B.S. in Exercise Science

How big of a role did the affordability of Grove City College play in your college decision making process?
The affordability played a huge role in my decision to choose Grove City College. A Christian, private education at this value was difficult to pass up.

How was your faith strengthened and perhaps even challenged during your time here?
It was strengthened by the community of students at Grove City College that share the same faith and morals. I appreciate the fact that Grove City College does not offer a Sunday morning church service at the chapel because it forces students to go off campus and find a church to get involved in.

How would you describe the level of academics you experienced?
Academics were challenging but definitely gave me assurance that I was getting an excellent education with the level of rigor in many of the classes.

What is the relationship like between the students and the professors?
The student-professor relationship is great. Most of the professors want you to succeed in their classes and will offer encouragement and advice throughout the semester. I appreciated how personable many of the teachers are.

What was your favorite aspect of Grove City College?
Not only did I get a great education at a reasonable price but the people made my time very enjoyable. I enjoyed being surrounded by like-minded people who challenged and lifted each other up daily.

Describe your experience with residence life at Grove City College, particularly freshman year.
Freshman year I shared a room with one other girl. Although we had much different personalities, it was a great learning process of how to live with different people. I enjoyed my years in the resdience halls!
