4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I love my classes and the professors in my department. I have had a few negative experiences with other professors but iIlove my department!!

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Getting a degree from this school and just being here is definitely a big plus. The name definitely carries a lot of weight.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Its pretty good! Sometimes a little too much of it to be honest. there are some rules that are a little on the stupid side.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I think a lot of the buildings are not up to code in terms of handicap accessibility and such. I tore my quad muscle in the fall and had a very difficult time getting to my room and out of my building.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: There are several sororities that I LOVE. But there are many that I'm not a huge fan of. It can sometimes be annoying but for the most part I don't mind it at all!

4 College Senior

Athletics: I love the athletics here, but some of the facilities could definitely be updated or changed.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: I was excited to attend my college at first but after spending time there, I found it to be a very demanding school and not nearly as affordable as I thought it would be. I am going to be a senior this year and am going to finish, but if I could do it all over again I would go to a school where I had more scholarships both academic and athletic.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Grove City is a school committed to Christ and His kingdom. Their goal is to serve and equip those who are training to go out into the work field, all to the glory of God. They recognize the need for healthy relationships and social time as well as rigorous study. It is a school that prodes itself on its long term relationships that last into old age.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My largest class size was about 90 for Physics 101. That is abnormal however as class size is usually about 30. There are no TA's for lectures and I've only had them for a lab and the professor was there too, so they were really just assisting the professor. The classes are perfect for me personally as I love the small class size and very limited TAs. As a Mech. Engineering major I can't really describe many of the courses on campus as most of my classes are required so I'll have 1 elective in 4 years :/ .

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The college has a very low crime rate and it is an extremely safe area. There are emergency boxes everywhere where if something did happen, or even if it is late and you don't feel safe, you can call and a campus safety officer will be there to help. I have been out at 2 am before and you really don't feel in danger at all. Mainly because the town falls asleep before midnight anyways but that's beside the point.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: All housing is on campus and the furthest walk I had to class was <5 minutes. I was in the newest dorm, Memorial, and it had the best housing on campus (besides the apartments which are technically on campus but at the edge and an additional cost). Not too much to say about housing except it is pretty straightforward, and as long as you don't room in Ketler, it'll be nice.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: As a football player, it is pretty difficult to rate other sports during the fall semester as nearly all my time is taken up by watching film, lifting, practicing, playing games,... oh yeah and a college workload on top of it. That being said, in my spring semester I noticed that while the varsity sports are attended moderately, club sports are very big. Always a basketball game being played between two teams. Frats, sororities, housing groups, and just people who get together to make a team. While I may have ranked this as only "it's ok", the club sports definitely help the athletics. Also there are plans for a new lifting center to be built on campus, and if it is open to all students and not just athletes, will be a great addition.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: As a Mechanical Engineering major after my first year, I have no complaints with the academic experience. The science and math teachers have been very engaging and open for questions to help us learn. I can't say too much about English and Liberal Arts teachers since I have not been in contact with many of them. For the school itself, it is very strict when it comes to un-christian like behavior. I have been most disappointed with the fact that boys and girls can only interact certain days of the week in their dormitories. I shouldn't have to kick a girl out of my room before 10 p.m. It really goes against the whole "Faith and Freedom Matters" that the school promotes. That being said, along with the academic program, I have found a very nice group of guys to room with in future years and plan to stay until I graduate. When I selected Grove City, Penn State was my number 2 pick by a very slim margin, so I feel if I knew what I know now, I think I would have selected PS behrend to attend as it had a very similar academic rigor, plus more freedom outside of class.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus Safety is present for the most part and I feel safer on campus than I would anywhere else.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Being with hall mates is the best part of living on campus. I also had awesome RAs who took amazing care of all the girls on my hall.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I think Greek life is pretty annoying, especially during pledge week, but I know people who are involved and they're still really nice individuals.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't really take part in the sports side of Grove City, but many people that I know really enjoy intramural and varsity sports.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Grove City College provides a solid community of believers that are passionate about both their majors and their faith. I feel at home there and would totally choose the school again if I could do it all over. We have our own traditions and quirks, but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. I know God has great things planned for me there and afterward.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The course schedule for each major is excellent. They choose all of the courses you would need for any graduate school or job, and they give enough electives for any additional classes you may need. The professors are professionals in their fields, so they are extremely educated and are always willing to do whatever it takes to help you succeed.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Over 95% of graduated are in a job or graduate program of their choice six months out of Grove City, which is really good. The career services office helps the students starting the first week of their freshman year up until graduation to help the students figure out their calling in life.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: On campus you never hear of people being assaulted or getting hurt. It is such a friendly environment, so it is a very safe campus.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Most of the dorms are outdated and old, so the furniture is not updated. Some of the rooms limit the ability to rearrange the furniture.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I am in a Greek group on campus. There are definitely stereotypes associated with each group, but it is a big community. If you aren't Greek, it isn't a big deal. I am still friends with plenty of people who are independent.

3 College Junior

Athletics: This school focuses mostly on academics, but the sports teams are still a part of campus life. As a student-athlete myself, I have found that I have time for both school and sports. Also, the facilities get the job done, but are not fantastic.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Grove City College has exceeded all of my expectations. The academics are rigorous, but I have learned so much and I feel very confident going into graduate school. All of my professors are experts in their field, but are all willing to go out of their way to see you succeed.

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.
