What Students Are Saying

4.27 Average Rating
GCC is a small and beautiful campus located in Grove City, PA, a similarly small, but charming, town. It has a close-knit student body family and the professors love getting to know their students personally. It has top-notch academics that will challenge you, but plenty of clubs, organizations, and intramural sports to blow off steam with.
Sophomore Grover
Grove City is serious about academics, so be ready to be challenged in that respect. Grove City also is fairly diverse; like any college campus it has its fair share of wild people who are in college just to have a good time. At Grove City, you will be challenged and you will grow over all four years; I've learned so much and I'm glad I chose Grove City.
