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!

Grove City College's atmosphere is very unique. You can find a variety of students, but overall the student body is very committed to excellence in academics and every other realm of college life. The professors know their stuff and genuinely care about their students both academically and personally. Professors are exceptionally available and even the cafeteria workers are personable and get to know students on an individual level. It is very common to talk to students and professors alike when walking across campus. The residential, academic environment is intentional and seems restrictive to some, but there are innumerable organizations and clubs with which to be involved, and Grove City gives the most bang for your buck that I've seen anywhere. No other private school offers the learning opportunities, the exceptional career services office, the involvement potential, and the emphasis on faith and freedom, all at a public school cost. If you are looking for a school at which to party or slack off, this is not the school for you.

I love Grove City! Having had Dr. Graham in HUMA 101 and Dr Munsen in Civ Arts I definitely don't think that the classes are all easy but I have really enjoyed almost every class and most of the professors that I have had. The community on campus feels like a big family and people are always ready to help you out should you need it. I would definitely choose this school again. I couldn't imagine myself anywhere else.
