NGU’s Campus Recognized in Top 25 Beautiful Ranking

Tigerville SC (August 12, 2016) Christian Universities Online (CUO) has just announced its list for “25 Most Beautiful Christian Colleges and Universities in the South 2017,” including North Greenville University at spot #22.  

CUO believes campus appearance should not be a primary criteria for determining where to attend college, but a pleasant environment in which to study and learn is important. Considering both natural and man-made elements of each campus, CUO created the list to present the best the South has to offer when it comes to campus beauty.

“Our campus backdrop of the Blue Ridge Mountains is probably one of the best settings you will find anywhere,” says NGU’s Interim President Randall Pannell. “It’s easy to showcase a school that offers both the beauty of the mountains and the vibrant scene of downtown Greenville just minutes away.”

This ranking uses the same methodology found in CUO’s earlier ranking, “50 Most Beautiful Christian Colleges and Universities in the U.S. 2016.” In both of these rankings, a variety of categories has been considered and weighted equally to provide as objective of a ranking as possible.  

The categories considered include 1) Continuity of Campus, 2) Architectural Style, 3) Signature Building(s), and 4) Natural Setting. The scores in each category were standardized and then combined to rank these top 25 schools.  

Each school considered in this ranking is either a member of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) or considered member eligible.
