Being a City Boy in Rural PA: What’s Western PA All About?

If you couldn’t tell from my previous post, I love city living. From the abounding culture to crossing the street when that pesky red hand shines at you from across the road (but come on, there’s not even a car coming down the street), there’s something about being in a city that just makes me feel […]

Alicia VanDerhoof

Student Profile: Alicia VanDerhoof on Growing in Community

Alicia VanDerhoof is a junior English major who recently agreed to sit down for an interview. I wanted to get her perspective on Grove City College because she knows this place well and has committed herself to the community, both on and off campus, and is a generally thoughtful person as well. Why Grove City? […]


Questions You Should Definitely Ask on Your Campus Tour

It is great practice for all campus tours to be uniform and follow a certain pattern so you (the prospective student) can learn everything there is to know about Grove City. But if you are anything like I was when visiting schools, you want to hear the things they do not normally talk about on […]


Passing Along Passion: Children’s Theatre

Shifting Roles: GCC Theatre as a Means of Change

If growing up outside of New York City didn’t ensure that I’d see a Broadway show as child, having a dad who saw over 500 shows by the age of 18 and who majored in Theatre from Fordham University definitely did. The stage has beckoned me from my earliest years, creating a sense of wonder […]

Grove City College food

Food for Thought

While the subject of food might not be the determining factor that high school seniors use when choosing their college, it becomes very important when they realize breakfast, lunch, and dinner for the whole semester will be coming from the school cafeteria. While the food served at college will never compare to the meals prepared […]

2017 March for Life

My First March for Life

I woke up at 3:20 a.m. Not my normal wake-up time, I assure you. But I was meeting six other Grovers in the SAC at 3:45 and wanted to give myself enough time to get ready. It’s been 44 years since Roe v. Wade, and so this past Friday, January 27, was the 44th Annual March […]
