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.
Review Your College
I love GCC's size, academics, and Christian atmosphere. It has been a remarkable place of learning and growing physically, mentally, socially and spiritually!
While academics are definitely emphasized over athletics, there are a good number of students who manage to excel at both. Varsity sports are not very well attended. Some of the varsity teams are very competitive in their division, others are not. There are just as many, if not more students involved in club and intramural sports. Whatever sport you may be interested in playing, Grove City has it. If not, it's surprisingly simple to start one!
