Former President of NGU Paul Talmadge

Dr. Paul A. Talmadge, the sixth president of the then North Greenville College (NGC), died November 20. He served as president from 1988 to 1991.

"President Talmadge was a gentleman and a scholar, which is among the highest praise a university can offer someone of his generation. He loved this community deeply and served sacrificially," said NGU President Dr. Gene C. Fant, Jr. "His entire career was spent investing in Christ-first education, primarily in faculty roles at NGU and our sister institution Anderson University. In retirement, he joined the Billy Graham Training Center staff in Asheville before retiring with his wife, Billie. We pray for his entire family as they mourn his loss."

BJU Students in Class

Bob Jones University President Steve Pettit announced a tuition freeze for the 2021-2022 academic year to assist students and make college more affordable.

“Although BJU was recently named by U.S. News & World Report as the best value regional university in the Carolinas, this tuition freeze continues to solidify BJU as an incredibly affordable, Christian liberal arts education,” said Pettit. “With parents and students struggling with the uncertainties of COVID-19, the tuition freeze will help ease financial stress for our students and their parents.”
