Empower to Lead

Empower students to lead.
Create spaces where they grow.

More than bricks and mortar, buildings facilitate learning, fellowship, practice, discipleship, mentoring, servant leadership, and more. 


GU is that Anchor

In a world of the instantaneous, we need an anchor that holds our Christian worldview in place. Just as it was for us as students, Greenville University is that anchor for the next generation of Christian leaders. That is why we give to GU.

Creating inviting environments

Develop appealing spaces where students practice servant leadership and grow in intellect and faith.

New Residence Hall

We've filled residence halls when enrollment at other universities plummeted. Today, as our enrollment continues to soar, we embrace a visionary solution: a new four-story, 40,000 square-foot residence hall on College Avenue. This transformative building will be home to 246 students, fostering a vibrant community and fellowship.

W. Richard Stephens Field House and Robert "Ish" Museum

The new sports venue honors the legacy of the late Robert "Ish" Smith, former GU president and baseball coach, and GU President Emeritus W. Richard Stephens, who was instrumental in starting the Panther Football program in 1987. The new sports venue will be equipped with a grandstand, press box, locker rooms, restrooms, and expanded capacity to host collegiate, high school, and regional events.

Forever Transformed, Forever Grateful

GU is where I learned to develop a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and set a [firm] foundation. It's where my life changed forever. I'm forever grateful.
