BJU Up Close is our feature visit event and the best time to visit! We’d love for you to join us for this two-day experience where you can see what life is like at BJU.

Not only will you get a wide overview of all BJU has to offer, but you can also get help with planning for college and beyond. Plus you can meet and spend time with your future professors. And you’ll get to experience Greenville’s amazing downtown. So come let us show you how BJU can prepare you for success.

High school students in 10-12 grade, transfer students and parents are invited to Up Close. Reserve your spot early since space is limited, and dates can fill up quickly.
