Visiting Grove City College

​Visiting Campus​

Grove City College is located in Grove City, Pennsylvania, a quaint community of 8,000, just 60 miles north of Pittsburgh.

There’s a comfortable feeling being in Olde Town Grove City, with its friendly places to eat, get coffee and old-time movie theatre offering premiere movies at second-run prices. Grove City’s residential areas feature tree-lined boulevards and neatly manicured lawns. And what’s more—Grove City College is within easy driving distance of the big-city attractions Pittsburgh has to offer.

Walking along the sidewalks on campus, you get the sense that this is a special place—a place that students, faculty and staff treat with respect. The College’s stately neo-Gothic buildings, constructed in a consistent architectural theme, are meticulously maintained. Each season provides a beautiful year-round backdrop for study.
