Eight of the Best

"Since my career aspirations weren't solidified, I wanted somewhere that would give me room to explore a wide swath of interests, so I focused my search on small liberal arts colleges."

Noah Most '13, La Crosse, WI

Grinnell College is one of a group of eight highly selective, nationally recognized liberal arts colleges known as Eight of the Best.

  • Claremont McKenna College
  • Colorado College
  • Connecticut College
  • Grinnell College
  • Haverford College
  • Kenyon College
  • Macalester College
  • Sarah Lawrence College

The Deans of Admission of these Eight of the Best colleges invite you and your family to a reception held in select cities in the United States every spring and fall. Each college has something distinctive to offer. As a group, they place great value on student-faculty interaction, small classes, and challenging curricula. These colleges send a high percentage of graduates on to graduate and professional schools, and count among their alumnae/i leaders in virtually every field. This free program includes presentations on admission, financial aid, and each of the eight colleges. There is also ample opportunity to ask questions.
