This weekend, Grinnellians welcome students’ families as young and old gather for our annual Family Weekend, Friday, Sept. 27–29, 2013.
Family Weekend 2013 gives families a chance to learn more about the College and town, meet their students’ friends, check out the dining hall, pick up Grinnell gear at the bookstore, sit in on classes, and visit informally with faculty.
Grinnell is a place where students take advantage of every opportunity they have, whether it’s attending one of the 500+ free annual events, performances, or symposia, participating in one of our 200+ student groups, making the most of our state-of-the-art athletic facilities, giving back with skill-enhancing service projects, or enjoying all-campus concerts, films, and social events organized entirely by students. At Grinnell, there is no end to what you can gain from — or bring to — our community.
Midwest Ultimate teams gather at Grinnell for popular annual Ultimate tournament.

Grinnell’s diverse and inclusive community isn’t just a warm and welcoming place to spend four years — it’s also an essential part of your education here. That’s because we all benefit when we seek to understand different viewpoints. Doing so requires us to examine, expand, and sometimes even challenge our own beliefs.
