Double CHIP and a Grinnellian in her own right
"I am the daughter of two Grinnell graduates. For as long as I can remember, my parents have been bombarding me with tales of engaging professors, challenging classes, and a dynamic and intelligent student body. When it came time for me to pick a college for myself, Grinnell quickly became my top choice. My experience as a Grinnell student is rigorous and rewarding. I am receiving a wonderful education, and I constantly find myself surrounded by exciting opportunities. Campus is full of activities, and I even saw Joan Baez in concert in Herrick Chapel. I witness the talents of my fellow classmates through concerts, plays, and art exhibits. Grinnell makes it easy for me to get involved and explore my interests. I am so happy with my decision to become a second-generation Grinnellian."
