TIGERVILLE, S.C. – For the twenty-first consecutive year, North Greenville University welcomed the largest number of students in school history, including a record 769 new students.
University officials said a combined total of 2,603 undergraduate, graduate, and online students began classes this fall, an increase of 136 more students over last year.
The 769 new students represent in increase of nearly 15 percent over last fall's enrollment. Among them, 70 are Honors Scholars, a program established in 1980 to offer academically-gifted students courses, seminars, and activities specifically designed to challenge and enrich their educational experience.
In addition, NGU welcomed 117 Palmetto Fellows Scholarship recipients. These represent the very best academic students from South Carolina.
“We consider ourselves blessed to have the opportunity to share the NGU experience with a school record of new students,” said Keli Sewell, vice president for enrollment services.
Approximately 175 students anticipate graduation this December.
