3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The quality and variety are both excellent. However, costs are high and many places close early.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Funding is extremely limited and cost of living is high. However, the tuition is reasonable and there are many job opportunities.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Like anywhere, the strictness is relative. I would say that things are not so heavily monitored here; however, if you get caught - with an unregistered guest, for example - the fines are quite high.

3 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Depending on your interests, you will either find a host of things to do in Geneva or very little. For those interested in International Affairs, it is a great place to be.

2 College Sophomore

Nightlife: Geneva is a pretty sleepy city with expensive drinks. However, there is a thriving scene of house parties, especially for those living outside of town proper.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: For the most part, the academics are excellent. Again, it is an all graduate institute, so there are only MA and PhD students. The interdisciplinary programs are by far the most popular and reputable, but the disciplinary departments are growing. Like anywhere, the quality of the faculty varies.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: My department is standard for workload at the Institute. We are the newest, which is both good and bad. There are still many kinks being worked out and the faculty is growing and (slowly) becoming more diverse. On the other hand, it also creates a dynamic and exciting atmosphere.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall, the institute is great. There are a wide variety of classes available and many excellent faculty.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school acts as a feed for many international organizations, so depending on the type of employment a student is looking for, it can create great career prospects.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: We don't have any sort of fraternities or sororities on campus.

College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: It is an all graduate institution, so the dating and social culture differs quite significantly from an undergrad college.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: The dining hall is priced fairly considering surrounding options and the quality is decent. However, they close quite early and are not open on weekends.

College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't live on campus, so I can only speak to the experiences of others. Most individuals I know find the housing good but over-regulated.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The housing market is definitely difficult. There is a shortage of apartments and rental costs are incredibly high.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: Geneva has two basic types of housing: the traditional halls, or the apartments. There are 4 traditional halls, split up into 2 for men and 2 for women. In these you get one room for two people and share bathrooms with either 1 other room or half the floor, depending on which building you choose. Laundry is free but you share the machines with the whole building. In the apartments 3-6 people share an apartment with 1-2 bedrooms (depending on the number of people), a bathroom, a kitchen, and a living area. Laundry is still free, and you get one washer and one dryer per floor.

4 College Junior

Facilities: There is an athletic building, an amazing library, and a student center conveniently located in the center of campus. There are always activities coming up, whether hosted by the college or by a student-run club or organization. Most students hang out with their friends in the dorms. The student center has areas for students to hang out, but these are mostly used for studying, group projects, tutoring, or other academic activities.

5 College Junior

Facilities: The best part of Geneva is the people. Whether you are talking about the faculty, the staff, the administration, or the students, the atmosphere at Geneva is one of community. Every professor I have had was knowledgeable in their area, wanted students to learn and grow, and understanding and willing to work with each students' unique situation.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are a fair number of choices, but only seniors or married couples are allowed to live off campus. The school will occasionally send out advertisements for off-campus housing though.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Everyone is very nice. There is always activities on campus so most people hang out at those, or hang out in each other's rooms. Every different style and appearance is represented to one degree or another pretty much. A fair number of people have boyfriends or girlfriends, but there are also a fair number who aren't interested in the dating scene at all.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: there should be more options

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: could be better. could be worse

3 College Junior

Majors: It is pretty typical. Nothing to write home about

3 College Junior

Majors: Pretty normal. I like it okay.

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.

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.
