Being from New York, I wasn’t particularly dreaming of going to college in Western PA. But when I heard about Grove City College, that all changed! Grove City College was absolutely the dream school for me.
I am fortunate to have had two older brothers attend GCC before me. I remember hearing about the amazing friendships and experiences they would gain each semester. My brothers were already heroes to me but seeing how they grew and developed during their time at Grove City College made my college decision obvious – I was going to follow in their footsteps and attend GCC!
Something I love about Grove City College is that each student can have a unique experience. For me, I knew I wanted to study Biblical and Religious Studies and play football. As a student-athlete I learned to glorify God in the earning of a meaningful degree, the development of lifelong friendships, and in competing for conference championships. I am also happy to say that I met my beautiful wife, Kristen (’19), while serving together in the local Young Life ministry during our college years.
The time I spent at Grove City College was truly transformational! The experience and education prepared me with the virtues needed to live a life of deep meaning and purpose. I now seek to love and serve those around me with those virtues as I return to Grove City College as a staff member.
