Erin Johnson, '99

B.S. in Chemistry

How big of a role did the affordability of Grove City College play in your college decision making process?
Huge. I had my college tuition loans paid off within five years of graduation.

How was your faith strengthened and perhaps even challenged during your time here?
It wasn’t so much that it was strengthened, but that it was maintained. God used Grove City College to keep me on track by surrounding and challenging me with fellow believers that were on the same path as me. What a treasure.

How did the academics challenge students to think on a deeper level about the world and life in general?
One thing I know to be true: you can learn almost any job so it really does not matter what you know before going into a job. What matters most is that you are receptive to being trained and embracing the assignments/responsibilities given to you, no matter how daunting the tasks may seem. Also, if you have given your life to Jesus, then it is not really about you at all. It is about making yourself available and living to the plan that God has already designed for you.

What are some of the ways that professors ensure that students not only receive information but truly learn and understand how to apply that information?
I was just recalling the other day the life of a Grove City College chemistry major. We were with our professors nearly eight hours a day between class and lab time. Grove City College science professors certainly have to give an excess of time to students between class, lab, and office hours.

How did you hear about Grove City College?
I heard about Grove City College at a college fair from a recruiter from Malone College in ‘94. Can you imagine a recruiter from another college pointing me to Grove City College? Now that’s a God thing.

How would you describe the relationship that the students have with each other on campus?
Students are friendly and courteous. Because Grove City College is small format, you really can get to know a lot of people across all the academic years.
