A Good Variety – There are two dining halls and one cafe on campus, so you do have options. The two dining halls have different hours and menus and you can look at the menus ahead of time online to decide where you'd rather eat. Bon Appetit, the food provider, is committed to using ingredients that are fresh, seasonal, free of antibiotics, free of growth hormones, and free of trans-fats, so the food is somewhat healthy. They are constantly adding things, such as a panini station, which was new this year. Salads, pasta, pizza, meat, and home-style dishes are always available. The dessert bar is the best!

A Lot of Work! I am an electrical engineering major and my workload is incredible. I am constantly busy with very little time to myself. I have talked to my friends that attended public state schools and I am more than twice as far into the books that we have in common. I know that this will prepare me very well for my career, however it is annoying to listen to all of my friends enjoy their free time while I am doing homework. Exams at this school are very difficult and do not be surprised if most of the averages are low/high C's. It is very difficult, if not impossible to obtain a 4.0 at Grove City college, while at state schools many of these are "given away" each semester.

Downtown Grove City is not very hopping but there are always food options. If you have a car you can drive about ten minutes and get to all of the fast food restaurants, drive 15 minutes and you are can go to the Outlet Malls (no sales tax on clothing in PA) and eat in the food court or hit up the sit down restaurants around there. Sun Gin's is a chinese restaurant downtown that is every college kids dream. They will deliver even into the wee hours. On occasion when a group of us have been downtown late at night the owner will let us come in and he will just whip you up some General Tso's, crab rangons, and some of those awesome sugar donuts! There is also a place called Sheetz. Because i'm from out of state I had never heard of Sheetz. It's amazing. Its mainly a gas station but the convenience store inside is open 24/7 and has touch screens so you can get made to order food. They have literally anything you could want. You can make shakes and smoothies too. It's awesome for a late night study session break.
