Grove City College boasts a central emphasis on the Christian life and worldview. The beautiful campus is enough to make any lover of beautiful historical architecture stand in awe and admiration. The professors are engaging, intelligent, and extremely accommodating. The food is superb! The students are thoughtful, responsible, and mature in most cases. In addition, the students for the most part prefer to engage one another in conversation rather than absorb themselves in their devices. Overall this College is the perfect place for someone who wants superb education, good friends, good food, and more, all for a very reasonable price.

I love the "small-town" feel of the college and of Grove City itself. At GCC, the student body more resembles the town Mayberry from the "Andy Griffith Show" than it does a rigorous academic institution. Yet, Grove City College is not lacking in stringent academics! The college's professors know how to push students to work hard and reach their full potential while not allowing them to become overwhelmed.
Grove City offers a broad range of majors from the liberal arts to laboratory sciences, engineering, and business. An academically rigorous Christian college, its career services office frequently ranks among the top 1% in the nation. Employers recruit at this college like few others. Its stunning campus was designed by the same firm that did Yale, Notre Dame, and Stanford. Students form rich relationships and are highly involved in campus life. Grove City doesn’t artificially inflate its price to an exorbitant level, like most schools, only to discount it with ego-stroking “scholarships” that are merely paper discounts. Why? Lots of students lose even though they think they too are getting a scholarship. Not at Grove City where its honest pricing model starts low and they offer need-based and merit-based aid. Known by employers for graduating highly competent students, Grove City starts its alumni on a holistically prosperous life journey.
