First Year Program

The mission of the First-Year Experience Program is to encourage new North Greenville University students to develop spiritually, academically, and socially using creative, engaging, and relevant experiences within the context of a Christian worldview. The FYE course is designed to link new students to the university through various informational seminars, service projects, interest sessions, worship opportunities, and social functions. Our desire is for all new students to be highly engaged with the University community, develop a clear understanding of the University’s mission and find a connection with an area that would allow them to serve and use their abilities.

Peer Mentors

Peer mentors are a crucial part of the First-Year Experience Program, and they are tasked with assisting first-year students as they transition to college life. Peer mentors attend the weekly class meeting and connect with students outside the classroom on a regular basis throughout the semester. Students who have already completed at least one full-time semester of coursework at NGU and who have already completed NGU’s FYE course are eligible to apply for this scholarship.
