I would imagine the faculty as well. Look at the census figures - there is a difference. Having grown up in Mercer County, unless someone is seeking small town/rural life, I see no point in trying to convince people used to the city to move there. Slippery Rock might be smaller, but when you have a rather large university attached, it is going to make a difference in that area. Plus they would be closer to Pittsburgh, Cranberry, Butler, a few miles further south of lake effect snow. If I needed to live that close to Grove City, I would live in Slippery Rock.

"be prepared for anything (with a pile of exclamation points)? What would there to be prepared for? Low crime? Many college educated people? Nice sidewalks that are maintained? Clean air? The vibe of that place isn't like some Appalachian backwoods dirt road, with tons of old rusty lifted pickups and rebel flags flying. Be prepared for a pleasant town where people would say hello while walking by and people acting civil. What a strange thread.

Slippery Rock over Grove City? Wow, that surprises me. Slippery Rock was always just an intersection to me that I had to drive through to get to Butler. Very car dependent.

Agree, it is closer to Pittsburgh, Cranberry, Butler......by what, 6-7 miles. Not enough to tip the scales.

Diversity in rural Western PA can be found at the Grove City Outlet Mall! Not kidding.

No no... didn't mean that in a negative sense... I meant that more in the sense of hustle bustle of an urban setting that would be missing here..

Yeah, Grove City is greater than Slippery Rock except for the fact that North Country is in Slippery Rock. Take North Country out of that equation and Slippery Rock is... well an intersection. Grove City is much nicer. I was just at North Country about 2 hours ago. I do love that place.
