The 150-acre campus is easily conquered by a set of good sneakers. Grovers need approximately five minutes to walk from dorm to class. Students often walk into town for favorites like the Coffee Grove and the Guthrie. Venturing beyond Grove City Township? A bike might work, but keys become a necessity once students explore anything farther away than Wal-Mart.
Borrowing a friend's car is not uncommon, but failing to pay for gas and getting back to campus later than promised are two great ways to challenge/destroy a close friendship. Since nearly half of the student body lives in Pennsylvania, cars provide the most popular method of getting home. Carpool options travel word-of-mouth, via e-mail, or are posted on a "Ride Board" on the South end of the PLC. Aiming for the other side of the country? Students can get shuttled over to the Pittsburgh airport.
