You should know from the start, Greenville College is different.
Greenville's pristine campus - located 45 miles from downtown St. Louis - was founded in 1892 with the intent to provide a distinctive, Christ-centered college education for men and women. Greenville College is a four-year accredited Christian liberal arts school and was the nation's first school to offer the Contemporary Christian Music (CCM) major. Greenville is home to student-run ventures like Blackroom Records label and WGRN radio, and is the only school with a student-run Christian music festival. Each year thousands of people attend AgapeFest to see acts like David Crowder Band, Skillet, Relient K, and Toby Mac.
