4 College Sophomore

Diversity: People make jokes about how white the campus is, but it is an old joke. If one really looked around the students body, you would find a number of different races. We are a Christian college so the people that chose to come here are aligned with some sort of Christian church. People of other faiths would not be interested in coming here. This school is famously one of the most conservative in the nation and we are proud of it. I think the campus chapter of College Democrats only has two or three members. In contrast, the College Republicans chapter is very large as are the two Libertarian groups.

3 College Student

Diversity: There is some diversity, but not much.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: There are very few diversity so i can't answer this question

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Grove City does not have as much diversity as other colleges although I think the treatment of minorities is better than other schools. The typical student is conservative with a strong religious background.

2 College Sophomore

Diversity: I'm all for racial diversity, but the Christian campus is not exactly accepting of sexual diversity.

If you're looking for a mosaic of racial diversity, religious faiths, sexual orientations, and political beliefs, you've got the wrong school. Over 50 percent of the student body comes from Pennsylvania, and an overwhelming majority comes from white, middle-class homes.

The handful of African Americans don't even account for one percent of the student body. Some students express dismay over the lack of diversity, and by all indications, accept and desire greater racial diversity. If the membership numbers of the College Democrats Club are any indication, Grove City College does not boast much political diversity either. However, a vocal group of Libertarians keeps up lively discussions with the conservative Republican majority.

Gay Pride
The student body, due to its strongly Judeo-Christian majority, considers homosexuality as immoral. Although there is no outright condemnation of the practice, it is generally looked down upon.
Political Activity
Historically, the campus is extremely conservative. Although the students are not particularly active in politics, they are all aware of them. Although there is a small libertarian following in the college and a minority of liberal supporters, generally the campus is conservative Republican.

Most Common Religions
The College is a broadly evangelical Christian institution. Many students make a strong profession of faith and are active in service organizations, local churches, and campus religious organizations as a demonstration of that faith.
