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

Go to the college & walk around for 5 minutes, take a look at the buildings & examine how you feel inside. Does this college have majors that center around your passions? Follow your heart.

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

Everyone knows the typical advice for choosing a college-- famous ratings publications, guidance counselors, and the panoply of books on the subject. This is just a start. Once you are focused on a school, getting in-depth information about it requires digging into the internet, because that is what the current college-going population uses to communicate. Use search engines extensively. Read blogs from students at the school. Find any unofficial, student-made forum or website. Look for websites by alumni, too. Keep in mind that students often use the internet when they have an axe to grind, so assume negative comments are exaggerated. However, there is much positive information to be found, and it is invaluable. Normal books will give you short, superficial quotes from a few students. The internet will give you an entire book's worth of information from hundreds of students. Doing this will save you from surprises once you arrive, and will help you throughout your college career. Your most unpleasant surprises about school are things you could never predict. Knowing about recent school controversies, titanic or insignificant, can help you know what you are getting into. Forewarned is forearmed. Your investigation must be thorough.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Some majors are overcrowded. For example, there were 40 students who needed to take COMP220 for their major, but only 30 seats in the class. They were all jammed into the class, but the number of the students reduced the quality of the class. This sort of thing is common across the science majors. Biology is particularly full.

Visit the college and talk to the actual students. Don't believe pamplets, tour guides, or admissions counselors.

Describe the students at your school.

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.

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

Make sure to pick a school with all majors you might be interested in; lots of students change majors during college. Make a list of the top most important things you want in a college before you begin the search; be sure to consult this list everytime a school comes up. use the princeton review website and college search, it was really helpful. Once you get to school, no matter what, determine to have a positive attitude about your college. Determine to make friends, go to all the freshman activities and enjoy them, try things you've never tried before, be friends with people outside of your major, work hard at your studies, have fun!

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

I wish I had known how academically rigorous it was going to be. I wish I had known about how much there was to be involved in on campus.

It is a demanding institution, that is described acurately as an authentically Christian college with rigorous academics at an amazing value.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who needs lots of scholarships and monetary funding should not attend this school, because it only offers one loan option through a local bank and accepts NO federal funding.

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

While the choice of which college to attend should be primarily a future oriented decision, the importance of the life lessons learned at college should not be underestimated. College serves as the foundation for learning to cope with life independent from parents; therefore, it is important to choose a college that is a safe and healthy environment for learning these essential skills. As friends from high school fade, remember that friends from college last a lifetime, so choose wisely what type of people you befriend. Do not be afraid to try new things-- college is a time for exploration. Take lots of different courses because you never know what might captivate you, and when you find something about which you are passionate, cling to it and give it your all. Make sure that you carefully research what your major will translate to in the 'real world.' A lot of times students form this ideal career in their heads only to get into the 'real world' and find it does not exist. Work hard, but play hard, too.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A very studious person who doesn't mind working really hard and not having much of a social life. A person who doesn't mind a small town atmosphere.

Describe the students at your school.

Students are GCC are probably some of the nicest, most kind-hearted people you'll ever meet, always willing to do whatever they can to make you feel welcome and to help you achieve--I've met some of my closest and best friends here!

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

Don't take everything at face value--dive into the exploration process and discover things for yourself! Visit schools you're interested in, talk to current students and professors, and learn about the campus and campus life. Most importantly, keep an open mind--that school that may be your last pick today could end up being the very place you spend the next four years of your life! College is a time of self-discovery--it's a time to find out who you are, what you believe, and what you want to do with the rest of your life. You're going to meet friends who will be with you for a lifetime. You're going to learn life skills that you'll carry with you forever. Who knows--you may even meet your future spouse! Keep an open mind about your options, try things out for yourself, and find a school that's going to challenge you and allow you to grow in every area of life, not just academically.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

The academics--GCC may be ridiculously difficult academically, but the education is totally worth it. I have been stretched intellectually and have grown to develop a lifelong desire for learning. I love the intellectually stimulating atmosphere that engulfs the entire campus, and I love being able to engage in a lively discussion or debate anywhere at any time. The professors are always challenging students to learn more, think more deeply, and search for better answers. The education I have received here is simply phenomenal!

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

Our school is unabashadly Christian. They are straightforward about their rules and values, and no student should be surprised when they come to Grove City.

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

Do your research. Stay overnight at the college. Think about how your particular school will help you get to where you want to be in life.
