A typical Sneak Preview goes something like this:


At 4:00pm, the students all arrive and are welcomed at Hayes Ministry Center (which is the first building on the right whenever you pull onto campus). We have a short time of introductions and explanations about Sneak Preview to answer any questions. After that, the students are introduced to their "temporary" roommate for the evening. Once they’ve made their introductions, typically the student host will introduce the guest student to some more friends and get them settled in the dorm room. After that, they typically go to dinner and then BSU which is our student led worship service.  Coffee Houses are after BSU and full of student talent and entertainment.  If there's an intramural game on campus or some other sporting event, students may go to that.


The campus visit coordinator will arrange for the guest students to go to a class or two on Friday morning. We also have a time for them to meet with an admissions counselor at 10:00am to discuss any further questions.Parents are more than welcome to attend this meeting.

After the students have finished with their classes, the students are welcome to leave and head home. Everything normally wraps up around lunch time.

The NGU Admissions staff provides meal tickets for dinner, breakfast and lunch. We also provide guest students with an excused absence form to give to their guidance counselor for missing classes on Friday.
