Take plenty of time to think about your decision. Choose a school that is especially strong in the subjects you may want to study.

Describe the students at your school.

Most of my classmates are academically focused and would rather spend the night studying than hanging out with their friends.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

It doesn't necessarily matter what college you choose. Pick one that you know you can survive at, and throw yourself into campus life. A great group of friends will make any college ideal. Getting good grades is important; you're at college to learn, but remember that learning occurs outside of the classroom as well. Get involved!

What's unique about your campus?

Definitley the academic quality. I've attended other colleges (George Mason and community college) and Grove City has by far the most helpful, friendly professors who are engaging within the classroom. They are glad to meet with you outside the classroom and although their exams are difficult, they are almost always a fair representation of what was taught in class.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

This school is smaller than many of the other schools that I considered (such as Wheaton College). This fact has had a large impact on my experience. Professors are able to invest in students more deeply than they would at a larger school--having students over for lunch, driving them to church, welcoming conversation during their office hours, etc. Also, Grove City has a strong focus on educating the whole person--not just the intellect. Classes are required that will impact the student's physical fitness, as well as their spiritual, emotional, and social well-being.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Before applying to and visiting different colleges, I made up a list of essentials in terms of what I wanted to find in a college. Ask yourself what you consider indispensible in a college experience--public or private, high or low academic focus, a football team, a specific major, a certain musical ensemble, etc. Know the things you can't live without, be committed to finding those things, and go from there. Past that, I would recommend that you follow your instincts. On paper, my top three choices seemed about the same. When I came to visit my school, I was able to get a good feel for what campus and community life was like. My heart said, "Yes, Julie, I can call this place home." So, I came.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Students who attend this school ought to be a very community focuse individual. This is a small school in which students and professors are able to deeply invest in one another. Those attending this school should also have a passion for learning due to the high academic standards that Grove City holds. Finally, students attending this school should have a passion to live a full and rewarding life. Grove City is a place where you can grow athletically, artistically, musically, etc.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

The most important thing about finding the right college is finding the right people. If you go to a college, looking only at its financial costs, academic rigors, and cultural oppourtunites, but don't find out what sort of people go there, you have made a big mistake. All of those things are very important, but what will really make or break your college experience are the people you will be spending those years with. These are the people you will be eating with, sleeping with, and spending counless hours studying with for the next four years. They will influence you for the good or lead you down a path you never wanted to go. Find a college full of people that you want to be like someday and then figure out the little details. And get ready to meet some of the greatest people of your life.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

A person who wants to come to school to party and drink. They will want out after two weeks.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

There are intervisitation rules that only allow girls in the boys dorms on weekends, which is annoying, but there are enough places to meet around campus, so it isn't unbearable. It is also in a small town, about an hour from Pittsburgh, so there aren't too many cultural oppourtunities.
