What Students Are Saying

3.40 Average Rating
If you're considering Greenville College, I would encourage you to visit. I made my decision after being on campus. The atmosphere is cheerful and community-oriented. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.
Meagan from Nokomis, IL
Don't be deceived by the Christian label. Although it is an excellent place for Christians and it has a good Christian environment, there are many here who aren't Christians and are still loving the education. You learn a lot about Christianity, but there are also classes that teach history of Christianity and other religions. Except for chapel and COR classes, everything remotely Christian is optional. And whatever there is that is Christian will not shove the Bible down your throat--everything is done in love.
Caitlin from Texico, IL
Apply for as many scholarships as you can.
Go to class; it's worth it.
Get to know your professors; they're all pretty amazing.
Jessica from Petersburg, IL
Even though Greenville is a wonderful school and fitting for any student, I recommend making a visit to campus before applying or accepting. Visits are individualized, alleviating pressure from students and allowing them to fully experience Greenville. Students, along with their friends and family, are free to tour the campus with an admissions counselor, sit in on courses of interests, and eat lunch in the DC while accompanied by a current student. Additionally, prospective students can sign up for an overnight visit with a current student. I also suggest visiting on a Thursday for an overnight visit to attend Vespers, our student-led chapel. It is truly an invigorating and unforgettable experience. Taking the time to visit the campus allows students to find their place and feel that they belong. Once students know that Greenville is their home, they should start applying to as many scholarships as possible.
Maci from Elgin, IL
Go to chapel and Bible studies to further your walk with God and to grow spiritually.
TMB
Visit the campus. Go on tour days, make appointments with admissions for your own visit, or do both. Get a feel for the place and the people.
Katie from Pekin, IL
Do not worry about the cost of the school, because the financial aid department is fantastic and find you a ton of scholarships and grants.
Sarah from East Peoria, IL
Be ready to experience new and interesting things that you wouldn't anywhere else. Always be open to new things and look at things in a positive matter.
Mrs.Aloha from Honolulu, HI
Do your research! Greenville.edu the college's website will give you a lot of information but take advantage of college tours, student insights (part of the tour is lead by an actual student), and any other information. Look for scholarships! Although there are a lot of aspects to college life, don't forget that you are a student first.
Melanie from Harvard, IL
If you are looking to apply to any college or university - not just Greenville College - look into making contact with someone within the college prior to you applying! It not only shows your initiative, but it can also benefit you during the application process or when you just need a good reference!
