Alumni Recitation Hall (ARH)

The Alumni Recitation Hall contains classrooms for classes in the Social Studies and Humanities, as well as faculty offices for departments of foreign languages and Classics. The facilities also include a 158-seat screening auditorium, the multipurpose Meredith AudioVisual Center, and an additional computer lab with multiple printers for both classroom and general student use.

ARH is wheelchair accessible. An elevator at the south end makes it easy to reach the auditorium and accessible restrooms on the third floor. Automatic door operators are located on the southeast and southwest sides, and accessible parking is available along Park Street.

Alternate Language Study Option (ALSO)

The Alternate Language Study Option (ALSO) program is designed for self-motivated and disciplined students who want to learn a language not taught through the regular curriculum at Grinnell. The program provides a two-semester sequence of beginning level self-instructional study in a variety of languages, including but not limited to Italian, Portuguese, Korean, Hindi, Czech, and Kiswahili. The specific languages offered depend on the number of students interested and the availability of materials and trained tutors.
