NGU Reacts to Coastal Evacuations due to Hurricane Matthew

With the threat of Hurricane Matthew approaching the South Carolina coastline, the state of South Carolina has asked coastal residents to evacuate the coastal area. North Greenville University is offering shelter on campus for families of coastal area students on a first-come, first-served basis and as long as space is available. 

Families are asked to contact the Office of Student Life at 864.977.7121, student.life@ngu.edu or contact Director of Student Life Billy Watson at jwwatson@ngu.edu. Families may begin contacting the school as soon as possible on Wednesday morning. 

Shelter, which will be provided at no cost, may be in open resident hall rooms or in other spaces on campus. The volume of requests for shelter will determine which spaces will be used.

"Families should bring blankets, pillows, etc. with them," said Watson.  "Also, students need to remind their families to bring all medications."

Food will be available.

"We are working with Aramark [food service provider] on the details for food availability and possible meal costs," Watson said. "To ensure that Aramark has a sufficient amount of food on campus, it is important that we know the number of people as soon as possible."

NGU hopes that offering this opportunity to families will help them during a very stressful emergency situation.

Watson wants all coastal families to know that, "we [North Greenville University] are praying for all of the families and friends that will be affected by this storm."
