The restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic canceled North Greenville University's (NGU) in-person commencement ceremony in May. The Class of 2020 never envisioned their college or graduate work ending without pomp and circumstance.  The Class members were given an opportunity to pick-up their regalia and diploma at a Drive-Thru Pick-Up event and given three options to participate in a future commencement ceremony.

Bob Jones University 911 Steel Cross
On the nineteenth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, Bob Jones University commemorated the 2,977 lives lost on Sept. 11, 2001, with a display of American flags at the front of campus.

In addition, a replica of the World Trade Center Cross, one of the most recognizable symbols found in the wreckage of Ground Zero, was featured at the Wade Hampton entrance of Bob Jones University. The original steel girder, a 17-foot long crossbeam, became a source of hope to many in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. It is currently on display in the National September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York City.
