The anticipation for Fall Break is high, but students will have something to look forward to when they return to school next week. 

North Greenville University is hosting its 61st annual Miss NGU pageant Saturday, October 18, 2014. 

The contestants are required to go through five phases of competition. Each contestant will have to complete a private interview, compete in a physical fitness/sportswear competition, preform a unique talent, participate in an on-stage questionnaire, and model an evening gown. 

The winner will proceed to the Miss South Carolina Pageant where she will represent North Greenville University in June 2015. 

Kaylie Givens from Rocky Mount, N.C. won the pageant in 2013, as Miss NGU 2014. She will pass her crown to the winner of Miss NGU 2015. 

The competition will be at 7:30 p.m. in Turner Chapel. North Greenville students, faculty, and staff will receive free admission. Admission for all other students is $5.00. Ticket prices for non-students are $10.00 each.
