ranked among the 20 best college deals for conservative Christians by Great College Deals. The ranking was published on the organization's website in June.

NGU ranks 19th.

The 20 best deals were selected and ranked based on total number of points. Points were awarded based on the following criteria: presence of Bible and Christ-centered academics; active campus groups dedicated to worship; a balance of liberal arts education and spiritual growth opportunity; and any additional features that add value for the Christian student. Featured colleges scored the highest among schools with a net price of $30,000 or less (the National Center for Education Statistics' College Navigator database was used to determine net price).

Affiliated with and committed to the South Carolina Baptist Convention, NGU is a co-educational liberal arts institution which provides opportunities for higher education in a biblically sound, Christ-centered environment. The university serves over 2,400 students and features more than 40 undergraduate, graduate, and online degree options and reaches students from all over the world. Located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, the university's main campus is located in Tigerville, S.C., just north of Greenville.

"We are thrilled to be ranked among the best college deals for conservative Christians," says Interim President Dr. Randall Pannell. "Our faculty and staff members remain committed to conservative values and to the university's vision: to provide each student with an exceptional education in an authentic Christian environment for a successful life of service. We are proud to offer biblically sound, Christ-centered, and affordable higher education."

Students at NGU are taught to be both knowledgeable in their studies and active in a Christian lifestyle. The Bible is the foundational context for education regardless of one's choice of major, and emphasis is kept on the work of Jesus Christ.

In addition to a broad range of degree options, NGU offers a pre-Seminary program for Christian students who wish to advance to post-graduate work at NGU's T. Walter Brashier Graduate School of one of the six Southern Baptist seminaries. Learn more about all the degree options.
