Grove City College Reviews
Grove City College has a remarkably kind and loving community. Everyone is ready and eager to get to know and support each other, especially the incoming freshman class. Over the last year I've really gotten the opportunity to be involved with several groups on campus being welcomed warmly and ecstatically into them. I've made some of the closest friends I've ever had and when I struggle I'm always supported and helped by not only my friends but the professors and faculty. It's a small campus but still lively and there's lots of things to do and groups to join. The bowling alley, student union, and rec centers make great places to hang out and have fun, or just as a place to study and going shopping in the town or making late night runs to Walmart and Sheetz is always an adventure. I love Grove City College and I can't wait to head back in the fall!
Grove City College is an incredible place. When I was looking for a college a had a list that Grove City checked every box for. It was small, private, and conservative-leaning. Despite this knowledge I never could have been prepared for the experience that I would have. The moment I walked on campus on move in day I knew I had made the right choice. The people were so welcoming and kind, the classes were interesting, the culture is very Christ-centered, and I felt like I found a home away from home.. I cannot say enough good things about Graove City. It has changed my life for the better. I also apologize if there are some errors in this paragraph, my computer kept acting up as I was typing this and wouldn't let me correct things. Thank you!
Interesting environment, definitely not for everyone. Very conservative, high pressure for perfection, performance based... Can be hard on one's mental state! Everyone IS very kind here though- students and professors. I always feel safe on campus. If you are not an athlete, I recommend getting involved in Greek Life. It is VERY different from "Public University Greek Life," and is more like a "club" than anything. It has its downsides, but overall is a great way to get to know new people and find a community.
