Grove City College
Grove City College
Location: Grove City, Pa.
Tuition & fees: $13,088

For students who want to get a rigorous education in a conservative Christian environment, Grove City is a bargain.

There are many Christian organizations on campus, and students are encouraged to get involved with local churches and embark on short missions trips, said John Inman, dean of enrollment at the college.

Classes are offered in 40 majors, and every student receives a tablet PC and printer/scanner/copier.

"Grove City College isn't for everyone -- no college is -- but for those students looking for an authentically Christian school with rigorous academics at an amazing value, it is that place," said Inman.

Still, students know how to break away from the books: The school offers more than 130 clubs, many musical groups, and Division III sports teams. Intramural sports also are popular: 60% of Grove City's 2,500 undergrads participate.

To keep tuition low, "the college lives within its means," said Inman. "Faculty, staff and administrators are constantly looking to provide quality programs while always keeping an eye on costs. Also, the college does not believe in debt, so funds are raised in full to build a building before construction begins."
