What Students Are Saying

4.27 Average Rating
Get ready to read and to learn. It's tough, but it's worth it. If you're not serious about academics and if you don't enjoy learning, I wouldn't go to Grove City.
Christopher from Philadelphia, PA
I would definitely suggest visiting the campus before you make any decisions. The campus at Grove City is gorgeous and the staff and faculty are really nice and super helpful. And of course it is really helpful to be on top of things, and make sure that you are giving yourself the time you need to get everything done.
Alex from PA
If you are interested in applying, make sure to take challenging courses in high school. Your grades, as well as the difficulty level of your high school coursework, are important components in admissions. Also, make sure to have significant involvement in at least one or two extracurricular activities. If you live close enough to the college, be certain to schedule an interview, as this is given a lot of weight. I would also recommend scheduling a tour of the beautiful campus.
Kate
As the popular campus saying goes: Grove City College--where your best isn't good enough since 1876. It will be a lot of work, but it will also be the most amazing learning experience of your life. Also, be prepared to be challenged and uplifted in your faith by both students and faculty. Finally, if you love sports, this is the place for you. On average a student participates in 2.3 Intramural sports...not including club and varsity.
Jonathan from East Islip, NY
Make sure that you come and visit the campus - most people live really close, so that's not hard, but as someone who comes from further away, it was really important for me to see what GCC was actually like. The numbers in the pamphlet didn't convince me to come here - it was the atmosphere and the general attitude of everyone here when I visited.
Mandy from Phoenix, AZ
Visit the campus! Definitely interview! Talk to current students. Apply Early Decision if you know it's where you want to go.

When you get in, take Old and New Testament with Dr. Bibza!
Katherine from Tucson, AZ
Yes, it's a lot of work to be a good GCC student. Yes, you can still have an awesome college experience despite that fact. Practice good study habits so you won't be knocked off your feet by the workload when you get here.

As a member of a fraternity, I can say that it's been awesome being able to live with such an amazing group of guys this year. When you get here, look into fraternities, sororities, and housing groups. It has really enhanced my college experience, and I would recommend that all freshmen consider it.

Most importantly: Don't get too worked up about grades! Do your best, but don't stress as if you need an A to have a successful future. Strive to glorify God with your work here, and you'll have nothing to worry about.
Jacob from Whitinsville, MA
The interview is important. Don't come here if you plan on partying and drinking often.
Lynn from Lewis Center, OH
Come to the campus and experience it for yourself! Come and meet your potential professors in a major you are considering at one of the Junior or Senior Crimson days. Have a meal in the cafeteria. Talk with students walking around on campus and you will see just how friendly they really are.
