North Greenville College begins classes in Greer, January 5, 1976, when it will open the new extension center in the educational building of the First Baptist Church. Announcement of the trustee action to open the Greer branch was made by NGC President Dr. George Silver.
The decision to establish the new facility in Greer, to be known as North Greenville College at Greer, is to extend the ministry of North Greenville to the Greer area and surrounding communities. The move will provide their education in a Christian framework.
Possible courses will include some ten credit and ten non-credit courses according to Ms. Frances Rowles, Director of NGC at Greenville, who is also in charge of the Greer Division.
The three-day college will provide evening classes Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday each week. Students, adults, and veterans may begin or continue their college studies or take non-credit course they may desire or find helpful. Courses are offered for three hours each evening, including a 15-minute break, permitting the student to attend one night each week per class, saving both time and driving.
Credit courses will be provided for first and second year students. Anticipated courses include Bible, English, business law, business math, government, journalism, psychology, sociology, and speech. Courses for non-credit may include conversational French, English for foreigners, health, homiletics, income tax preparation, preparatory math, consumer problems, management, and folk guitar.
Instructors for the classes meet all accreditation standards. Several from the main campus at Tigerville will be available for the evening classes.
