Madalyn Gustafson '20

Hello there! I am so excited that God has led you to this point in your college search. As Visit Coordinator, I am privileged to introduce you to my alma mater. As you start to picture what your future might look like, I encourage you to schedule a visit to check out the incredible things God is constantly doing on this campus. I would be more than happy to work with you to cultivate an individualized experience as you are visiting campus to ensure that you are able to experience all that Grove City College has to offer.

About Me
For me, Grove City College felt like home almost immediately. I knew I wanted to attend an institution that would encourage me to grow further in my faith, but I had no clue where that would lead me until I stepped onto Grove City College’s campus for the first time and knew that this place was different. Ultimately, I chose Grove City not only to be challenged by my academics and encouraged in my faith but also because of the strong, authentic, intentional, close-knit community that passionately pursues Jesus together here.
During my undergraduate experience at Grove City, I fell in love with Jesus and was able to cultivate a deeper relationship with Him because I was continually surrounded by a community craving the Lord’s presence. I was challenged in my academics to truly discern what the Lord was calling me to do and learned how to work really hard to achieve my goals. One of the biggest blessings during my four years was developing lifelong friendships through getting involved in different parts of campus such as Greek life and Orientation Board.
My experience at Grove City College was life changing in every possible way and ultimately led to my pursuit of a Masters in Higher Education. I am excited to be back at my alma mater to guide students in their first step of the college admissions process and share my passion for this incredible institution with each of you.

Favorite Scripture
“Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect”-Romans 12:2

Favorite College Memory: All-Campus Sing with the Alpha Beta Tau Sorority, Warriors for Christ on Thursday nights and having the opportunity to worship with the whole campus community every week, planning events for Orientation Board, and being a part of a woman’s discipleship group.

Favorite Activity on Campus
Throughout the school year different clubs and organizations on campus offer a wide variety of dance events. From the Orientation Board Street Dance to Greek Life Formals and the Rho Rho Rho Extravaganza to the Student Government Association Gala or even random dance parties with friends in a dorm room (note: while also singing late 2000s Taylor Swift music). It certainly seemed like campus was always active and lively.

Kayaking, hammocking, hiking, skiing, running, and listening to live music.
