5 Unexpected Benefits of Attending Geneva College

It's no secret that students enjoy access to a high-quality education and a close-knit community at Geneva College, but the benefits of attending this acclaimed Christian university extend far beyond the classroom and dormitory. From tutoring and academic counseling to Zipcar rentals, Geneva offers a variety of services designed to make college life more rewarding.

Peer Tutoring

Classes at Geneva can be rigorous, but there are always plenty of options available for mastering your academic material and acing your exams. After you've stopped by your professor's office for feedback, feel free to hit up the Student Success Center, located near the Skye Lounge. The Student Success Center offers free peer tutoring services, from students with high grade point averages. These students come highly recommended by Geneva's finest faculty members.

Free Laundry

There's no need to scrounge for quarters or let your dirty clothes pile up; free laundry is available for Geneva students. Each residence hall has a laundry facility, complete with plenty of washing machines and dryers. Students only need to provide their own detergent and dryer sheets.

Fitness Center

The “Freshman 15” is a common concern among new students. However, upperclassmen, graduate students, and returning students also find it difficult to get the exercise they need. At Geneva College, we recognize that regular exercise is vital not only to personal health but also academic success. To encourage our students to exercise on a daily basis, we provide easy access to a state-of-the-art fitness center. Open to all students and faculty members, our fitness center boasts several cardio and weight training machines, along with an open space for flexibility training. Free cable television will keep you entertained as you burn off those extra calories.


Getting around campus is easy at Geneva College, where grocery stores, dining establishments, and numerous entertainment options are all within walking distance. If you need to leave campus and do not have a car, you're encouraged to carpool with a friend. If this is not possible, you can easily rent a Zipcar, which you can use for anywhere from one hour to one week. Gas, insurance, and maintenance are all included in your hourly or daily rental rate.

Career Counseling and Assessment

Classes and student life may be the focus now, but a proactive approach to career planning will ensure that you land a job soon after you obtain your degree. Get yourself on track with career counseling and assessment at Geneva College. Geneva's Career Development program can help you determine which major is a good fit and how you can best put it to use after graduation. Additionally, you can obtain assistance with everything from finding internships to completing your resume. Feel free to schedule an appointment in person or over the phone.

Your academic goals will be well within reach when you attend Geneva College. For more information on how we can help you pursue your academic and career goals, contact us at 855-979-5563 or admissions@geneva.edu.
