NEW “Where the Hell Is Grinnell?” T-shirt

An earlier T-shirt’s answer to that question -- “Who the Hell Cares?” -– not only belittled the College’s location but offended many people in the community.  Martha Orlet ’15 and Aaron Juarez ’15 wanted to create an alternative shirt with a better answer. Martha and Aaron, board members of the Center for Prairie Studies, proposed the idea to the full board. Several conversations and artistic designs later, we are pleased to offer an alternative “Where the Hell is Grinnell?” T-shirt.
