    REVIEW OF GROVE CITY COLLEGE

    I chose Grove City College for Christian values and rigorous academics. I liked the culture and the environment to learn and develop. I was able to immerse myself in academics while growing in my faith. My sister also attended so I had family ties.


    Course Curriculum - 

    In my opinion, the course curriculum is very difficult and relies heavily on a Christian background and basis. Though not an Ivy League school, Grove City is at the Ivy League level. My courses in my master's program at a different school are currently are incredibly easier than undergrad.
