    Washington Post ^ | 05/17/2014 | Robert Costa
    In his lone commencement address of the year, former Florida governor Jeb Bush urged students at a Christian liberal arts college Saturday to reaffirm their socially conservative values, a sign that he is underscoring his own as he considers running in the 2016 Republican presidential primaries. “Remain true to your convictions and your faith,” Bush said, speaking at Grove City College in northwestern Pennsylvania. “This may seem a little challenging today, where we have a federal government that is willingly violating the religious freedom of its citizens. But we don’t have to accept it.” Dropping a possible hint about his...

    GROVE CITY — Grove City College was graced with an all-day visit on Tuesday from U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. "He was full of vitality and energy," professor John Sparks said of the 63-year-old Thomas, who spoke to Sparks' Constitution History class, as well as a Founders' History class taught by professor Craig Columbus. "This is a very humble, down-to-earth man who hasn't forgotten where he came from," said Paul Kengor, political science professor and director of The Center for Vision & Values at GCC. Thomas also spoke with the student council and to faculty at a luncheon. On...
  • An attack on liberty-loving colleges (Government now seeks monopoly on student loans)

    Ronald Reagan said it best. "The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'" I was reflecting on this quote in light of Washington's plan, as part of "health-care reform," to nationalize all college loans. This is an aspect of the legislation that hasn't received nearly as much attention as it deserves, because it's one of those seemingly innocuous, do-gooder notions that most people just don't understand. Why would a government deeply, hopelessly in debt seek a monopoly on college loans? Obviously, Washington under the rulership of Barack Obama, Nancy...

    Students at these schools don’t venture far off the path that leads to the right. Religion plays a big role in the campus activities, generally, as do morals and character profiles that would make any parent proud. The Princeton Review's survey of 122,000 college students for the 2010 edition of the "Best 371 Colleges" book revealed the top 10 colleges that have conservative campus cultures, especially regarding political persuasion, the use of drugs and alcohol and the level of acceptance of the gay community on campus.

    Jordan Gruber was right: Grove City Area High School officials could not hold him to three minutes. The school valedictorian — who fought a ban on farewell addresses at commencement ceremonies and was granted three minutes to deliver his speech — took the podium Friday night, opened with a joke that he would rather be fishing, then segued into a 6 1/2-minute speech that touched on themes including freedom, patriotism and religion. "Being an American is a privilege that has been granted to us, not earned by us," Gruber said. "I thank God that our forefathers thought it worth their...

    WYTV ^ | 5/8/2009
    When 22 year old Grove City College student John Gechter began modeling for the porn industry, he was warned that eventually he would be discovered by the public-at-large. Less than 24 hours after a fellow student found the online images, they were emailed all over campus and sent to the college administration. “It’s a conservative school, so juicy gossip like this would fly around campus quickly,” said Gechter in a lengthy phone interview with our newsroom. Gechter said school officials acted quickly and gave him three choices: Withdraw, be suspended, or appeal. “I didn’t like any of the three choices,”...

    TOWNHALL ^ | 04/27/2007 | Lindsay Boyd
    As many Townhall readers may remember, I spent last week blogging from Grove City College’s Center for Vision and Values conference on “The De-Christianization of Europe: From Nicea to Nietzsche”. It was a privilege to be a part of this highly philosophical, conservatively intellectual examination into the decomposition of Christian values that’s taking place across the world. Grove City truly is a bastion for principled education and it was refreshing to observe the students as they interacted with some of the brightest minds in modern religious studies. Following the Virginia Tech travesty, I reflected again on my experience at Grove...

    Enrollment is up at smaller colleges with Christian values. Some think students hope it will launch political careers. By Adam Karlin | Contributor to The Christian Science Monitor Catherine Shultis, a National Merit Scholar with a perfect SAT score, is a natural for the hallowed halls of academia: Harvard, Columbia, Georgetown. But last month, she began her freshman year at Franciscan University of Steubenville in Ohio. Why Steubenville instead of Cambridge, Mass., or New York? The East Coast elite universities "lack a grounding in the Christian faith, and they're turning away from core principles and becoming more and more liberal,"...
