Eight of the Best

 

Quotable Grinnell

"Since my career aspirations weren't solidified, I wanted somewhere that would give me room to explore a wide swath of interests, so I focused my search on small liberal arts colleges." Noah Most '13, La Crosse, WI

Grinnell College is one of a group of eight highly selective, nationally recognized liberal arts colleges known as Eight of the Best.

Major Declaration

When the student declares a major, he or she is responsible for securing an adviser in the major department and completing a Declaration of Major form which includes a comprehensive four-year plan. Usually this planning is done with both support from the first adviser and consultation with the new adviser in the major department. As the new adviser in the major department you should feel free to ask the student to revise the plan before signing off on it. Of course, plans should be free from technical errors: the course decisions and credit counts should allow the student to graduate!
