Kellyann Baker '22

It is a truly rare phenomenon these days to find a college that lives up to the values it has proclaimed since the beginning. Freedom in education, serving others, and Christ-centered learning — these are just a few of the principles Grove City College has striven to uphold, while the popular culture continues to change. As a student, I found a unique opportunity to pursue truth at liberty, with the firm conviction that what I was learning came directly out of a Christian approach and therefore led me to love God more.

About Me
I am from a small, rural town not far from the campus, where God’s grandeur can be found in the plowing of the wheat and the crimson skyline at dusk. When I found Grove City, it felt like an outstretch of the beauty I sought in my youth, where God’s love is apparent not just in my surroundings, but in the rich steeping of tradition, and through the lips of those bound by faith. From my first visit to campus, I was enchanted by the genuine faith of the students and faculty, and I knew I was truly seeking to grow in that genuineness myself. It was here I met truly amazing people, drawn by the same vision I had, who have become my deepest friends. When I look back at the greatest gift of my four years, I think of all the people — students and professors alike — who have influenced me to become the best person I can be. And it is through this outpouring of love that I strive to return the favor to others.

Favorite Scripture
“They remembered that God was their rock, the Most High, God their redeemer. But they flattered Him with their mouths; they lied to Him with their tongues. Their heart was not steadfast toward Him; they were not true to His covenant. Yet He, being compassionate, forgave their iniquity and did not destroy them; He restrained his anger often, and did not stir up all His wrath. He remembered that they were but flesh, a wind that passes and comes not again” (Psalm 78:35-39).

“He must increase, but I must decrease” (John 3:30).

Favorite College Memory
Once, my friends in the English Department organized an off-campus poetry reading at a nearby apple orchard. It was autumn, and the reading slipped into good conversation as the leaves fell about us in the grass. I met some of my best friends there, drawn together by the graceful ease of the natural world and our shared love of poetry.
