The school is very challenging. Professors are difficult but are very open to helping students. The Christian centered worldview creates an atmosphere of community and makes students feel that they are welcome and accepted.
The encouraging community and focus on studies is the best thing about Grove City College. The people I have been surrounded with take their studies seriously and it has boosted my GPA efficiently.
The buildings are close together for easy access and the professors truly care about their students and connect with them in personal ways.
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.

I absolutely adore the humanities at Grove. The liberal arts are my favorite part about this school. Almost every professor you encounter is warm and joyful. You are invited over for dinner at professors' houses, see the president of the college around town, and learn a wealth of information that stays with you way past your finals into grad school, your career, and your whole life.
Grove City is a life-sucking institution. The academics are “rigorous” in the sense that they require an obscene amount of work. If you think you can come here and have a social life outside of your classes and maybe one activity/group then you are wrong. Mental health and morale are very low here. The terribly cold and dark weather may be a factor in this though. The dining hall food gets worse by the year. The people are all white, conservative, and judgmental. Good luck if you don’t think Reagan was the greatest President in history.

Positives: the campus is pretty and the professors are generally helpful. Safest campus in all of PA probably because there is no drinking/drugs and there are limited visitation hours between genders.

Bottom line: the college will depress you and stress you out. But if you’re into Christianity you’ll probably find something interesting here. Campus is pretty, but that doesn’t stop you from wanting to run away 24/7 and never return.
I love it at Grove City. The welcoming atmosphere of the private Christian college is out of this world. Immediately you are greeted with welcoming arms and automatically have new friends. If you are struggling with different academics, the professors are more than happy to help you with what you are struggling with. Overall I would really recommend this college to anyone who is looking for a return on their investment in college and to acquire an outstanding education.
Amazing professors! I have close personal relationships with several. I'll go to their offices regularly, not simply for class help, though they are generous in providing that, but just to talk about life and interesting issues.
Along with being a great school to practice your Faith in, the music department is very modern, and professional looking, full of life, and pride. If you want to be a music major, I encourage you to take a look at this music department!
Grove city is a small school which makes it feel more at home. The professors are excellent and really prepare students for what’s the come next. They offer a lot of clubs and IM sports where there’s pretty much something for everyone
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.
While I am only going into my second year, I thoroughly enjoyed my freshman year at Grove City. The professors are fantastic and the classes are interesting and rewarding. It being a smaller campus heightens the experience, as students won't get so lost in the crowd compared to other larger campuses. Similar to high school, there will definitely be some sort of activity that you can get involved with that will help to transition and stay connected.
I love the fact that walking to class you could say hi to at least 5 people that you know. Other schools you’re lucky if you see one person you genuinely know on your commute to class. Everybody is so friendly and no matter who you are or what background you come from you will always fit in.
Grove City College has prepared me so well for my future profession while also providing an environment where excellent friendships and community are present. GCC professors take an active interest in the welfare of students, are immensely knowledgeable about their given fields of study, and are approachable. A kind student body exists at Grove City College, with students frequently greeting each other on the sidewalk, even if they are not acquainted. Attending Grove City College was one of the best decisions of my life.
As a Junior at Grove City College, I have been presented with many opportunities to succeed as a student and as a future professional. Independent research and a stellar placement program have aided me through real world experiences and the knowledge of how to impress future employers with hard work and an impressive resume.
It's an excellent college with great opportunities for students of all backgrounds! The food is good too!
I am the third sibling in my family to attend Grove City College and have been looking forward to attending for years. Throughout the years of visits, family events, and ceremonies for my older siblings, my appreciation for the college has only grown. In comparison to my current college (where I am transferring from), Grove City is a place where real learning, growth, and academic success are common.
Grove City is a very challenging school but they're also very good at preparing students for careers and graduate school. Great student culture, good professors, great student-to-teacher ratio, many opportunities for students to get involved in a wide variety of activities around a beautiful campus.

My college experience has been great! The classes are challenging but rewarding, the professors take time to make sure you understand the material and provide help if you don't. Residence life is welcoming and active and I feel right at home after just a few months. If I were to change anything, it would be the food options, the food isn't bad, there's just not a ton of variety. Other than that, all facilities are top notch.
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.
Small community and personal teaching make Grove City an optimal college choice. In addition friendly openminded learning environment Grove City's philosophy to spread light pervades throughout the alumni in the future.
