What used to be the Bank of America in Tigerville, S.C. is now the new North Greenville ROTC building. NGU's ROTC cadets used to travel back and forth to Furman University to attend meetings, classes and personal training. Now, thanks to donations from North Greenville supporters, the ROTC has made progress on starting a larger program at North Greenville. 

Both NGU and Furman students come together to celebrate the opening of the new ROTC building.

Randall Pannell states that the new ROTC building at North Greenville is in the right place on campus at the four way stop. He wants people to see not only the Christ-centered campus, but also what great things the program is doing.
