3 College Senior

Health & Safety: The security on campus is not very reliable. But the campus is generally safe. Recently, security cameras have been installed at the entrances to all the main buildings. I have felt safe all four years of my time at Geneva.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Professors are friendly and genuinely care about their students. The majority of courses are excellent. There is a variety in the humanities courses. There is not a variety in language or technology. Most styles are lecture based. The class sizes typically don't go above 20 students.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The career center is excellent; helping with internships, resumes, and advice. There is a strong network connected to Pittsburgh. There are employers, mostly of religious organizations, that are available various days in the brig. There is a summer camp fair looking for student workers.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: Any dorm on campus allows for easy accessibility to anywhere on campus and eases campus life and community. Apartments have the least community but everyone is still friendly. Parts of the apartments are getting run down but they are fixing things little by little. The freshman dorms have the most community. On campus living is not worth the cost.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Geneva has a variety of favorite annual student events. The community at Geneva is excellent. If you reach out and get involved you can find lots of support and make lots of good connections that you can carry with you for the rest of your life. Professors and staff genuinely care about their students and there success.

2 College Senior

Athletics: There are so many events on campus that sports often get overlooked, except for football on Saturdays in the fall. Our sports teams are not very good in general. Every once in a while, some teams will have an outstanding year. A club called Superfans once existed but has recently died out. The athletes get an entire building they can utilize, but even that is not that great. The fitness center supplies the rest of the student body and has just about everything you could want in a gym but it's still small. You don't want to go there during busy hours.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: That I have heard of, there are not very many crimes that occur on campus. Students frequently feel comfortable leaving their things alone for a period of time while they go to the bathroom, or even if they go grab something to eat. Security vehicles are often present somewhere on campus during the day. Many new security cameras have recently been installed, moving to make the campus more aware of what is going on. I feel completely safe walking across campus by myself during most hours of the day. Geneva works closely with the police and fire departments to ensure a safe and welcoming environment.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I do not have much experience dealing with the alumni network, but I often hear of different events that they hold and take interest in in campus. There are many different opportunities to attend job fairs, which enables students to look for prospective jobs and internships in school, as well as after graduation. The career centers and services are said to be extremely beneficial and helpful. Receiving a degree from Geneva can assist in the future, as the college does the best it can to prepare students for any future possibilities.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Many of the courses require hard work. Good grades are not extremely difficult to get, as long as you are willing to put the effort into striving for them. The majority of the professors truly care about you as a person, not just as another student. They are willing to help you in any way you need. They often are friendly and welcoming outside of the classroom. While there are a few more popular majors, Geneva tends to have a wide range of options for whatever a student may want to study. There are a even opportunities for students to create independent majors. The size of the classes for general studies are larger, since everyone on campus is required to take them. For most majors, once you get into your major classes, the class size starts to decrease.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Where I lived this year, I was able to quickly and easily become close to many of the other girls that lived on my floor. We have each other to spend time with and to keep each other accountable.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: My school does not necessarily excel greatly at sports, but there is definite support. Some sports have more watchers than others, but for the most part there are always people in the stands. Whether or not we win, the student body is supportive of the sports teams anyway.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school is truly a place where I feel that I belong. The community that occurs on campus, and with the surrounding neighborhood, is truly welcoming and inspirational. I cannot imagine being any other place.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professors go the extra mile with all of the classes I have completed so far. There are always positive and on time for our class. They value our input and our opinions as well.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have not had an internship but I have one coming up this year.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: There are always security officers on campus. There are also multiple places on campus to press for help.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The rooms are spacious and just like living in an apartment.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: It is a big campus but the classes make it feel like a small school. The teachers are caring and helpful.

5 College Junior

Athletics: There is lots of school spirit and always someone on the football fields practicing

4 College Freshman

Academics: Although it can get very stressful and is very different from High School curriculum, the work that the professors make us do is very helpful. They push us to do the best that we can so that we are better prepared for the future. They also incorporate faith into the academics which is phenomenal.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: We all are very accepting of one another. There is not as much judging on campus as there was in High School. People are very loving and willing to accept all they encounter with some acceptations.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Personally I have not seen any alcohol use on our campus. That is because if you are caught with it you are kicked out of the school. Therefore if someone was to do drugs or alcohol then they go off campus.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Our school has a low sexual assault rate, but it still has happened. There are points where I do feel uncomfortable, but most of the time I feel safe walking across campus by myself because we have emergency buttons all over and have security going around all the time. Also going with a group of friends makes it not as easy for something bad to happen.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I come from a small school so the smaller school campus is very comforting. The teachers are very intelligent and are very open to help their students. Each professor has their own unique was in which they teach and makes classes interesting, and want to make you learn more.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: This school prepares you the best of their ability to prepare you for a future career. Our school is very adamant about student success and are there to help you in your future. They want to make sure that once you get out of school that you have a job. Our school has a high job rate.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I absolutely love the girls on my floor and am so blessed by them. We are all unique in our own way, but live together so well. The rooms that we live in is okay, but it is not about the building it is about the people. Community is key when living together and we have an amazing flourishing community.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
