    There are so many amazing people here. Hardly ever do I meet a mean person. The workload is hard, so that is sometimes not enjoyable, but I really like my major and classes, so that makes the hard work less painful. There are so many great activities and ministries to get involved in too that make life here so much better.

    Grove City College has a very safe and supportive environment that allows students to flourish. Drugs, alcohol, and crime are practically nonexistent, and the campus has a distinctly genuine Christian atmosphere. Chapel is offered twice a week, and there are many additional special chapels and speakers throughout the school year. Students also have the option of joining small groups or attending student-lead worship services. There are a wide array of on-campus activities, ranging from a huge selection of intramural sports to service and ministry opportunities to dances, concerts and other recreational events. The professors are extremely helpful and caring, and because of the small class sizes, many of them will know you by name. In my experience, the professors are excellent at keeping their scheduled office hours and are always willing to answer questions or discuss a topic or issue in which a student is particularly interested.

    The campus is beautiful and there are some great school sponsored activities. Apart from that there is not much to do. Grove City is very small. There is one coffee shop downtown and the outlets are nearby. As far as entertainment goes, the movie theater, The Guthrie, plays one movie a week. There is a drive in about 20 minutes away but is probably not open in the winter. There is no way to get to Pittsburgh if you don't have a car.

    I have met so many wonderful people at GCC whom I am honored and blessed to know. Without a doubt, my friends at school are the closest friends I have ever had, and for this I am extremely grateful. Despite the rigorous academic schedule and lack of free time, I would not want to go to any other school. It is a unique and wonderful place on earth.
