Peter Mershon, '14

B.A. in Sociology

I was introduced to Grove City College by my sister who came here three years before me. What really drew me to attend here was the balanced combination of rigorous academics and authentic Christian values the college promotes.

As a student, I learned that Grove City College lives up to its reputation. The classes are challenging and applicable both to Christianity and to life in general. I was particularly impressed by the way my classes integrated with each other and with what was happening in my life outside of academics. Core classes such as Science, Faith, and Technology and Speculative Mind helped me evaluate my world view critically and develop my views in coherent and defendable manner.

As a sociology major, I cultivated an interest in studying people and how they interact. This process is facilitated by an solid team of professors with impressive resumes. The sociology program offers training and opportunities for a host of potential careers. These range from criminology and social work to counseling and have a host of learning opportunities, internships, and even future job connections.
