Where Grove City College thrives is in its community, especially in the individual academic departments. As an English Major, I experienced a community that truly became my family, and that will stay with me forever - as will the friends I made there. My classes were challenging and edifying and helped me grow as a person, and the relationships I created there were academically involved and emotionally invested.
This is a terrible institution. Many professors have only Theology degrees, no real-world experience, very narrow worldviews, and no teaching experience. The students are almost universally home-schooled or from small religious schools, they are openly hostile toward anyone unlike themselves (Catholics, racial minorities, LGBTQ+, Democrats, etc.), and they are comically sheltered. You will never be "Christian enough" or "conservative enough." Your professors will lecture against feminism, Catholicism, liberalism, and homosexuality. GCC graduates enter the work force never having met a black, gay, or Jewish person, and it shows in the way they view the world and treat others. I am a hiring manager at a Fortune 500 company, and would never hire a graduate of Grove City.
Grove City College is a fantastic college that is centered around Christ, with great academic and extracurricular opportunities. Any college will have its flaws, as does Grove City, but I am beyond proud of my school, all that it is and all that it strives to be.
I love the small, safe Christian environment. The college provides great academics and lots of opportunities. There are wonderful free counseling services and caring faculty. The only fault is that it can be a little sheltered as a largely homogeneous Christian school.

there is no guarantee you will find out what you want in your life within the next 4 years, if you don't that doesn't mean you got an F in life paths 101. here's some advice
1. try several different careers on for size, start early!
take as many different interships and elective classes as you can, anything that you might be interested in try it. no matter what mom and dad say or how unrealistic it is, when it comes down to it, the year after graduation mom and dad will not be driving in the car with you every morning on the way to the job that's "just a perfect fit for you" that you absolutely hate or just simply doesn't fulfill you. you are the only one you have to answer to at the end of the day.
2. choose something that will be able to support your after you're done. if you want to major in basket weaving, minor in entrepreneurship so you can set the prices of your own baskets, that way you can have that cruise to italy and send your kids to school in the same lifetime.
Students who have come to college to grow in their knowledge and understanding of the world and their specific role in it as Christians called to serve in individual careers in the world.
Socially awkard; Extremely difficult academically; Hard core judgemental conservatives; not open to new ideas; asshole security team
Christian environment, affordable price, rigorous academics.
I wish I had known how focused some students are on campus about finding their future "mate." The idea of a "ring by spring" is truer than I had realized.
Someone that is a dedicated and hard-working student that is willing to work hard and study long hours in order to succeed. However, one must be open and outgoing because everyone is very helpful and friendly. People attending this school should not be afraid to profess thier love of their religion or any of their other beliefs for other students at this school will not judge them. Overall, as long as someone is willing to put in hard work for good grades, this is the school for them.
The career placement services, rigor of classes, low acceptance rate, average athletic fitness level of students, participation in IM sports.
The most frusturating thing about Grove City College is the academic aspect. I am not considered to be a student that is blessed academically. Ihave my areas which I am smart and areas which im not so smart. I do not like how strong the emphasis is on academics, even though it can be good for some of the students. The students are pushed very hard to get the highest grades possible, which entails for the student to do work constantly.
Grove City College is more like a community than any other school I've ever visited. It is a place that is filled with awesome students, all of whom seem to be incredible people, that learn culturally, socially, and spiritually relevant subjects in classrooms from teachers who genuinely care about each of their students' progress and immediate future. I looked at many other colleges and universities, but this school was the only one that felt like a home.
The ability for me to learn about the Christian perspective of certain issues as well as the secular ones. I like this because it helps me to better develop my intellect.
a person looking for an event to go to or something to do on or off campus every evening should look else where. this is an academics focused institution and not alot goes on. the nearest small city is 30 minutes away, there is never anything going on in town so if you want to do anything off campus you MUST have a car. NOT a party school by any means
One of the key things that GCC is known for is the rigorous academics, and trust me they are rigorous. I am a Communications major and thus my work load is less than say a mechanical engineering major but it still keeps me busy. however whatever your major is it is always manageable and for the most part your professor is more than willing to help. The Academics also go beyond the class room for both students and professors alike. in my experience, my professors have always kept their office hours and have gone out of their way to discuss how the student is doing in some cases even treating the students to a cup of coffee. Students as well often discuss the topics that they discussed in class with each other in their free time.

Being a "Grover" is stereotypically synonymous with being very smart, and sometimes that leads to the assumption that everyone is a brainiac: all work and no play. That could not be farther from the truth. being held to such an academically high standard does mean that school work takes a priority, but it definitely does not mean we have no time for enjoyment and social interaction. Grovers find a great balance between scholarly pursuits and extracurricular activities. In fact Grove City has an excellent and thriving intramural program as well as numerous clubs and organizations that students can join, from fencing to swing dancing.
