Student Life

At Grove City College, student development is about much more than programs and residence life. It’s a holistic approach that, when coupled with your academic experience, will help you become the adult you want to be. From the supportive residence hall staff, to events that stretch your thinking, your faith and your relationships with your peers, the Office of Student Life and Learning is here to make your outside-of-the-classroom experience as valuable as the time you spend on your academics, as the two inform one another.

You’ll have access to a host of intramural sports and recreational activities, Bible studies, and activities with your fellow Grove City College students. The Grove City College experience is about getting a solid foundation in the humanities that made our society great; it’s about graduating with a command of your major field of study; but it’s also about leaving Grove City College a well-rounded individual who can impact the world.

  • How big of a role did the affordability of GCC play in your college decision making process?
    The affordability of attending Grove City College did not play a major role in my decision, however, it certainly helped make the decision even easier!

    You name it! Grove City College offers group Bible studi...Read More


  • How big of a role did the affordability of GCC play in your college decision making process?
    The affordability of GCC played a big factor in my decision making process. While other colleges could offer an ABET accredited engineering program, few could provide a strong campus community. Even fewer could offer both of these to students at such a great price. GCC’s ability to provide both at such an affordable rate made choosing the college an easy choice fi...Read More
