    Great for these types of students

    It's a great place, period, but you definitely have a head start in some of the core courses if you come from a Christian background.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared to write a lot, especially for the core humanities courses. Also, be prepared to drive a little bit if you want to eat someplace besides Alex's, the Brig, or Pizza Joe's. In hindsight, I wish I had brought my car freshman year.

    Tips for prospective students

    Know exactly what you're looking for. Don't settle for a school that's not what you want.

    Bang for the buck

    Tuition only covers up to 17 credit hours, instead of 18. So, if you take more than the allowed 17, be ready to dish out about $800 per credit. Mealplan costs don't vary as much as the mealplans themselves vary.

    Am enjoying being here

    There are some of the most wonderful people I've met at Geneva! Unfortunately, aside from just haning out, there's not much to do except go to walmart.

    Am learning a lot

    The professors are all so nice and caring. They are very easy to get to know personally, thanks to small class size.

    Great for these types of students

    Geneva College is great for any student who wants to attend a small, Christian college and meet great people in the process. It is also great for those who may have come from a very small high school or homeschooling setting who are used to more individual attention from instructors. However, it is not a bad choice for those who are used to large institutions either.

    Tips for prospective students

    Living on campus, especially in the traditional dorm residence halls, gives an experience like nothing else. I recommend living in a residence hall on campus, you would be surprised at the close friendships that you make. Also, as far as academics go, if you find something difficult, go talk to your professor. They are there to help; and most of them are very helpful and truly enjoy helping you out one-on-one.

    Bang for the buck

    Private schools are expensive, but Geneva does give out a lot of financial aid and scholar awards. You will pay a lot to attend Geneva, but if you want to attend a college with people and professors who care about you while getting a good education, then Geneva is the place for you.

    Am enjoying being here

    The atmosphere on campus is very friendly and inviting. The college staff members and residence life staff members plan activities that are worth attending. The only downside is that the campus is located in a small town with little that is within walking distance.

    Am learning a lot

    I attended high school at a small private school where we did not have access to things such as computer labs, science labs, and individual academic advisers. At Geneva, I am pursuing an Engineering degree and have been able to learn hands on in the labs. Something else that has aided my in my learning experience is that the professors care about their students and are willing to help students inside the classroom and during non class times as well.

    Campus Safety

    Security is always doing rounds at night and the people here are non-violent and thoughtful.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many activities as well as clubs. There are plenty of bible studies that go on and support groups. There's also Ultimate Frisbee and many other fun things!

    Great for these types of students

    Geneva is great for believers in Christ but also for anyone who wants to be academically challenged.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Memorial Hall has a tree of tennis shoes for those who have dormed there for four years. There is a zombie apocalypse here. Chapel is attended every week.

    Bang for the buck

    For the most part, I would say that it's totally worth it! Sometimes it's hard to find something to do, but then again there is always something to do. It does seem quite expensive, and I won't deny that, but it's so much better than a public college. The professors are wonderful and you have great opportunities to make wonderful friends. Geneva really does give you an experience like no other.

    What to do for fun

    You can hang out with your friends, go to Pizza Joe's, play Ultimate Frisbee, check out some movies from the library, watch t.v. in the lounge, sit outside and read, walk to the park, visit other dorms, or jam to some music. Upper Room on Thursdays is also really great! You get to listen to really awesome music, hang out with your friends, and worship.

    Food and Dining

    The food isn't too bad. They have plenty of desserts and a generally good selection of options. You can choose to go to Alex's Dining Hall or the Brigadoon. Alex's generally has a better selection, but the Brig is a nice place to go to hang out or do work. Every once in a while there is a specialty meal night. This could be steak, chicken, and shrimp, or culturally unique foods.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is pretty nice. The rooms aren't too bad and the people are very easy to get along with. The R.A.'s are always open to talk and are there for you. Open hours are somewhat odd, but it's not too bad to get used to. It can get a little noisy when people get back on the weekend but there is a good atmosphere.

    Academic Rigor

    It all depends on how your schedule is and the classes you get. If you have all 8 a.m.'s and 18 credits, expect yourself to be tired. Always try to find time to study. Some classes have group study sessions. Take advantage of the time you have that is free.

    Tips for prospective students

    Look for as many scholarships as you can. Prepare yourself for your major and be ready for the amount of work that you may get. It's important to have time to study. You are also required to attend 11 chapels. It's important to try and get something out of these because the messages are important to your life.

    In three sentences

    Geneva College will academically challenge you. It also gives you many opportunities to find yourself and who you are in God. It's not always easy but there are many people here who are on your side.

    Hard working, passionate

    Bang for the buck

    It looks like a great college and offers a good amount of financial aid. The engineering program has ensured 100% of its students a job within six months of graduation.

    Will enjoy being here

    The college offers things to do on the weekends almost every week.

    Campus Safety

    there are emergency buttons all over campus - and ladies, if you ever don't want to walk by yourself, they'll even escort you back to your room. campus security is on call 24/7, just press a button or dial the emergency number. it's good to have, but i have never needed to use it.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    some students hike to the g (the high-ropes course on the hill behind geneva), others enjoy studying over a cup of coffee at beaver falls coffee & tea co. (owned by a geneva prof across the street!), and some like to get involved with the community by tutoring in the local after-school program tiger pause. there are plenty of fun campus events that allow for dressing up, too (like the president's ball, film fest, etc.), if you enjoy getting all snazzy.

    What to do for fun

    student activities does a good job of planning activities for those of us who don't go home on weekends. there's always intramural sports and varsity games to go to, but hey, sometimes chilling out on the couch with a movie and ordering pizza joe's (3 words - veggie supreme pizza) is all you wanna do. not to mention that pittsburgh is only a half hour away, and there is always something going on in the city!

    Food and Dining

    alex's is the traditional dining hall and it's not bad. it's really all in what you make of it - you can choose to eat healthy or not. if alex's closes while you're in class, you can go to the brig (the brigadoon) to eat - it's a relaxed, cafe-type environment. even if you're not there to eat, it's a good place to hang out or study (we also have 2 coffee shops within walking distance!).

    Dorm Life

    the sense of community in freshman residence halls is fantastic - the doors on the hall are almost always open! upperclassmen usually live in the apartments across the street, but i would recommend starting out in a freshman dorm so that you can build a good foundation of friends for your 4 years here. most of my good friends now are the ones who i met on my hall during freshman year.

    Academic Rigor

    i thought that, if i went to a school that valued faith in practice, academic rigor would be lacking. i've found that to be false at geneva - faith integration in the classroom & rigorous academics are equally important. i have spoken to alumni in my field (communication disorders) who have said that geneva's professors and coursework helped them to be more than prepared for grad school and the workforce.

    Tips for prospective students

    it doesn't hurt to get involved with as many leadership opportunities before college to prepare you. take your sat/acts seriously and score as highly as you can - they determine how much money you'll earn for academic scholarships for all 4 years you'll spend at geneva. take them more than once if you must, admissions takes your highest scores into consideration.

    In three sentences

    if you are looking for a christian college with rigorous academics, you can find it here at geneva. geneva is small enough to see familiar faces, but still large enough to make new friends. no matter what type of person you are - social, athletic, inquisitive - you will find a crowd here!

    Geneva's marching band is very impressive and they even use fireworks in their shows.

    Geneva is the home of the Golden Tornados. Their mascot's name is Turbo.

    Bang for the buck

    I was afraid of not being able to afford a private Christian college, but I recieved an amazing scholarship and now I am able to attend in the fall cheaper than a state school!

    What to do for fun

    There are a lot of nice little shops in Beaver Falls that you may not find elsewhere. Also, just minutes away is Buttermilk Falls, a beautiful park with an amazing waterfall that should definately be checked out!

    Food and Dining

    When I attended an open house at Geneva, there were many delicious food items for us to choose from.

    Academic Rigor

    I have heard many positive views about Geneva's engineering department.

    Tips for prospective students

    The campus has a beatiful view of the river. The hillside opposite of Geneva across the river has a giant G on it that students can even hike to.

    In three sentences

    I am very excited to begin my jouney at Geneva in the fall. I am able to live at home, and yet get a Christian college experience.

    The Rock is a large rock near the student center (the Senior class gift of 2010) painted to advertise for events on campus.

    Bang for the buck

    Geneva College is a private, Christian liberal-arts school, so it does cost more than many other colleges. But the faculty, staff, and students make the investment worthwhile.

    Attend plays put on the campus theater groups. Attend senior recitals. Attend basketball, football, soccer, baseball, softball games, etc.

    Academic Rigor

    Geneva is not the pinnacle of academic rigor, but all of the professors are knowledgeable and friendly with students.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not expect Geneva to be a party-school. Geneva students enjoy having fun, but the college is conservative overall.

    In three sentences

    Geneva College is a quiet, Christian, liberal-arts school in Beaver Falls. Students, faculty, and staff on campus are friendly. The local community provides many opportunities for students to serve.

    Campus Safety

    If anything happens, campus security is on the case immediately. They waste no time ensuring that all of the students, faculty and staff are safe, and they are very thorough about their work. Students even have the option of calling for a security escort if they have any reason to believe they are not safe walking across campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are so many clubs to get involved in, I don't even know what all of them are! The opportunities are endless. Also, there is always some kind of activity organized to participate in on (sometimes off) campus without being involved in any clubs. There is always something to do.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    In April, many students on Geneva's campus participate in the event Humans vs. Zombies. For a straight week they run around campus, humans with Nerf guns trying to avoid being tagged by and turned into a zombie, and zombies trying to avoid being shot by a human. Even if you are not playing, it is quite an entertaining sight to see.

    Bang for the buck

    In going to Geneva, you're getting a top of the line education that is well worth the cost. The professors are extremely knowledgeable in the subjects they teach, leaving students with a firm understanding of what they are taught. They are also very supportive and willing to help students reach their ultimate academic goals.

    What to do for fun

    There is a small waterfall down the road called Buttermilk Falls that is always fun to explore on a nice day. There is also a big G on the hillside behind the school that you can hike to. Below the Brigadoon is a room called The Underground where there is a ping pong table, a pool table, board games, a big screen TV, and couches to sit on if you just want to hang out with friends.

    Food and Dining

    The food in Alexander Dining Hall is all-you-can-eat style, so you can never say you will go hungry in college. The Brigadoon has great food as well, with the option of taking it out to your room or somewhere else on campus to eat.

    Dorm Life

    The community in the dorms is one of the best parts. The Resident Assistants and Discipleship Coordinators really try to reach out to each student and engage them in fun activities they prepare for the students in their halls. You will find you make some of your best friends in school in your own dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on what you study, some courses can be rather challenging while others can be a breeze. You will find yourself working hard for every class, but the knowledge it brings is a very noticeable outcome. Many of the professors make the classes very fun and interesting, so the work is well worth it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do an over-night stay with a current student on a weekday. Visit classes, talk with professors, and participate in campus activities outside of class to really get a feel for what life here is like.

    In three sentences

    Geneva College is the perfect school for students looking for an education completely centered around Christian values and application. The environment is very welcoming, comfortable and laid back. The faculty and staff genuinely care about the students here, not only in their education, but in their personal lives as well.

    Greek Life

    There was none on campus as far as I could tell.

    Clubs and Activities

    I wasn't involved too much with the clubs but they look pretty interesting.

    Great for these types of students

    Its great for students who are looking to grow closer to God and also for those who love being social.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Apparently if someone stays in the same dorm for all four years then they throw a pair of shoes up in a tree near that dorm. Also, not necessarily on campus but the coffee shop across the street from campus and the local Sheetz are places that students regularly go to.

    Bang for the buck

    Geneva College is definitely worth the money. The engineering program has had a 100% job placement after graduation and I hear that the business department is amazing!

    What to do for fun

    Geneva plans events throughout the months on campus in order to get students involved and interested.

    Food and Dining

    The food can be really good on campus. I've enjoyed numerous meals but there are times when it could be better.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life was amazing! I grew close to many people on campus and felt like I was part of a family!

    Academic Rigor

    I rate this as a 4 star because I had been in civil engineering as a major for my first year. The classes for the engineering majors are really demanding.

    Tips for prospective students

    Just make sure you study hard. Studying is an important part in earning good grades and keeping scholarships.

    In three sentences

    Geneva College is a great place to be. I enjoyed my first year there and realized that there is no other college I would have rather gone to. I grew close to so many people and enjoyed all that Geneva offers.

    What to do for fun

    There are always different events going on on campus. There is a zipline located behind one of the dorms, a room with exercise equipment to work out in, a track, and a music building where there are pianos to practice. There are concerts and places to shop all around the city also and the campus is about 45 minutes away from Pittsburgh.

    Food and Dining

    There are two places on campus to eat. The main dining hall, Alexander's Hall, has many different options; From a rotisserie section, to made to order pizza's and a salad bar, homemade desserts and ice cream, there's always something to find. The other option for campus dining is a small restaurant like cafe on the other end of campus called the Brigadoon which has The Riverview Cafe right next door if you're in the mood for coffee.

    Dorm Life

    If you are looking to live on campus, dorm life is very rewarding. There are separate dorms for boys and girls, and there are also separate apartments and rules which help to provide an easy going Christian environment. The students you meet in the dorms along with the resident assistants and resident directors are always there to help with whatever is needed and great friends can be made here.

    Academic Rigor

    Geneva College is a liberal arts college, which means that no matter what your major is, there are certain classes dealing with a variety of subjects that you are required to take. This allows for graduates of Geneva to be well rounded in most areas. There are challenging classes to every major, but the end result is rewarding.

    Tips for prospective students

    My tip for those looking into receiving their education from Geneva would be to find what it is they want from a school. If a closely knit school that feel's like family is what they're looking for then they'll definitely find it here. Whether living on campus or commuting, it is easy to be involved and to find a sense of belonging.

    In three sentences

    I would give Geneva College an 11 out of 10! The faculty is caring, the students are active, and it is a great place to receive a fabulous education. The best part about Geneva is that you can see how everyone on campus has a love for learning and for God.

    Campus Safety

    Cardkeys needed to enter any dorm with seperate lock combination on every seperate room door. Emergency help pillars located through out campus incase of emergency.

    Food and Dining

    Large variety of food choices. Enough food to keep you full. Actually tastes pretty good!

    Dorm Life

    The dorms have a great community life with events specifically set up to create a family type atmosphere. Very friendly and caring RDs and DCs.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are small which provides great oppurtunities for the professors to really get to know and assist students. As long as you keep up with the work, classes are challenging enough to keep interest without causing too much stress.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not let the rules scare you away. There may seem to be a lot, but it really is not that bad or strict.

    In three sentences

    Geneva College is one big family. They focus on connecting everyone not only with others on campus, but the community as well. They strongly believe in incorporating faith into learning.

    none.

    There are some cool clubs... and some weird clubs... but quite a few to choose from if you have the time.

    Great for these types of students

    Christian, wanting a decent education, or Christians, who feel they are rebellious, but compared to normal humans arent.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    No dancing on campus. Longboarding has just recently been made allowed.

    Bang for the buck

    The money doesnt seem to be going all back to the students. The campus buildings could definitely use a facelift.

    What to do for fun

    You make do with what you have. Pittsburgh is only a day trip away, there are flea markets close by, and a mall. A few movie theatres, but game nights with friends top all.

    Food and Dining

    Only 2 dining choices on campus. They make do, but they will have you wishing you could eat at home. Good cereal choice in Alex's, and the roast beef subs in the Brig are pretty good.

    Dorm Life

    The people can make or break your experience as it would be anywhere. The dorms are old, and need renovations. Cramped and not well thought through. Plus side is that although it is a Christian school there are still visiting hours, and you can come and go as you please with your student ID.

    Academic Rigor

    It's a lot of talk, but when it comes down to it, the classes are not all that hard, depending on your major of course.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be careful to choose your roommate, and if at all possible live in honors housing. Befriend your RA, or an RA, as they can be extremely helpful. Focus on your studies and don't get caught up in hanging out constantly. The best times, are the late night study sessions with your hallmates.

    In three sentences

    Depending on the people you meet, could be an extremely edifying Christian experience. A lot of opportunities for fun activities. Overpriced and run more like a greedy business than a Christian business.

    Campus Safety

    Campus safety was a huge deal for me since I am a girl. I always see security vehicles roaming around campus and stopping to talk with students. If something goes wrong on campus or there is too much snow, an alert is set out to that every student of faculty member gets an email or a text message.

    Clubs and Activities

    Geneva has intermural sports, rock climbing clubs and outdoor clubs while also enhancing the more academically gifted side of things. Geneva offers biology clubs and community service opportunities for students, along with short missions trips and on campus jobs.

    Great for these types of students

    Geneva is accredited for many majors like business, biology, engineering and music plus so many others. Geneva offers diversity for any one really. Eventually anyone can find the group of people that they feel the most comfortable with, but while on Geneva's campus student mix it up and change groups as well.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    A funny tradition on Geneva's campus is that if you are a Junior or Senior and you have been dating someone for a while the girl should have a nice ring on her left hand finger by spring. This tradition is called Ring by Spring. Geneva also does a game in the spring called Zombies and Humans, where people run around all of finals week attacking each other with nerf guns.

    Bang for the buck

    While Geneva has a lot to offer, they could improve with updating their systems and buildings. They could also cut back on certain things in order to expand the campus in necessary means. Geneva could do a better job with finding ways to cut back tuition but still give a quality education to students who accept the challenge.

    What to do for fun

    Geneva offers on campus activities like film fest in october, the black and white in the winter and then a campus wide talent show at the end of the year. Geneva also puts together road trips and athletic rallies. another locational perk for Geneva is that it is only 30 minutes from Pittsburg.

    Food and Dining

    The food at Geneva has a lot to offer. My group of friends especially liked the dessert bar and ice cream area.Although this is the case, Alexander Dining Hall could improve with more ways to prepare food and present a wider variety for the regulars.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life at Geneva is awesome. If you leave your door open you will get nothing done and chances are that there will be others from your floor in your room. There is a strong sense of community throughout the entire campus, but especially in each hall.

    Academic Rigor

    Geneva professors do a great job to make relationships outside of the classroom with their students. But they can only do so much if the student doesn't take hold of the opportunity. Geneva pushes their students at different levels depending on the difference of the individual.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get out and experience what college life has to offer you. Apply yourself academically, don't just wait until the second semester. Start as soon as you get onto campus.

    Campus Safety

    It may be in Beaver Falls, but campus is safe. Be wary of weirdos, though. There have been incidents, about one per year. If you don't do anything stupid, like walking alone on the train tracks (which is illegal, just saying) after dark, don't be surprised if you get stalked.

    Greek Life

    None to speak of. We don't have frats or sororities, but we do have the Academic honors societies in a bunch of disciplines.

    Clubs and Activities

    AWESOME!!! History club is the best. Then again, I'm a little biased. The Chem club exploded pumpkins for Halloween, though. There are tons of clubs, academic and otherwise, and if you get connected with one of these, it's pretty sweet.

    Great for these types of students

    People who are interested in a holistic education- one that rounds you spiritually and communally as well as educationally.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The guys in Memorial Hall throw a pair of their shoes into one of the trees if they live in Memorial all four years. Also, there's this group of people who play dagohir (a kind of medieval fighting with foam weapons) when the weather is nice out on Memorial lawn. It's not too unusual to see people randomly dressed up and running around campus as some movie or TV show character. Gandalf has been seen outside of Clarke, trying to prevent perspectives from passing, the Ghostbusters removed several ghosts from campus, an oversized dog played fetch with willing students, the Power Rangers came to visit my dorm, etc.

    Bang for the buck

    SO expensive, but I think it's totally worth it. If you're looking for the college experience, but also want a Christian college

    What to do for fun

    If you can, make friends with someone with a car. You have a lot more to do. If you stay on campus, your limits are your imagination. Get involved in a club. The college hosts free events (like My Generation Night), and every Friday night a church in walking distance hosts swing dancing- all evening for $1. If you have time, volunteer for events- you get free t-shirts (sometimes food too!) and sometimes can get admission to amazing concerts. Geneva also has events that charge- Film Fest (the big semi-formal), Mystery Bus Trip (which is fantastic. Do it at least once). The library also has a nice collection of movies, a lot of which are fairly recent, so if you're looking for a night in, check out their collection.

    Food and Dining

    Alex's is not the best. The Brig is sightly better. Desert is always, always amazing, though.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are fantastic! They tend to be a community within the greater Geneva community, and you can make awesome and lasting friendships. There are plenty of dorm events- both within a single dorm and between dorms, so you get to meet the larger Geneva community. Some people don't like the rules regarding visitations, but they're really not too bad, all things considered.

    Academic Rigor

    The professors are interested in seeing you succeed. They care about what they do, and they care about the students. Get to know your adviser, they're the ones who help you with everything during your time at Geneva. The class work varies from class to class, but it's designed to make you think and strive to achieve. Geneva's a teaching college, not a research college, so it's designed to give you the best education you can get.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't eat the fish in Alexander Dining hall, it tastes like cardboard. Get involved in on campus events if at all possible, and stay on campus one night while going through the admissions process. There are tons of great activities, but you have to be alert and willing to go to them.

    In three sentences

    A Christ-centered, academic driven community. Everything ties back to the Reformed Presbyterian tradition and the beliefs held, which makes some people very unhappy. The academics are fabulous, though, and the community is very loving.

    Campus Safety

    If someone wanted to do harm to you, that one campus guard that drives around will not be an obstacle for the person intending you harm. One star because the door to your building only opens with a school ID (which is not hard to obtain) and your dorm room has a key pad on it.

    Greek Life

    Greek life? Must not have one at this campus because it is unheard of.

    Clubs and Activities

    Many clubs and activities. If you want a party club do not come here.

    Great for these types of students

    Christians, afraid of opposite sex, treated like a child.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    School holds a film festival once a year. Make a short video and send it in to see if it is good enough to been seen by the whole campus.

    Bang for the buck

    Campus provides a hang out place where you can buy food and drinks. Its expensive.

    What to do for fun

    Almost nothing. You must go off campus for fun.

    Food and Dining

    Average, but some days it is below.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is kind of boring because of the rules.

    Academic Rigor

    If you want the A you must work for it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Prepare for strict rules.

    In three sentences

    Strict on rules. Students are friendly. Cost of school is high.

    Walk to sheetz or go to Walmart.

    Below average options and quality.

    Dorm Life

    The brotherhood here is amazing and everyone gets along.

    Academic Rigor

    It is a challenging curriculum, but you learn a lot and are better for it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared to not be able to partake in partying. There is not much to do around campus, so know that.

    In three sentences

    It is a great small college for people looking for a Reformed Presbyterian education. It is secluded and has an excellent atmosphere for learning. Unfortunately, Geneva is also known for being strict and the furthest thing from a party school.

    Greek Life

    None. (There's plenty else to do I really don't miss it at all.)

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    one cool tradition is Humans vs. Zombies, a week-long game students play every year in April. It makes the campus a little more interesting and wacky as students wearing orange bandannas chase each other around with nerf guns.

    Bang for the buck

    Geneva's tuition is fairly cheap as private colleges go. Also, they offer several scholarships that you get automatically if your GPA and test scores are up to a certain level, with different scholarships requiring different levels.

    What to do for fun

    There are events going on pretty much every weekend. Also, there are lounges in each dorm building and another lounge in the student center where you can hang out with friends when it's not open hours. Open hours are the times when you can bring members of the opposite gender into your room, and they are scheduled for several hours on several different days, mostly over the weekend. While the town of Beaver Falls doesn't have a ton of things to do, there are some nifty little shops, and if you have a car Pittsburgh is only like a 30 minute drive or so.

    Food and Dining

    Everyone knows that college cafeteria food is usually bad, but in spite of the way people complain, Geneva's food is really way above average. There are two different cafeterias, and they will work with you if you have allergies or food intolerances (trust me I'm in that category).

    Dorm Life

    The RAs and RDs are all very nice people and encourage you to get to know the other people in your dorm by planning activities and hanging out with you.

    Academic Rigor

    Geneva is a very good school academically. The professors are very nice, but they expect you to do your share of the work and push you to excel and do your very best. However there is an office you can go to if you have a disorder/disability and are in need of assistance and accommodation.

    Tips for prospective students

    Go visit Geneva College! You cannot know how nice and welcoming everyone is until you go and see it for yourself.

    In three sentences

    Geneva College is an amazing school! Everyone is so nice and friendly. I was welcomed immediately by so many kind people.

    What to do for fun

    There is not a whole lot around the school. You have to drive to Chippewa to get to stores. But around campus there is Pizza Joe's, This and That, Beaver Falls Coffee and Tea Shop and Sheetz which are some of the few places people go to have fun or hang out.

    Food and Dining

    The food is not terrible but it not always the best. The people that work in the dining hall are so friendly and they get to know you. It is an all you can eat kind of thing and you can keep getting as much food as you want.

    Dorm Life

    It is a great way to make a lot new friends, especially if you keep your door open. Some of the rooms might be small and run downish but you get used to it and learn how to manage. You can always have friends over, of the same gender, and you can have guys over but you have to be in the lounge unless it's open hours.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are an average difficulty. There will be some that are easier or harder than others. You will have a lot of work to do for your classes, so do not put it off and wait until the night before it's due to complete it.

    Tips for prospective students

    Go to class and do your homework. If need help, ask for it because people will help you. Do not wait until the last minute to do everything.

    In three sentences

    It is a fantastic, Christian school. All the faculty and staff here are so helpful and caring. The classes are average and if you ever need help, there are plenty of people willing to help.

    They'll throw money at you.

    Awesome food.

    Academic Rigor

    From what I've researched, they've got awesome professors who are willing to help with anything.

    Tips for prospective students

    Contact the school, you can most likely receive a fee-waiver. Make sure to do early admit as well.

    In three sentences

    Amazing school from what I've seen, I got my acceptance letter and then a grant worth $30,000! Super exciting to compare Geneva to other schools.

    Campus Safety

    Locked down tight. Very safe. One of the things I am most happy about. Always secure, security always around, and dorms locked so only students and those who work for Geneva can get in or let people in. I feel safer here than at home.

    Clubs and Activities

    Community service, sports, mentorships, academic, the list goes on for days. You want it, it is here. If not, you are allowed to make a club.

    Great for these types of students

    Looking for a strong education, Christian, and a fun time in college.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The brig and skye are hangout places for students, and then there are all kinds of offices available for you in the student center made for easy access when you want to get something done.

    Bang for the buck

    Perfect! We even got some sort of award associated to this. The education you get for your price is 100% worth it. It definitely is worth the price.

    What to do for fun

    Intramurrals, Clubs, Band, Theatre, work, sports events, get off campus in nearby cities, go see a movie, play a pickup basketball game, listen to an influential speaker, longboard, climb trees, joust, play dorm hall soccer, Netflix, go for a run, go to fitness center, go to game nights, play games in your room, have a movie night in your room, order a pizza, go on a date, go bowling, or swimming, go to wal-mart and make it onto people of wal-mart

    Food and Dining

    Lots of options, but after a little bit they will get old. Their are 2 places on campus where you can use your meal plan. One serves good food, and the other has lots of options, and you will be able to find something that you like at any time. Eating there eventually gets old, and you crave a burger from somewhere fast food, but you eventually get used to it, and learn how to eat the good food and what to avoid. If you learn the science to it that is easy to learn, you can have a wonderful food experience.

    Dorm Life

    They can be dirty sometimes, but they are cleaned weekly. Not much to them if you are not in the traditional halls, but many things to do when you are, like ping pong, tv, etc.

    Academic Rigor

    You will get the education you are looking for. It is a Christian college, so they speak their faith in the classroom, but the academics are unbeatable. Ask about placement rates, and percentage of how well students do on graduation and graduate tests, because you will be surprised about what they are for your major. Biology will set you far above other grad students for medical type jobs and other, graduate type degrees, making you feel as far as a year ahead.

    Tips for prospective students

    Visit. There is only a ten minute walk across campus at the most, and it is very nice. Look into your major, and ask lots of questions about it. Engineering and Accounting both have 100% job placement, so definitely ask questions about the other majors too, because many are high as well.

    In three sentences

    Great home away from home feel; the community is outstanding, and you will get to know many different people. There is only 1400 undergraduate students, so it is nice and small. You get the academics you are looking for, with high job placement rates and a career development office that knows what they are doing, chances are you will have a job or be in grad school when you are done.
