What should I know about chapel at NGU?
Chapel is held on Mondays and Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. in Turner Chapel. We also offer occasional evening services at different times throughout the semester. The worship is typically led by students, and the speakers come from all around the world.
Chapel is worth half of one credit hour each semester. A student’s grade is based on appropriate chapel conduct and attendance:
- A = present at 22 or more services
- B = present at 20 to 21 services
- C = present at 18 to 19 services
- D = present at 16 to 17 services
- F = present at 15 or fewer services
Is there a curfew at NGU?
NGU does not have a curfew; however, our campus front gate and main buildings close at 12:00 a.m. on weekdays and 1:00 a.m. on weekends. We have a no-loitering policy after these hours. If students are coming or going, we ask that they have their NGU Student IDs with them. Our Campus Security Officers may ask to check their IDs in order to ensure that those entering campus are permitted to be here. This is a successful security measure we take to make sure that our students are safe.
