I grew up in nearby Hermitage, Pa. Initially I thought I would go somewhere far away for college until college students from the Grove City College YoungLife ministry started to mentor and invest in me while I was in high school. The connections I had with them as well as my youth pastor, who was also a Grove City alum, were extremely impactful on me. I quickly realized that I wanted to be a part of the community they had here on campus. The great friendships they had, with deep ties to the faith, pulled me in. My years as a student at Grove City College had a very positive impact on my faith, community, and work ethic.

Favorite Grove City Memory
My favorite memory as a student was my time on my freshman hall in Memorial dorm. The combination of the incredible R.A.’s along with the unique collection of freshmen provided so much fun, encouragement, and accountability during my freshman year and the years ahead. The hall Bible study, hall prayer, great conversations, hard work, and spontaneous fun will always be remembered and cherished.
Favorite On-Campus Activity
My favorite on-campus activity is watching varsity sports. From football to soccer, basketball, baseball, track and field, and more, there’s never a dull moment on campus as these competitive events are going on all year long.
