North Greenville University has canceled classes and most campus activities for Friday, Sept. 14, through Monday, Sept. 17 at both the Tigerville Campus and Tim Brashier Campus at Greer, as a result of Hurricane Florence, which is expected to impact our area this weekend.
University offices will close at noon on Friday and will reopen on Tuesday morning. Staff should check with their supervisors regarding the need to cover their areas. Faculty will work with students on meeting course requirements affected by closing. All classes have online presence through Blackboard.
“Classes have been canceled to give students the opportunity to make preparations for travel, ahead of the hurricane’s arrival and to anticipate delays in return to campus,” said NGU President Dr. Gene C. Fant, Jr. “If students leave campus to be with their families, we encourage them to travel safely and stay in touch with their faculty.”
The university will continue to offer essential services, including dining services, for those students remaining on campus. Students are asked to check their email and watch for Blackboard alerts for student messaging. For updates on athletic events, visit nguathletics.com.
