Rain. Rain. Rain. Bring galoshes, an umbrella, and vitamin D.

I have 90% of my tuition paid for through school-based scholarships.

We are in the mountains. People are nice, but don't expect much of a city life. Downtown Greenville is an excellent place to hang out, but it's 30 minutes away from school.
College Freshman 2013-07-28T19:34:00Z
Very few people do it and if they do get caught they are kicked out... No questions asked. There isn't much peer pressure from others that I can tell. I do keep to myself most of the time and hang with just a few of my friends who don't do any of that stuff but it seems to be pretty non existent around here.

The campus houses (which are about 10 minutes off campus) are really nice, I've lived in one for two years. Dorm on the main campus how ever are in need of some updating.

Parking at NGU is ok, its not the best ever, and certainly not visually appealing, but the school does there best to make sure that everyone has a place to park on campus. Be prepared to walk at least 10 minutes to class if you get the farthest away parking.
College Junior 2013-07-26T02:11:06Z
The scenery is absolutely beautiful, its located at the foot of the blue ridge mountains so as far as out door activities go, there is plenty to do. If you're willing to drive about 20 minutes off campus you will find yourself in several small towns with plenty of awesome coffee shops small restaurants. 30 minutes away is Greenville's minor league team (who wins often) they are a lot of fun to see. There are plenty of places to Golf, Longboard (lots of hills) and do whatever else you could want to do outside.
College Junior 2013-07-26T02:06:13Z
There are 3 towns around North Greenville University, Travelers Rest, Cherry Dale, and Downtown Greenville, all of which have everything to the best fast food, locally owned small restaurants, to 4 and 5 star restaurants that have some of the best food you will ever eat.

Guys & Girls:
I would say the average NGU student is on the better-looking end of the spectrum, although I would also say there are a huge amount of absolutely stunning girls and far fewer highly attractive guys. The average NGU student has varied interests, and there are all sorts of different types of people represented at NGU, but for the most part, the students are friendly and pleasant and non-judgmental for the most part, and they are willing to participate in many activities of all sorts. Most students are pretty social, and couples abound on campus.
College Sophomore 2013-07-24T20:33:26Z
I have been very satisfied with the program thus far, and I believe the faculty does their best to give students the best opportunities considering the fairly small size of the school and sometimes limited resources. I feel I will be well-prepared for graduate school after this program.
College Sophomore 2013-07-24T20:28:29Z
I would give this an A+, but most locations are 20-30 minutes away from the campus. Downtown Greenville has plenty of options, and Traveler's Rest is slightly closer and has some inexpensive options, but these places do require a little bit of a drive.
College Sophomore 2013-07-24T20:27:04Z
I have had no problem getting financial aid from NGU. The only thing I dislike is the fact that I am not eligible for any full academic scholarship because I am not a resident of South Carolina. I wish there were some way around that for out-of-state students, because if I were from SC, I would most likely be going there for free.
College Sophomore 2013-07-23T22:46:17Z
It is a private christian university so there aren't any big parties, no bars and there is no nightlife.
College Sophomore 2013-07-23T22:44:34Z
They do have a lot of student events going on weekly.
College Sophomore 2013-07-23T22:28:52Z
The housing is pretty similar across the campus. There are weekly room checks and cleanliness is a must. The rooms are split for two people and connected to another room by a bathroom.
College Sophomore 2013-07-23T22:19:43Z
North Greenville's campus is set on an absolutely beautiful hilly lanscape with breathtaking views of the surrounding buildings and Tigerville area. The students are almost always seen with smiles on their faces and always stop to talk to passerby's. The classrooms are perfect for learning and always open for students to come in and do some extra studying if they don't choose the library. The Stud is a very popular hangout and is constantly filled with with students.
College Sophomore 2013-07-22T04:45:53Z
Rain. Lots and lots of rain. The students call it "rainy Tuesday" because it rains almost every tuesday. I have worn shorts and flip flops and boots and a sweater all in one week. You never know what to expect.
College Sophomore 2013-07-22T04:42:29Z
It is very easy to get involved with almost any type of sport at NGU. They offer intramurals in almost every sport for people like me who are not very athletic. From air force football to the recently added men's volleyball, they have tons to offer.

Getting financail aid was not as hard as I thought it was going to be. Once I explained to them that I would not be able to afford their original price, they put together a new financial aid package that I was able to afford.
College Sophomore 2013-07-22T04:33:31Z
I gave off-campus dining a B+ because the options and variety are great, but the distance of those places are so far. However, if students want to dress up and celebrate, there are plenty of 4 and 5 star restaurants in downtown Greenville, which is 25-30 minutes away. Also, there are options to go places late at night (and cheap) such as Waffle House and Cookout; both of these are within 20 minutes of the school. There is a Thai place directly across the street from the school, but after eating there one time, I chose not to go back.
College Sophomore 2013-07-22T04:27:58Z
I gave NGU a C- because the school is at a miniumum of 10-15 minutes away from any apartments. The ones that are available are pretty decent but they are so far away. Also, it is very hard to really enjoy an apartment at NGU because to live off campus you have to be a senior, and everyone knows how crazy busy your senior year in college is. The only other way to not live on campus is if your permanent address is somewhere nearby or you get married.
College Sophomore 2013-07-07T16:02:17Z
North Greenville's campus life is pretty interesting because there is so many different options for everyone. Plenty of green space to play ultimate frisbee, an art gallery and theatre, and a brand new football and soccer stadium to enjoy on Saturday mornings!
College Sophomore 2013-07-07T15:57:06Z
Well, it is either, walk or drive. There is no shuttle to take you to the top of campus if you live in crusader court. Also if you live in crusader court, and it is raining or snowing you just have to truck on through it because there is no parking for people living in Crusader Court. There is the thought of calling campus security and having them come pick you up, but they sometimes take a long time and you may be late to your class or event.

Health & Safety:
North Greenville's campus feels safe as a guy, If I were to put myself in a girls shoes they might feel a little unsafe at night because some of the area's on campus are poorly lit. Other than that, the health department does a good job of being open and available to sick students. Overall, the security of North Greenville's campus is solid, if you are a girl just travel with a friend, most of you do anyways!
College Sophomore 2013-06-19T18:57:40Z
Most NGU students have no trouble finding an internship within their senior year.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
