Strengthen Your Faith

“Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.” 1 Corinthians 16:13

God created the universe and is sovereign over all things. He is the source of all truth and His word is the foundation for everything we do. Every aspect of campus life at Geneva is built on these facts. In the classroom, on the athletic field or in the residence halls, you will be challenged to examine how everything in your life relates to the Lord of all creation.

“As we learn about the intricate networking of our bodies, we are also taught to appreciate the presence of an intelligent designer god.” Ibukun Akinboyo, biology

“Christian education endeavors to develop each student’s capacity for the enjoyment of the world as God’s creation, in all its cultural richness, realizing that all of life as a coherent whole is related to God and His redemptive activity.” Geneva College’s Foundational Concepts of Christian Education


THE CENTER FOR FAITH AND PRACTICE Regardless of where you are in your journey of faith, God does not want you to walk alone. The Center for Faith and Practice is deeply committed to guiding you toward a stronger relationship with Christ. Chapel The entire college community gathers weekly to praise God, hear His word, and seek His favor and direction. Throughout the year, you will hear testimonies from faculty, pastors, fellow students and a variety of other nationally-known speakers and invited guests. Discipleship Student discipleship coordinators facilitate spiritual growth on campus through mentoring both resident and commuter students and leading Bible studies. Missions The Quest Program affords students the opportunity to step outside their comfort zone and serve others. Students bring relief and minister to others in a variety of local, domestic and international locations. Service Reach out to the community through the Studentsin-Service (SIS) program, or through Geneva’s many partnerships with local churches, schools and non-profit organizations. Opportunities to serve include building and renovating for needy people with Habitat for Humanity, mentoring young people in the area at Tiger Pause Youth Ministries, working with the elderly in the SIS Senior Ministry and more. CCCU and Geneva At Geneva College, all members of the faculty and staff are evangelical Christians and are active in their churches. A commitment to employ only candidates who profess faith in Jesus Christ is a requirement in becoming a part of the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities (CCCU), of which Geneva is a founding member. This important distinction sets Geneva apart from other religiously affiliated colleges and universities that aren’t members of the CCCU, and ensures that our campus environment endorses and strengthens Christian values. 3

“Being a part of Geneva College has changed the way I see many things. It has helped me build a firmer foundation in the Lord and allowed me to exercise and hone my discipline and drive to do all for the glory of God.” Josiah Reiner, Sociology major


QUEST TRIPS “Quest trips are short-term trips designed to help students connect a Christian worldview to faithful reflection, response and action. Students spend time listening and learning from community partners and serving alongside them in the ongoing work they do. In the past, students have served in Los Angeles, Mexico, Aliquippa, Pittsburgh, New Orleans and Washington, D.C.” Missy Nyeholt, Director for the Center for Faith and Practice

FACULTY The faculty is at the heart of every college. At Geneva, you will find professors who are committed to excellence in learning.

All tenure track professors are required to produce a faith and learning paper that clearly demonstrates the integration of faith with their specific discipline. No matter what major you choose, God will be at the center of your learning.

“I really like that the class size is small enough to let me have a personal relationship with my professors.” Jordan Harbison, Business major, sport management minor

Geneva can provide focus and direction to your search to help you meet that challenge. Many students enter Geneva College with undeclared majors. We offer programs and services specifically designed to help you assess your strengths and talents and connect them to academic programs.

CORE CURRICULUM The courses that make up the core curriculum provide the academic framework for everything you learn at Geneva. As you explore the arts, sciences, humanities and more from a biblical perspective, you will develop a Christian worldview that reveals how faith in Jesus Christ impacts every area of learning, your life and career, and the whole of creation. No matter which major you choose, you will receive a well-rounded education through required courses in biblical studies; communications; humanities; physical education; and the natural, social and political sciences.

AFFILIATED PROGRAMS Geneva offers a number of affiliated programs, providing the advantages of an accredited, Christ-centered liberal arts education at Geneva in combination with specialized instruction at another institution. These include visual communication programs in partnership with the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, environmental science courses at Au Sable Institute’s various locations throughout the world, a combined bachelor’s and master’s degree program in cardiovascular sciences with the nationally-recognized Inova Heart and Vascular Institute in Falls Church, VA, and the 3&3 Program through the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary (RPTS) in Pittsburgh, which allows students to receive a bachelor’s degree from Geneva and a Master of Divinity from RPTS in only six years.

TRADITIONS During its 160-year history, Geneva has developed a rich history of traditions. We love sharing the stories of our past, just as we love having students take part in creating today’s campus culture. Come to Geneva and add your story to the collection. The Golden Tornadoes Geneva sports teams were originally nicknamed the Covenanters, or “Covies,” a tribute to the school’s Scottish Presbyterian heritage. In the 1920s, however, a new moniker began appearing in student newspaper articles. Some attribute the change to a statement made by Geneva College’s Football Hall of Fame Coach Bo McMillin, who described opponent Georgia Tech’s powerful offense as “a golden tornado.” Other legends say the name comes from an actual tornado that supposedly ripped through Beaver Valley and took the gold-colored roof off of Old Main in the early 1900s. But regardless of where the nickname came from, students love the mascot Turbo and cheering on their Golden Tornadoes. My Generation Night (MGN) MGN is the annual student talent showcase described by many students as the most anticipated event of the year. The Big “G” Able to be seen from nearly everywhere on campus, a giant white “G” the size of a four-story building overlooks Reeve’s Field from a hillside across the Beaver River. Film Fest Students dress to the nines for this annual red-carpet event featuring movies written, directed, filmed and cast by Geneva students. The Victory Bell Once used to signal class changes, team captains now ring this bell in Old Main to announce their team’s victory.
