Intramurals offer a wide variety of competitive sports for students not participating in the University's varsity athletic teams. These exciting sports programs include flag football, softball, basketball, volleyball, and ultimate Frisbee, just to name a few. Each semester is filled with opportunities for students to compete with other students. We believe many valuable skills are learned through athletic competition. Among these are teamwork, trust, camaraderie, and leadership.

The Office of Student Leadership is over several services provided to the North Greenville University student body. These programs are designed to provide support to students and foster student development. The Office of Student Leadership serves and engages students through three main programs: First-Year Experience Mentors, partnering with Campus Ministry's Big-Little Program, and educational seminars and workshops.
The Office of Student Leadership desires to develop servant leaders in the context of our community. As part of the student leadership program, students will grow a healthy personal relationship with the Lord and strive to become humble, servant leaders to the university community and those around them.
Student Experience Outcomes
Students participating as leaders will:
- Develop personal relationships through one-on-one mentoring.
- Gain a distinctive understanding of the campus community.
- Develop leadership, relationship, and conflict resolution skills.
- Introspectively account for areas of growth in their own life and overcome them.
Each semester, the Office of Student Leadership offers several seminars and group opportunities designed to provide growth opportunities in specific areas. Some topics that have been covered are relationship skills and dating, financial planning, leadership skills, and conflict resolution.
If you have any questions about opportunities in this area, please contact Student Life.
The FYE Mentor program allows upperclassmen to mentor
the incoming freshmen through their First Year Experience class. These
FYE Mentors build relationships with their "Mentees" and walk with them
through their first semester of college.
If you have any questions about the FYE program or becoming a FYE Mentor, feel free to contact Billy Watson.
The one-on-one mentor program pairs freshman and transfer students
to sophomores, juniors, and seniors. The mentee will not only have a
friend on campus, but also someone who can help answer questions and navigate campus life.
If you would like to have a mentor or would like to become a mentor, contact Student Life.
Every semester, the Office of Student Leadership sponsors student round table events. At these events, students are invited to participate in a general forum to share ideas for future improvements at NGU, and discuss any campus issues. Comments on specific areas of improvement are welcome. These events will also be listed on the Student Life Calendar.
