I am on the process of applying to this college. I had an interview with the Administration Department Director/PDSO, it was a pleasant interview, she was very delightful, very kind and friendly. I had a whole bunch of problems about the application, the financial aid and the scholarships. The staffs answered all my questions very patiently. Grove City College has a very strong academic program as well as their faith in Christ. This school is the 1st on my college choices list. It is a great school!

A great place for Christian students! Grove City College is a special place where many students are involved in campus life and get a great education. Most students say they've grown significantly in their relationship with God during their time on campus. Engineering, education, sciences, Biblical studies, and music are some of the college's strongest majors. They don't offer nursing as a bachelor's degree, so some students have gone to other schools who want to pursue that. There are over 50 student clubs and organizations for students to join, and most students are involved in multiple groups! It's a pretty active campus with numerous activities offered every day on campus. IM sports are a big hit, especially for high school athletes who love their sport but decide not to play that sport on Varsity in college.
Great people who you can talk to whenever you want! All of the professors want to help you when you need it (and if they even get the chance). It is a tough school to get into so be sure to have a decent GPA above 3.0 and around 3.5. Not as big of a campus as most and is a private, non-denominational Christian college (that is loosely affiliated with the Presbyterian Church). They are very affordable but do not receive financial aid from the state. It is also one of the most beautiful campuses in America (especially during the spring and fall seasons). One of the best parts about Grove City is that most students have a 97% chance of getting a job within the first 6 months of graduation, and all of the internship fairs in the area come to them! The men and women at this college care about your success in the future!
