Tigerville, SC  –­ North Greenville University held a ceremonial unveiling of the new street name leading from Poinsett Street to the school’s Tim Brashier Campus at Greer on Friday, July 20. The street, formerly Ryans Corp Drive, is now named Walter Brashier Drive in honor of Dr. T. Walter Brashier, the graduate school’s namesake. 

 

Brashier and his wife, Christine, have been two of the most generous and faithful supporters of NGU. Their generosity to the university has spanned over four decades. Their first commitment was a downtown Greenville office building in the 1970s. Since that time, they have started an undergraduate scholarship fund, supported several capital projects, given the lead gift to launch the T. Walter Brashier Graduate School in 2005, and served on several university committees, boards, and councils.

It’s that time of year! The season of searching for #2 pencils, brightly colored binders, and that oh-so-special book bag is here. It’s an exciting time, full of anticipation for school-aged children and their parents.

But as the first day of school approaches, families often find shopping for crucial school supplies comes with a heavy price tag. Parents can end up unloading hundreds of dollars on back-to-school gear. Fortunately, with South Carolina’s Sales Tax Free Weekend coming up in early August, you can save even more.

Of course, you want to supply your child with the right materials, but you also want to avoid over-spending. So how can you make the most of your hard-earned dollars? It’s simple: plan to shop smart.

Tigerville, SC – North Greenville University, recognized as one of the most notable conservative Christian universities in the Southeast, has entered into a conditional admissions agreement with AGAPE English Language Institute (Agape). The agreement’s purpose is to streamline the admissions process into programs at NGU.

Agape is an international institute providing English language education to international students. It will provide applicant referrals who are suitable and qualified candidates to attend NGU’s traditional undergraduate and onsite graduate programs offered at NGU’s Tim Brashier Campus. International students must be resident students, so this agreement does not apply to the online degree programs unless the Agape student returns to their home country and completes the degree online.
