Grove City College

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.

Famous quotes containing the words grove, city and/or college:

    He was burned, so he ran into the bamboo grove, but the grove caught fire.
    Punjabi proverb, trans. by Gurinder Singh Mann.

    From Washington, proverbially “the city of distances,” through all its cities, states, and territories, it is a country of beginnings, of projects, of designs, and expectations.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Face your own ambivalence about letting go and you will be better able to help you children cope with their own feelings. The insight you gain through your own acceptance of change will bolster your confidence and make you a stronger college parent. The confidence you develop will be evident to your child, who will be able to move away from you without fear.
    Norman Goddam (20th century)
