​​

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.

  • ​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.

    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.

  • ​I wanted to go to a Christian college, but one that gave me the freedom to express my faith in my own way. I also wanted a like-minded community of friends who I could learn from and spend time with.

    A real sense of being part of a community is very important to me — both at home and at college. At home, I’m a volunteer firefighter and an EMT.
    And at College, I’m very involved in campus life. I’m the drum major of the marching band and I play in the Grove City College Jazz ...Read More
