About Greenville University

Greenville University transforms lives.

Your life will change when you get here. For the better. For a life of character and service. For Christ.

We are a four-year, Christian college that provides a quality liberal arts education for over 1600 traditional, adult degree-completion and graduate students. We were founded in 1892 in Greenville, Illinois — about 45 miles outside of St. Louis — and are affiliated with the Free Methodist Church.

But what makes Greenville University truly different is its amazing community of students, professors and staff. The stories, music, laughter and work our community creates is top-notch. The experiences you will have here will change your life.
