Media Relations

The Grinnell College media relations team works directly with media to increase understanding and support of the College among prospective students, alumni and parents, and other constituents. We work with reporters from all types of media, and from all over the U.S. and around the world.


EMERGENCY PROCEDURES: In the case of an emergency, in which an ambulance, law enforcement, or the fire department are needed, Dial 9-1-1 to reach the Poweshiek County Sheriff's Department. Be prepared to give your location on campus, including the building name, floor number and room number and/or the address. Do not hang up until instructed to do so. You will be asked for your name and the nature of your call. The nature of the emergency will determine how the call is dispatched. While the call is being dispatched, you may hear tones on your phone.

Creative Computing Lab

Creative Computing Lab, Technology Services Desk, and Training Lab in the Forum

The Creative Computing Lab (CCL) in the Forum supports media-intensive computing, creative projects, data representation, and research and provides a showcase for campus projects using new media technologies.

The After Hours Technology Services Desk and a PC/Mac equipped 15-station training lab are accessed through the Creative Computing Lab.

A portion of the CCL is devoted to comfortable, informal seating including a "data bar" with wireless Internet access and self-serve, a media-oriented "living room" for the campus.

The wooden booths and white wire chairs were retained from the Forum Grill operation; booths have received a modest update in the form of laptop plug-ins.

We hope the Creative Computing Lab draws people in, promotes a collaborative atmosphere, and enhances awareness of the facility and media-based projects.

If you are interested in reserving the CCL or the Training Room please contact Conference Operations at 269-3235.
