Welcome to Grove City College!
I am so excited, humbled and blessed to represent this fine institution! I have come to find a genuine, caring and rich campus full of educators ready to impart knowledge to our students; staff willing to go out of their way to accommodate; and students who are so happy to be here- taking advantage of amazing opportunities and growing in their walk with God. I wish I could pen down all the amazing opportunities that students are taking advantage of just this year…but I don’t have room! I can give you a couple examples like our Mechanical Engineering students participating in the Human Powered Vehicle Challenge; students being selected for Rhodes and Fulbright fellowships; our Entrepreneurship students taking first and second places at the Tepper Venture Challenge; four soon to be alumni taking an across country trip by bike to promote service and values of GCC to alumni and prospective students; and the speech and debate team winning national honors. I haven’t even mentioned our athletes, musicians and faculty and staff achievements! This is truly a special place!
As you search for where the right fit is for you and consider Grove City College my prayer for you is that you will find a connection with our students, faculty and staff. We are here to serve you, help you make this process as smooth as possible and ultimately welcome you to our family. If you find a home at another institution we hope that you will always think fondly of your experience at GCC as we wish you well, no matter your future endeavors!
Please let us know how we may help you. Ask us your tough questions and I promise you we will always do our very best to serve you!

I long and thirst after Jesus. His wisdom is what I seek. His love is my identity. His grace is my sustenance. My faith cannot be summed up in one word but rather a life lived for His glory and for His purpose. At all times I strive to follow God’s will for my life and not my own. I strive to live my life with integrity, truth, respect, and love towards everyone I encounter.
My ministry is in the day to day interaction with my staff, colleagues and students who I encounter each day. I pray that daily I can be shaped into a beautiful and useful vessel for the Lord’s glory (Ezekiel 36:25-28).
- Zephaniah 3:17: “The Lord your God is in the midst of you, a Mighty One, a Savior [Who saves]! He will rejoice over you with joy; He will rest [in silent satisfaction] and in His love He will be silent and make no mention [of past sins, or even recall them]; He will exult over you with singing.” (Amplified)
Favorite College Memory
- Jumping in any friend's car and going on an “adventure.” It was a great way of learning the East Coast when I came to college and I will always remember the laughter and great experiences on those “road trips!”
Favorite Activity On-Campus
- Having lunch at any of our Dining Halls (MAP, HICKS, or GEE) with students, faculty or staff!
