The GIW Student Hanbook gives you basic information specific to the Grinnell-in-Washington DC program and should be used in conjunction with the OCS Handbook. The Handbook is most useful for students who are on the program or are preparing for the program. Students considering the program should generally refer to this website.
Additionally, students should purchase one or more travel guides on the Washington DC area.
Although this handbook is updated annually, there may be some information which is already out of date. Check the web and other resources if you have any questions concerning the validity of the information found in this handbook.
