4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Both guys and girls are mostly modest in their dress and respectful towards professors.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Scholarships exist at a variety of levels, and the Honors program is wonderful.

College Freshman

Transportation: I have never used transportation except from friends. Many places for students to visit (Sheetz, BFC&T, etc.) are within easy walking distance.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I have many friends active in athletics at Geneva College. Everyone seems to enjoy what they do and the teammates they play with.

College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life does not officially exists at Geneva College.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Geneva seems to have a nice amount of diversity, but it is definitely not a defining characteristic of the school.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather in Beaver Falls jumps from cold and windy to hot and enjoyable, especially this year.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Although I do not have an internship yet, I do have a position with tech services on campus that gives me valuable career skills.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The computer science program at Geneva is small, but the courses are well-taught and manageable.

3 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Beaver Falls has seen better days, but the people living there are great.

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: I was told up front what visitation hours and other expectations would be when I researched the campus. Although some people think that the rules are too strict, the were not a surprise. It is a dry campus, which means no alcohol, and visitation hours in dorms are limited for opposite genders. These rules, however are enforced with clarity and grace, and are not intended to blindside students or ruin their college experience.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The majority of off-campus housing are school run community living or study abroad programs.

College Freshman

Parking: I have no personal experience parking on campus but my room mate never has trouble finding a place for her car.

5 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: The surrounding towns offer lots of things like pottery classes, highschool dram productions, sporting events and local markets. The people are friendly as well. Pittsburgh is about 45 minutes away if you like big cities, but the immediate surrounding area is small, so it depends on your preference.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The Campus Security are great - friendly when they are on their rounds, are an active part of campus without being overbearing, and are always close if they are needed. The health services are easy to get to, friendly, and non-judgemental - but if you need to see a Doctor for prescriptions and such, it will most likely be early in the morning.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The only issues I have found are the basic ones that come up any time 150 people try to live together for the first time and start the process of learning to respect each other and each other's space. The RAs on campus are fantastic about intentionally helping out, and some of the closest friends you meet will be on your hall. The matresses are comfortable, and the space is as adequate as you could expect a dorm to be. There are also ample bathrooms on each floor, and crowded morning bathrooms are never an issue.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Beaver Falls is basically cold and rainy for most of the school year. But It makes the semi-frequent warm days a wonderful break and a great time to take a break and go on a walk. If it gets too cold, classes will be canceled, and the dorms are well equipped with heating systems.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: As a non-sporty person, I have even enjoyed attending games - both varsity and intramural. The games are well attended and fun.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Most students heading in your direction are willing to offer a ride - or a ride to the airport for those flying. I have never heard of a student having difficulty getting home.

College Freshman

Greek Life: We don't really have Greek life on campus, to my knowledge.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: It's a dry campus, so the nightlife is mostly school sponsored activities and bonding with your friends - but people get super creative and find infinite ways to make their own fun on campus.

4 College Freshman

Majors: For a small christian college, I was very impressed with the range of majors offered.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The Engineering department is one of the largest on Campus - the faculty is great, knowledgeable but also approachable. To complete the degree in 4 years, students often take on 18 credit semesters, which is difficult, but definitely not impossible, given the numerous on campus resources.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Diversity Is something that is encourage here on campus, however the size of the student body makes true diversity difficult. Even so, there are clubs, events and organizations that help the student population learn about diversity and how to embrace it.

College Junior

Nightlife: There is no night life

Geneva calls itself a family. The encouragement members receive from their peers, professors, and the campus staff engenders a tight-knit campus community, intertwined with the Christian atmosphere that pervades the campus. The Geneva family includes every variety of student: lifelong church kids, nontraditionals with pasts, artsy kids, athletes, techies, video game junkies, religious dogmatists, preps, punks—they’re all here, side by side in the dining hall or helping each other with schoolwork. Professors are colleagues in learning, who cultivate personal relationships and strive for each student’s personal best.

Geneva College is a Christian institution affiliated with the Reformed Presbyterian Church, and that spurs some religiously influenced policies that rub students the wrong way, such as mandatory chapels and certain residential policies. However, overall, Geneva is a great place to live and grow academically, spiritually, and socially—and have a shot at the best four years of your life. The Geneva experience is as great as you make it. Get involved—join a club, participate in student activities, talk theology at BFCAT (Beaver Falls Coffee and Tea), get published in the student newspaper or literary magazine, continue a tradition, start a new one, serve downtown, or perform at MGN ("My Generation Night"). If you seek strong academics, spiritual growth, and vibrant community life, Geneva is seeking you.
