Joy Hall Recieves a Face Lift!

Greenville College has recently announced the renovation and addition to Joy Residence Hall scheduled to begin on May 24, 2011.

The largest and oldest male dorm on campus Joy Hall will soon be the most coveted place to live on campus. The additions to Joy include low flow toilets, new windows, and updated airflow units. The new construction will extend the residence hall to the East creating more common living space for students. The renovation of Joy Hall will not only update the amenities and improve student living, but enhance the appearance of the building.

Joy Hall has housed many football players throughout the years and for some it has been a badge of honor surviving camp while living on the fourth floor. With these new renovations players will be able to rest more comfortably in their own rooms.

When asked how does this affect the team Offensive Coordinator Robbie Shomaker said,
" There will only be positives from this renovation. Now the dorm that will house the majority of our players will be the newest and probably the nicest. It will be important for incoming students to deposit early so they will get a better chance of staying in Joy Hall."

Plan Your Visit Today!

The Greenville College Panthers are gearing up for a very important recruiting period. The coaching staff and players know that the on-campus visit is the most important part of understanding what Greenville is all about, and experiencing what it is like to be a Greenville Panther.

If you are interested in becoming part of a special tradition we invite you to come on one of our group visit dates. These visits will include spending the night in the dorms with a current player. This will help you see what it's really like to be a student here. You can also set up a individual day visit by speaking with your recruiting coach.

These visits are a great way to get to know the team and the coaching staff, as well as tour the campus and see the facilities.

Former Player of The Year Dom Kegel (Hunters, WA) said of his visit, "Going to a school far from home was a big decision, but when I visited and met the guys, it was evident to me that this is where I wanted to be."

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Today is the 25th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day. It is a day when we look back and remember one of the most important leaders during the Civil Rights movement in the 1960's. As a football program we understand and respect the sacrifices and advances made in those times that allow us the peace and prosperity that we have.

In the fall of 2009 the Greenville College Football team stopped at the Civil Rights Insitiute in Birmingham, AL. This trip had a profound effect on our team as a whole. Here is what some of the Panthers had to say about their experience:

Joel Deayon
Los Angeles, CA

"The civil rights exhibit just opened my eyes and made me want to strive to better myself as a student, and as a man! How could I waste the opportunities that I have now when people died for me to get here? I'm just very appreciative for what I am able to accomplish as an African American male."

Alex Holmes
Huntsville, AL

"Being from Alabama and going to the civil rights museum in I saw how much change has occurred through the short years, and how blacks and whites have been able to overcome the unbearable taste of segregation. There is still a lot as a society that we have to do, but through Christ anything and everything is possible."

Scott Schneider
Centralia, IL

"I was glad that we were able to go to the museum as a team. I think it was a good experience to see what people really went through to gain equality. If people had not had gone through what they did, we could not have this team today. It was against the law to even play with someone of the opposite race, and it seems so ignorant today, but it also shows how much the culture dictates what we believe."

Ordell Walker
Head Coach

"The non-violent movement of the civil rights struggle illustrated the power of the Sermon on the Mount. Jesus taught us to turn the other cheek to violence, to love your enemy and pray for those you persecuted you. Those people lived Jesus message and I benefit from their obedience. I wonder what would happen in this country if followers of Christ would actually do what He says by praying for our enemies in 2009?"

Greenville's Diverse Roster

At the start of the 2010 season the Greenville College Panther football team had the largest roster in the history of the program. The roster was a unique mixture of players from all over the country and all walks of life.

16 states were represented by players this season. From Florida to Hawaii, California to Indiana the best players in the country came to Greenville and won their second UMAC Championship.

This is not a new trend as Greenville has always been a haven for talented players who wanted a unique football experience.

In the past four years alone Greenville has toted 1st Team All-Conference winners from Illinois, Washington, California, Alabama, Missouri, Oregon, Nebraska, and Florida.

The Panthers are searching the country looking for great players and great fits for the program.
