Setting her own course.
Dakota is exploring her academic interests as she decides on a major. She’s involved in campus life by living in the Spanish Language House tying her academic interests into her residential experience. Her leadership skills are being honed through her involvement with Posse, a leadership program backed by Grinnell’s commitment to social responsibility through our financial aid in practice (about 85 percent of Grinnell students receive scholarships or grants).
Students like Dakota come to Grinnell knowing that once accepted the promise of a Grinnell education will be fulfilled.
[I came here from LA as a first generation college student. I am so grateful to be here – Grinnell has surpassed my expectations.]
