The Dining Hall

I didn't even recognize him when I arrived on campus. My own kid, whom I had come to take home for the summer. Sailed right past him to the Plat du Jour station, where I asked a woman with her hair tucked under her cap, "Is Benjamin Dodd working tonight?"

"Ben Dodd?"

She leafed through a clipboard and led me back to the pasta bar section, right next to the Pizza Parlor where a girl shoved pizzas into a flaming brick oven with a long-handled metal paddle.

He spent a brief but fruitful time at the College, where he engaged the lives of students, townspeople, and beyond. Shortly after Glenn Leggett became president, there was an all-campus convocation featuring an extraordinary performance of the Verdi Requiem, led by a not-yet-famous young conductor.

I have just finished my second cycle at the "Brain Injury Day Treatment Program" at the Rusk Institute of NYU Medical Center.

Before I started this training, I was unaware and didn't think I had any problems. I thought I could go right back to college. My family disagreed. At the time, I was arguing a lot and said hurtful things. I never wanted to, but I didn't know how to stop. This convinced me to come to Rusk and learn about my brain injury.

Recently, on a sunny September afternoon Jim Hess saw his worlds collide — sort of. Hess, the new director of alumni relations at Grinnell College, was in Washington, D.C., his former home, at a picnic for Grinnell alumni and students.

Hess has spent the last 18 years in the nation's capital working at George Washington University, most recently as executive director in the Office of University Events. He moved to Grinnell in June with his wife, Kirsten, and their 3-year-old daughter, Madeleine.

Tenure

Tenure: on its face, not the loveliest of words. But there are few as sweet in the ears of an early-career academic. Tenure signifies job security, the acceptance of one's senior colleagues, a feeling of belonging and - perhaps most importantly - support for a life's work.

The Innovators

Perhaps we've all had a flash of inspiration that we were positive would lead to success: the million-dollar idea, the can't-miss business concept, the surefire solution to a vexing problem.

While most of us never get those great ideas off the drawing board, the Grinnellians on these pages have turned their visions into reality. From part-time businesses to companies with a global reach, they've found willing buyers for their innovative approaches.
