What is your overall opinion of this school?

Grove City College was the perfect choice for me to continue my studies. While it is a small campus home to a little over 2,000 students, I find that it creates a very close-knit community and creates many more opportunities to seek help from professors. The housing for girls is very clean and spacious, and the bathrooms are cleaned weekly and there are always plenty of showers accessible to the girls living on the halls. The food could use some variety at times, but I would say that it is generally good. The dining staff accommodates to all food allergies and needs. All campus facilities are clean and air conditioned, many buildings which were recently built in the last decade. The campus offers a multitude of extracurricular activities including varsity spots, IM sports, clubs, committees, arts, and Greek life. Grove City College is located in a small town, where everything is in walking distance. However, if you want to take a trip to the Grove City Outlets for more shopping and dining options, it is only a five minute drive up the road. The academics at Grove City are demanding, but the professors are more than willing to help and after all, you are dropping thousands of dollars into college just to get a mediocre education, Grove City College ensures that you get the best education your money can buy.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

GCC is a fantastic school with lots of opportunities allowing students to grow in their academic prowess and in their faith as well. Academics are rigorous and really teach students how to responsibly manage their time and stress while gaining tons of knowledge on various topics. I've found numerous interesting conversations and lessons in and out of the classroom and will remember them even after I graduate. Sports (varsity and intramural) are also very big on campus and allow for a number of phenomenal experiences as well. Although there are a few problems here and there when it comes to housing arrangements and food, they're very minor in the grand scheme of things.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I wouldn’t go anywhere else! This is a wonderful example of Christian community. Fellowship, mentorship, and trusting in God are all top priorities. When studying outside of class there are many opportunities to get help with anything you need at career services!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Grove City College is an excellent academic institution. The "rigorous academics" it's known for truly do prepare its students to immediately enter careers or graduate schools. The availability and character of the professors on campus is unmatched. However, the most important point of differentiation at Grove City is the community atmosphere. The students, faculty, and staff are what truly make this campus uniquely loving and motivating.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school to come and learn, they have a huge focus on academics. The rules are strict but are well thought out so there is very little messing around. The quality of the academics is very high. The professors really care about their students and are very involved. The sense of campus community is amazing, you feel cared for and like there are always people you can lean on. I love it here.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's an amazing, wonderful place, with a superior academic environment , but also kind and generous staff and students. I never fail to hear the college and it's employees praised from alumni, students, and professors from other colleges. It's a magnificent place to be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Fantastic academics. Beautiful campus. That's about all I can say positive about the school from my experience. Be sure you know what you're getting into. You're gonna be trapped in a bubble for 4 years with little no no freedom. The surrounding area doesn't have much to offer at all. I was always a very independent person. When I left high school and went to Grove City I felt like I took a step backwards in the way that I was treated by my superiors. You're treated like a child, with little freedom to make your own life decisions. You're forced to live on campus for your entire time in school, in a very overbearing and frankly almost fascist environment. When I was there, you literally had curfews to be back in the dormitory. This is all ironic considering Grove City College fashions itself "freedom's college." Very Christian - required chapel attendance. If you come from an independent background, didn't grow up in a bubble, and/or weren't home schooled, you'll feel like you just got thrown into a group of students who have an average maturity level about 5 years below you. Many people won't agree with this review, this was just my experience. I got through it, I survived and have a great, truly academically rigorous degree to show for it, but I did not enjoy my time there and practically kissed the ground outside of Grove City when I graduated. When it comes to employment after school - be aware Grove City does NOT participate in the grade inflation that seems rampant in most higher education. Most degrees, particularly STEM, you're gonna have to really work hard for a solid GPA. That being said, employers that know GCC will be eager to hire you regardless of your GPA. Employers that don't know GCC, you'll be up against people who went to XYZ state school, drank 6 nights a week, maybe cracked a textbook a couple times, and have 4.33 GPA. Good luck.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Grove City’s education is catered to incredibly self-motivated students. It’s where people who want to learn and seem to have it ‘together’ thrive. The academics are rigorous and stimulating, and leave no room for slack. The faculty is amazingly talented and supportive, yet expect the best from all students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I just started here as freshman and so far its been great. Everything is awesome right now including classes, baseball, and extracurricular activities. Grove City College has surprisingly exceeded my expectations so far and I am being serious! I have had no trouble getting things done and there really isn't anything to complain about. I am blessed to be able to go here.
