Tigerville, SC (January 17, 2024) Students, alumni, and friends of North Greenville University (NGU) can leave their mark on The Donnan/COBE Project by participating in NGU’s “Light on a Hill” campaign.

The campaign invites participants to purchase commemorative bricks that will be part of the grand entry leading into the renovated Robert W. Plaster Free Enterprise Center. Each brick will be engraved with names or messages.

“We are grateful for the incredible response to the start of the Light on a Hill Campaign,” said Lamont Sullivan, Senior Associate Vice President for Alumni and Athletic Engagement. “This effort is helping us achieve something truly remarkable, while celebrating NGU’s history and our future.”

Situated at the highest point on NGU’s campus, the Robert W. Plaster Free Enterprise Center has been part of the educational journey for NGU students for nearly seven decades. It has served as a home for the university’s library, the business office, information technology services, and an array of classrooms and offices, including the president’s office.

The historic building now serves as the home for the College of Business and Entrepreneurship and NGU Senior Administration offices. The fully renovated structure also will provide students with a new commons area in the heart of the campus.

The 4-inch-by-8-inch bricks are $150 for alumni and friends, and $100 for 2023 NGU graduates and current students. To learn more, or to purchase bricks in the Light on a Hill campaign, visit
