The only parties I've been to at Grove City College were dances, and they were wonderful. The atmosphere was very pleasant and the dances were incredibly fun. There are ballroom and swing dance clubs on campus, so everyone really knew what they were doing, and that made the dances even better!

The best dances I've been to so far were put on by the school and took place right on campus, either in Breen Student Union or the PLC.

The parties definitely have a positive impact on the student experience, they bring everyone together for excitement and fun but in an environment where the students are very respectful of each other and there is no alcohol or inappropriate behavior present.

The food is not that great. Bon Appetit (the company that provides the dining options) has its good days, but mostly not that great and occasionally borderline horrific. I have heard that the food has been better in past years and is just declining in quality. Bon Appetit loves to post signs and talk about how wonderful, organic, local, and "cage free/free range" their food is, but quite frankly, it just isn't all that great as a whole. Sherry runs a great omelet station for breakfast in MAP that is hugely popular (get there early to get in line!) and the crepe station is also a big hit. The pork is usually good as well. The Geedunk (in the student union) has a nice dining option that can be used with a meal credit (you can bag up the food and take it anywhere with you) but the options are limited and get old after awhile. If you want really good food, go to the Food Feedback Forums that are every other week. They are put on by Bon Appetit and the Student Government Association and there is always really good food, proving that Bon Appetit CAN make really good food when they want to!

While academics are definitely emphasized over athletics, there are a good number of students who manage to excel at both. Varsity sports are not very well attended. Some of the varsity teams are very competitive in their division, others are not. There are just as many, if not more students involved in club and intramural sports. Whatever sport you may be interested in playing, Grove City has it. If not, it's surprisingly simple to start one!
