The publications team designs, edits, and manages a range of official Grinnell College publications. These documents keep students, alumni, parents, prospective students, and friends abreast of College and alumni news.
The following are examples of the kinds of work we help create.
The Grinnell Magazine is the College's flagship publication, published quarterly for alumni, students, parents, faculty, and friends of the College.
We select the contents of the Magazine to stimulate thought and discussion, to demonstrate the range of opinions and activities on the campus and in its broader community, and to provide news about the College and its alumni.
g-mail is a short newsletter emailed quarterly to alumni, highlighting campus and alumni news. Stories span a breadth of interests, promoting major achievements of the College community.
This full-length newsletter is written by Grinnell Athletics staff. It features action-packed photography and seasonal Grinnell sports stories, scores, and highlights.
Grinnell News Online
Alumni, parents, and friends of the College receive Grinnell News Online via e-mail. The newsletter presents stories with recent media buzz, including athletics updates, campus events, and alumni news. It also draws stories from Grinnell in the News, which highlights external media coverage of the College.
Exit 182 is the Student Alumni Association's quarterly publication. Students craft articles and illustrations depicting the Grinnell student experience in all its startling complexity. Exit 182 offers alumni the chance to stay connected to campus in a fundamentally personal way.
Ins & Outs, a major publication from the Office of Admission and Financial Aid, gives prospective students a glimpse of the vibrant Grinnell student community. Students write and illustrate this newsletter, telling stories and giving advice to their future fellow-Grinnellians.
Academic departments and campus offices often distribute information on facilities and programs via a Environmental Education Center Brochure, like this one for the Environmental Education Center at CERA. This is a compact, cost-effective way of combining graphics and text to convey a message.
We can send informational postcards to any group or audience. Postcards deliver a gentle reminder and key facts to event participants, or keep interested parties in the Grinnell loop.
Event posters are a clear, graphic way to provide information to a range of audiences. Professional-looking and ideal for both on- and off-campus advertising, posters leave a lasting impression on many viewers.
