Tigerville, SC (Oct. 24, 2023) Alumni awards, class reunions, and a football tailgate are on the schedule as North Greenville University (NGU) celebrates Homecoming in Tigerville on Oct. 27-28.

“Homecoming at NGU is special,” said Lamont Sullivan, NGU’s senior associate vice president of Alumni Engagement and Athletics Development. “It’s an incredible moment that showcases how amazing this place is. It’s a time to honor the past, celebrate the present, and embrace a brighter future together.”

The celebration opens with the 35th annual Marion Moorhead Golf Classic on Friday (Oct. 27), beginning at 9 a.m. at Cherokee Valley Country Club. Proceeds of the tournament will benefit North Greenville University’s General Scholarship Fund.

An alumni awards and class reunion dinner will be held on Friday night at Moore Hall at Hayes Ministry Center. The event will honor the graduating classes of 1973, 1983, 1993, 1998, and 2013 as well as NGU’s Distinguished Alumni award winner.

A class reunion brunch will take place from 9-11 a.m. on Saturday in the President’s Dining Hall, and campus tours will be offered at 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. from Hayes Ministry Center.

An All-Alumni Tailgate will begin at 11 a.m. in front of Melvin and Dollie Younts Stadium, as the North Greenville University football team gears up to take on Mississippi College at 2 p.m. The event will also feature a Kids Zone for young attendees and families.

“While you are here this week, take a moment to walk the campus, and reconnect with friends, faculty and staff, and enjoy all that God is doing at our Alma Mater,” Sullivan said.
