​​

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.

    Bochenkova, a member of the Grove City College Chess Club, is “the strongest player I know about that Grove City has ever had,” according to Dr. Dorian Yeager, chess club advisor and professor of computer science and mathematics. “It’s her analysis of the game. She analyzes positions really well.”

  • ​I was aware that Grove City College was one of the most affordable private Christian colleges anywhere. But after visiting campus I knew it was the right place for me.

    I wanted smaller classes where I’d be able to ask questions, collaborate, get to know my professors and have them get to know me. Grove City College’s low student-faculty ratio of 15:1 meant that I’d be in the type of environment where I knew I’d learn best.

  • ​I grew up in Anchorage, Alaska, and knew that I wanted to go to a conservative private Christian college in the lower 48 – perhaps on the west coast somewhere. I also knew I wouldn’t settle for anything less than the best and most rigorous academics.

    I chose Grove City College because in my mind nothing can compare with it. Where else can you get such a great education, in a conservative and Christian environment at such a low cost? I looked at other options, but found none.

  • ​I’ve lived all over the world and believe that the true purpose of education is to feed and educate the whole person. At Grove City College I found the emphasis on the humanities I wanted and the Christian environment I needed.

    I was able to examine, reflect and appreciate what I learned from past generations — the values that were passed on to me and the sense of honor and respect that helped me to become the person I am today.

    I enjoyed living, working and learning ...Read More
