Being the youngest of four siblings who all attended Grove City College, I developed an early love for the school. As early as my freshman year in high school, my sister—studying economics—would come home during breaks, tell me all the fascinating things she was learning in her classes and recommend books I would like. I was immediately hooked and could hardly wait to apply.
I found the Department of Economics at Grove City College to be a wonderful combination of helpful and dedicated faculty and an ideal worldview of economics rooted in faith and freedom. The College is one of the few economic programs in the country that teaches the Austrian school of economics, advocating limited government and individual rights. It is guided by principles of liberty with a biblical foundation. The economics professors became my mentors, and I frequently asked their advice about classes, careers and opportunities. Through internships and other opportunities during my time at the College, I learned how well the College’s Department of Economics is respected around the country in Austrian economic circles.
