Sport Management (Business Concentration)

Why I love NGU: One of the most impactful characteristics that North Greenville University possesses is the relationship between the students and faculty. The presence of professors and staff that look at you and see you as a person rather than a name on a roster is positive for your growth as a student, and more importantly your growth as a person. I quickly found that a simple walk down an office hallway turned into conversations with incredible people who have so much to teach and give! Itís a core principle at NGU for the professors and staff to get to know the students on a personal level. These relationships will help you to thrive as a student and a person beginning your adult life!
