The city of Greenville, Illinois, with a modest population near 7,000 residents, offers a unique student living experience to the undergraduates who enroll for study at Greenville College. The town's small size creates a cozy community around the campus and much of its off campus housing, which is positioned in the northwestern corner of the downtown area. The college, a four-year liberal arts institution, was founded in 1855 as an all-female Baptist School, and has since become affiliated with the Free Methodist Church.
Today, more than 1,100 young scholars live in Greenville College student housing, after enrollment spiked over the past several years, exceeding 1,000 for the first time in 2006. Though the school's history spans more than 150 years, interest in student living remains high, and the college continues to grow.
To complement their experience at the school, some students rent a college apartment, compelling them to more fully engage with the community that supports Greenville College. Near the campus, those with a student apartment can easily reach the Globe Theater, Greenville Public Library and Mario's Pizza. In addition, the city of Greenville is home to the only museum dedicated to the works of Richard Bock, a sculptor who worked with Frank Lloyd Wright, and historic monuments where Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas delivered speeches while running for the U.S. Senate.
