Spring is in full swing and the school year is coming to an end, which means college decision deadlines are coming up. High school seniors are faced with the choice of where they will spend the next four years of their lives, dedicating their time and energy.
High school senior, Michael Logie, also known as my younger brother, recently decided to commit to Grove City College. Michael will be the sixth Logie to attend Grove City in the fall. Both of my parents, as well as my two older brothers all attended the school.
Due to all of my family members’ positive experiences at Grove City, the school’s attractive qualities and Michael’s personal appreciation for the school and its atmosphere, he decided this was the place for him. Similar to me, Michael grew up hearing about and visiting Grove City from time to time, so the idea of going here was always appealing to him. The affordability, quality education, atmosphere of the campus and the extracurricular activities offered sold him on the idea of coming here.
Michael’s looking forward to following in the footsteps of many family members and experiencing the campus for himself during the four years to come. He’s especially anticipating getting involved in sports like Indoor and Outdoor Track and Cross Country, as well as different intramural sports. He’s also interested in potentially participating in Greek Life as a way to build community and establish friendships.
He isn’t completely sure what he would like to major in yet, but he’s strongly considering something in the business or economics realm because that’s where his interests lie and he’d like to pursue a career in that area. Michael feels that the education offered by Grove City is unparalleled and adequately prepares students for the professional world.
He summarizes his decision to attend Grove City saying, “I decided to go to GCC in part because of the affordable tuition, but mainly because of the fact that GCC graduates are able to get jobs right out of college fairly easily compared to graduates at most other schools.”
While Michael also considered West Chester University and University of Pittsburgh, he settled on Grove City largely because of its outstanding ability to guide graduating students on their career paths. He reflects on Grove City saying, “Grove City offers a better education and a more favorable reputation than other schools.”
As senior year comes to an end for Michael, he’s excited to embark on the adventure that is Grove City College. He feels confident about his decision to attend a school that will both challenge and reward him, and he looks forward to being a part of the familiar and welcoming environment of Grove City.
