4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some dorms are better than others. It's mostly clean and the buildings are nice.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Almost everyone lives on campus. Very few people live off campus.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There's only a few places within walking distance, but once you go further away from campus, there are a lot more options.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Administration is respected by the students because they have your best interest in mind.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: No one really goes to Grove City to party, so there aren't really any options.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I mean, tuition is already low, so not many people receive financial aid their first year.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: There are definitely some items that we all know are good, and we plan on going to that cafeteria to get that one item.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Overall it is really a good place to live. The housing is good and close to everything.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: No off-campus housing available whatsoever. There are apartments which feel a bit more "off-campus" but are in fact still on the college campus. Not a bad thing at all though--the community it promotes here is amazing.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: We don't have "flex" like a lot of colleges do, so when you go somewhere else to eat, you're doing it on your own money. There's a great coffee shop, a decent pizza place and Chinese place, and a natural foods store within easy walking distance. You have essentially everything you need. Some of these places have some student discounts and specials available.

Administration: Very strict in terms of rules, especially drinking and intervisitation rules. But for a good reason. I've never had a problem with it.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Not tons of financial aid available, and they don't accept federal aid which is a bummer. But they work with you.

Party Scene: No party scene whatsoever, and you get some people complaining about that, but for the most part it's a positive thing for the campus community. If you want to find it, it can be found.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Not bad at all!! Some of the best dining hall food around. Lots of healthy options and vegan/vegetarian alternatives.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There is no off campus housing available. Unless you are a commuter or you are married.

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of local places deliver. They are great and give students a chance to not eat cafeteria food. Great prices too

3 College Freshman

Administration: There are some strict rules but some enforce them more than others. You can get away with things if you know how to go around people

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid office is very helpful, they are there to make the process as easy as possible

Party Scene: There are not parties, but if you want to find drinking you can find it if you look. It does exist but I do not think I would classify it as parties. More like people hanging out drinking.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is good and there is usually something you can find to enjoy. There are always healthy options and lots of variety.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is an excellent experience. The community is unbelievable and all of the people are so supportive and loving. The RAs are great: they really care about all the students and they try to get to know everyone on their halls.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not have any experience dealing with off-campus living.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I would not be the person to ask about off-campus dining because I have not left campus very often. From when I have gone, I can say that there a few good places to eat involving the local cuisine and then there are the famous names, like McDonalds and Little Caesars, to name a few.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The law enforcement is great and perfectly presented. The RA's do an excellent job keeping order on the halls on inter-visitation days and any other events that occur on the halls. The Campus Safety do a great job of keeping everything running smoothly on and around campus, whether it be at night or during the middle of classes.

College Freshman

Scholarships: The scholarship system is not bad but its not amazing. Since Grove City is one of two colleges in the nation that does not receive governmental funding, the scholarships come mostly from the alumni and gracious donors to the college. Thus, the choices are limited but definitely worth applying for.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Freshmen might be a little skeptical about the "Grove City family" lingo that they hear during orientation and opening convocation. However, by graduation, many undergrads admit that Grove City College is a second family. Like almost any real family, Grove City College has its unpopular rules, its rebels, its squabbles, and its quirks. But also like a real family, there's a bond-despite the blemishes. Not everyone is in love with their college family, but Grovers have no excuse to feel like just one of the crowd.

Some students complain their way through four years of killer academics, narrow-mindedness, and local boredom, but by the time most of them actually finish, they have enjoyed Grove City College, despite their gripes. In contrast, many students rave about the school right from the start. They thrive on the academic challenges, accept Christian values, and change the local atmosphere with their passionate desire to serve God and others. The popularity of activities like Orientation Board, Homecoming Committee, and tour guiding are sure signs that students love their school. Grovers, the mainstream and rebel alike, make life-changing connections here.
They become the happily-married, successful alumni who bring their kids to Homecoming for an extended family vacation or reunion.
