Grove City College is a Christian liberal arts college in Grove City, in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania, about 65 miles (105 km) north of Pittsburgh. According to the College Bulletin, its stated three-fold mission is to provide an excellent education at an affordable price in a thoroughly Christian environment. College president Richard Jewell has said, "The two tenets that this school is most about are faith and freedom."
The school emphasizes a humanities core curriculum, which endorses the Judeo-Christian Western tradition and the free market. While loosely associated with the Presbyterian Church, the college is non-denominational and does not require students to sign a statement of faith, though they are required to attend sixteen chapel services per semester.

My subject is city lifewith its sofas, hotel corridors, cinemas, underworlds, cardboard suitcases, self-willed buses, banknotes, soapy bathrooms, newspaper-filled parks; and its anguish, its enraged excitement, its great lonely joys.”
—Rosemary Tonks (b. 1932)

Catherine: Theyre the worst. College girls are one step from the street, I tell you.”
