Grove City College Among Princeton Review’s ‘Best’

GROVE CITY, Pa. — The Princeton Review has named Grove City College as one of America’s best, the college announced Tuesday.

The Princeton Review’s just-released “The Best 382 Colleges” 2018 guidebook places Grove City in the nation’s top 15%. The college is also identified as a “Best Northeastern” school and a “College That Pays You Back” in the educational testing  company’s annual rundown of top colleges and universities.

“We chose Grove City College for this book because it offers outstanding academics,” Robert Franek, Princeton Review’s editor-in-chief, said.

Princeton Review surveys college administrators, visits campuses, relies on staff reports and a 24-member National College Counselor Advisory Board to select colleges and universities for the guide, Franek said. “Most importantly, we look at valuable feedback we get from each school’s customers – our surveys of students attending them.”

Grove City College rated high in five categories that The Princeton Review evaluates on a scale of 60 to 100:

  • Academic rating – 84
  • Accessible professors – 90
  • Quality of life – 89
  • Admissions rating − 86
  • Financial aid rating – 78

“When it comes to challenging students to grow intellectually and spiritually, our high standards produce outstanding outcomes resulting in well-prepared graduates eager to pursue their life’s calling,” the president of Grove City College, Paul J. McNulty, said. “Our Christ-centered living and learning environment provides a strong spiritual foundation and delivers unsurpassed academic experiences at an amazing value. Inclusion in The Princeton Review’s guide affirms our vision to be one of America’s finest colleges.”

According to the publication, students at Grove City value the outstanding academics, interesting professors, Christian community and high-quality campus life there. “The low cost of tuition is just gravy, as is the strong alumni network and great reputation with employers,” the publication said.
