NGU Stands Out as Top College with Conservative Values

Tigerville SC (June 12, 2016) In a 2016 release, North Greenville University has earned recognition as one of the best conservative colleges in the U.S.

NGU came in at spot #33 in “Newsmax's 40 Best Colleges for Conservative Values,” which highlights “outstanding institutions of higher learning that still cater to conservative values.”

“The reputation of the school is such now that, by the time [prospective students] get in my office, almost none of them say, ‘Is this going to be biblically grounded?’ I used to hear that on a regular basis,” says Walter Johnson, dean of NGU’s College of Christian Studies. “Our reputation precedes us.”

The Newsmax list includes both religious and secular universities based in California, New York, and everywhere in between. But NGU represents one of only two South Carolina Christian universities featured.

“All of the schools on this list have demonstrated a commitment to conservatism, either through their original mission statements, their curriculums, volunteer and work opportunities, or on-campus activities available to students,” the report reads.

Affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, NGU remains committed to conservative values on all fronts, striving to uphold its goal of providing each student with an exceptional education in an authentic Christian environment for a successful life of service.

Each student at NGU receives an education that integrates not only academic discipline and enriched cultural experiences, but also Christian worldview and lifestyle, including opportunities for volunteering both on campus, in the local church, and around the world.

“Over the past 15 years or so, we have had NGU students serving in more than 70 countries and well over half of our own United States,” says Allen McWhite, director for Cross-Cultural Engagement and Global Leadership at NGU.

Examples of ministries that NGU students have participated in include church planting; direct evangelism; flood and hurricane relief; children’s, youth, and university ministry; music ministry; medical ministry; prison ministry; sports and athletic ministries; and many more.

NGU has also recently appeared in best of conservative higher education lists published by Great College Deals and PrepScholar.
