The Grove City College admissions office is hosting open houses specifically for prospective students interested in majoring in music, STEM, or education.
“Open houses are a high impact experience for prospective students because they meet people who may become a big part of their college lives. They interact with potential faculty mentors and current Grove City students who are studying in their field. Nothing beats meeting faculty and students in helping high schoolers make a college decision,” Vice President for Student Recruitment Lee Wishing ’83 said
