Discover Grinnell Programs – September 21 and October 5
The Office of Admission is gearing up for our annual Discover Grinnell Programs on Friday, September 21 and Friday, October 5, 2012. These programs are designed for prospective students and their families to experience the Grinnell College community. We make every effort to present a thoughtful and comprehensive picture of the academic, co-curricular, and extracurricular opportunities available to our students.
During the Discover Grinnell Programs, students are able to spend the night in one of the residence halls with a current student host, attend class, eat in the dining hall, and take a tour of campus. We also offer a variety of informational sessions featuring faculty, staff and current students.
We rely on the entire college community to make the Discover Grinnell Programs a success. We could not offer these programs without great cooperation and flexibility from all staff, faculty and current students. We would like to thank the entire Grinnell College community for generously hosting the prospective students and their families!
The Discover Grinnell Programs are coordinated by Jennifer Hirsch, Assistant Director of Admission and Coordinator of Campus Visits and Events, with a great deal of help from the rest of the Admission staff. We are always looking to further refine the program and welcome any questions or suggestions for the programs. Please contact Jennifer Hirsch (otottjen) with questions and comments.
Absentee Voting for the General Election
Tuesday, November 6, 2012
If you need or prefer to vote by absentee ballot for the general election, here is how to do it.
Go to the web-site of the Poweshiek County Auditor: www.poweshiekcounty.org/auditor1.htm
There you will find forms to request an absentee ballot and to register to vote in Poweshiek County. Down-load either or both forms as you may need them, fill them out and mail the completed form or forms to the Poweshiek County Auditor, P. O. Box 57, Montezuma, IA 50171. You can do this whenever it suits your schedule, including now; the Auditor generally mails out the absentee ballots around 20 September. Or you may simply drop your form or forms off at the Auditor's Office in the Court House in Montezuma.
It is a good idea to return your completed ballot promptly, especially if you are temporarily abroad in a place where the delivery of mail may be slow.
There will also be opportunities to vote at satellite early voting stations set up in various parts of the county, including Grinnell. These will be announced well in advance of the time and place of the stations. Voting at a satellite station is simply a variation of absentee voting: the voter fills out an absentee-ballot request, receives a ballot, and casts it.
In every instance, you must supply the address of your residence. If you wish to receive your ballot at a post-office box, that is OK, but giving that P. O. Box number as your residential address will not do.
Diana Dawley, the Poweshiek County Auditor, or one of her staff will be glad to answer any questions you may have at 641-623-5443.
