North Greenville University is working to ready the former Ryan’s Steakhouse corporate office building in Greer into the home for its graduate school and undergraduate online college.
NGU bought the 31,000-square-foot building and 10-acre property on Lancaster Avenue in March.
The building will house the school’s new physician assistant medicine master’s program, which will begin in January. The school will also move its existing graduate programs and its College of Adult Professional Studies programs into the facility, which is near Wade Hampton Boulevard and Poinsett Street.
Once the physician assistant program starts, it will join business, Christian ministry, education, health science and music education as the schools graduate offerings.
NGU spokesman LaVerne Howell called the facility a “game-changer” for the school.
