On-Site Campus Visits Resume for Prospective Students and Families

Tigerville, SC (June 11, 2020) One of the best ways to gauge if a college is the right fit is from the gut feeling from actually stepping foot on the campus. Visiting campuses is one of the most enjoyable parts of the application process and helps give students a sense of what it is really like attending that college.

During the summer months, accepted students often make a crucial second visit to the campus before making or solidifying their decision to attend. Also, rising high school seniors, juniors, and sophomores often visit with their families during their summer vacation break.

Effective June 1, the university has resumed on-site campus visits for prospective students and their families with an acknowledgement of risk. The university will follow DHEC guidelines regarding the use of personal protective equipment, social distancing, and cleaning to ensure the health and safety of all NGU stakeholders. 

Making a campus visit is a great opportunity to connect with current students, meet with an admissions representative, take a tour of the campus, meet with professors, and get to know other important people on campus. At NGU, it gives the a student a feel of the genuine, caring, and Christ-centered community that North Greenville is recognized for. 

During the school year, NGU offers an overnight option to allow a student to attend a class, stay in a residence hall, and see what student life is all about. It gives the opportunity to find out what the award-winning city of Greenville, a place Livability,com and U.S. News and World Report have called a “best place to live in the U.S., and the Blue Ridge Mountains have to offer.

“Can location contribute to a student’s educational achievement? Absolutely, “ said Vice President for Enrollment and Marketing/Communications Michael White. “With enthusiasm, we welcome you to elevate your view like no place in the nation. Something uniquely comes alive when you visit campus and walk in eye sight of the grandeur of the Blue Ridge Mountains and feel the life of the on-trend city of Greenville, SC."

The university stands strong and ready to continue serving the NGU community during the 2020-21 school year. Now more than ever, our community, nation, and the world needs transformational leaders who can offer innovative solutions to unexpected challenges.
