Grove City College's atmosphere is very unique. You can find a variety of students, but overall the student body is very committed to excellence in academics and every other realm of college life. The professors know their stuff and genuinely care about their students both academically and personally. Professors are exceptionally available and even the cafeteria workers are personable and get to know students on an individual level. It is very common to talk to students and professors alike when walking across campus. The residential, academic environment is intentional and seems restrictive to some, but there are innumerable organizations and clubs with which to be involved, and Grove City gives the most bang for your buck that I've seen anywhere. No other private school offers the learning opportunities, the exceptional career services office, the involvement potential, and the emphasis on faith and freedom, all at a public school cost. If you are looking for a school at which to party or slack off, this is not the school for you.
