Sarah M. (Underwood) Nichols, '14

I feel truly blessed to be back at my alma mater as an employee, enjoying a new extension of the unique community here. As a student, I benefited in so many ways from my relationships with professors, students and the Grove City community. My professors offered a challenging academic experience while fostering a deeper love of learning and a greater sense of how my gifting fits into the professional world. They also nurtured me as an individual and demonstrated character and integrity in and out of the classroom. I formed wonderful, lasting relationships with students who sharpened my character and encouraged my walk with the Lord. The residential community of Grove City welcomed me as a student and provided opportunities to engage with other generations and practice good citizenship.

As you begin to search for the school that provides the best fit for you, please know that I am praying for you and excited to help you through the process. We, in the Admissions office, are concerned with the well-being of each student, and it is our desire to help him or her discern whether or not Grove City College is a good fit. Know that I am your advocate in this process, which can seem daunting at times, and am here to answer any questions you may have. I invite you to lean on the support you have here at Grove City College to help you make this important decision! 

About Me
I am a fervent lover of a few things and a busy collector of interests. My first and greatest love is for my Lord and Savior, who in His great mercy and love, reminds me daily of my need for Him and His ability to provide all things. I also love my family and friends, of whom I am a composite of each one’s influence. Finally, I love my school! I truly believe the education I received through a Christian worldview is my most valuable possession. Aside from the things I love, I find that my interests are morphing all the time. Some things I’ve grown to enjoy lately are discovering new musical artists, exploring the unbelievably diverse country we live in, and learning about the complex and creative world of photography.

Favorite Scripture
"Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God." Ephesians 6:10-17

Favorite College Memory
Every semester during finals, my roommates and I would bring our mattresses into our living room and sleep there for the entire week. We had a blast spending our last week of each semester giggling into the wee hours of the morning!

Favorite Activity on Campus
I’m a sucker for live music so I love that Grove City has coffee houses so frequently!
