Use the links at the right to find out about your residence hall, where you'll eat, and what's going to take place during New Student Orientation. We've also listed out all of the documents and forms you'll need when you get here. And as always, if you have any questions, give us a call or shoot us an email!

In response to this issue, Greenville College has adopted policy that prohibits file sharing of data objects of which you do not have rights as determined by copyright law.
This includes transfer of files using popular peer-to-peer applications such as BitTorrent, Kazaa, Morpheus, eDonkey, etc., or by open shares on the campus network. The campus "Appropriate Use" policy covers this issue and may be read in its entirety on our Help Desk website.
Our Campus Activities Board works hard each year to organize campus events including movie nights, Coffeehouse open mics, barbeques on Scott Field, and a few surprises. Watch for signs around campus and check PantherNet for details.
Athletic events are scheduled for most weekends as well.
The Greenville College Counseling Offices are located on the first floor of the Ruby E. Dare Library [building number 36 on your campus map], and services students who are currently enrolled and attending classes on campus. The center provides a broad range of mental health services and referrals. Appointments can be made in person or by contacting the Counseling Office at ext. 6618 or 6810 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com
There are two counselors available to see students - Nancy Gaines and George Smith.
If students are uncertain whether counseling is what they would like, introductory appointments may help them decide. The decision to seek counseling is always up to the individual. Counseling sessions and their content are confidential, consistent with the legal and ethical obligations of the counselor. There is no charge for any of the counseling services provided.
With the proliferation of cell phones, Greenville College does not provide phone access in individual dorm rooms. Campus phones are available in public areas on each dorm floor and in lounges. One campus phone is also provided for every campus house.
Be sure to see our HelpDesk staff at the Welcome Tent when you arrive for the fall semester! They will provide you with your unique network login information, campus mailbox and phone information, and a instructions to help you connect to the network. All students will be required to register their computers online in order to gain access. Computer systems must have antivirus software installed, be virus-free, and up to date with all Windows security patches.

If you're registered for COR 101, your COR 101 instructor will be your academic advisor during the Fall semester. (See the label on your NSO packet if you don’t know which COR class you are placed in.)
Freshmen who declare a major in the Fall will be assigned an academic advisor from their major department in the Spring. Freshmen who remain undecided will continue to be advised by their COR 101 instructor until a major is declared.
Transfer students who have declared a major will be advised by a faculty member from the department of their chosen major. Undeclared transfer students will be assigned an advisor by the Records Office [located on the main level of Marston Hall, building 33 on your campus map.]
In addition to language, mathematics, and music placement tests, new students take part in institutional research and assessment. This process provides feedback to the College on how well it carries out the mission to shape students for lives of character and service.
New students are tested on social orientation, academic and personal motivation, values, and attitudes that influence them as they enter college life. When they are seniors, students complete similar tests to determine what may have changed during their college career.
These measurements assist the Higher Learning Commission in their determination to renew accreditation to Greenville College.
