3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I have not eaten off-Campus

3 College Freshman

Administration: The campus has reasonable rules but are strict in the execution of these rules.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: When it is cold it is really annoying to walk to but there ate lots where you can get picked up without being in the cold for long.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The parties are fun, usually mostly dancing. It is definitely a positive experience.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: The dining halls have different hours so there is usually something open. The Stir-fry at hicks is normally really good but they also have a sandwich station if there is nothing else good.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are great. Our RA's and RD's really care about us. We have nice sized rooms, and the hall is friendly.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Area: Not a whole lot to do if you don't have a car.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: Depends on the meal and which location it is at.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The professors here truly care and are extremely knowledgeable. Best there are.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: GCC is given great respect in the job market and among graduate schools.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Our football program is abysmal.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: It all depends where you live. freshman girls have it great in renovated MAP north. Sophomore girls get the shaft with MEP, its old and gross. Junior girls get it better with newly renovated west and south (west suites are the best). Seniors can live on campus apartments (for an extra cost) which are super nice. Guys have it a lot worse than the girls. They're rooms are generally old and cramped.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: You have a dichotomy of students at GCC. You're either super preppy/stuck up/rich/usually into Greek life, or you're super nerdy/socially awkward.

2 College Junior

Diversity: There's not much diversity here. Everyone is pretty much Christian, white, and conservative.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The food is hit or miss. MAP has some weird ethnic dishes for dinner so I try to stay away from that. Hicks usually has decent food but is always ridiculously crowded. SAC dinners are only an option for me if everywhere else is gross and I don't feel like going off campus. Weekends are the worst because only Hicks is open...terrible.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The quality of education you receive from Grove City College is much better than any state school. I am learning so much more than any friends I know that go to any state schools. The only problem is that not many people have heard of GCC so I'm a little skeptical about how grad schools will react to a degree from this college.

4 College Junior

Academics: The workload can be completely overwhelming at times because each professor has high expectations. They will push you to do your best and then some. But you will leave here learning something, that much is for sure.

4 College Junior

Academics: I feel that the biology program is geared toward the medical field sometimes too much. Students that are pre-med have many class options, and many of the classes are geared toward medicine anyway. There aren't many options for those not interested in the medical field, however. There are very few environmental science courses for example. The quality of education is amazing and I am constantly challenged. The biology professors are great, and are always interested in getting to know their students. I never expected such one on one attention from my professors.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: it depends on who you get, what rules get enforced.

College Sophomore

Scholarships: I was not eligible for school sponsored scholarships.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I love my major and my department. I had to be accepted into my major as there are only so many spots available, they alert you to you acceptance and there was no additional paperwork or applications on my part.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The health center is a long walk for the girls.

2 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Unless you know the right people, you go to Slippery Rock.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't participate in Greek life.

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.
