About 85 percent of our students live in a residence hall, language or project house, or off-campus house — so they really get to know one another well. Residence halls are small; most house 50–60 students of all class years, majors, and backgrounds, making each hall floor feel like a big, diverse family. A residence life professional staff person and more than 70 student staff members work to make sure you feel right at home. Residence halls offer a range of rooming situations, ranging from singles to quads to mini-apartments with their own kitchens.

When I was awarded a spot in Seventeen Magazine’s Freshman 15 (a group 15 girls chosen from around the country to document their college experiences), I was ecstatic — but unsure how my participation would be received on campus. After all, I thought, Grinnell College students read The New York Times, The Atlantic, and Mother Earth News, not Seventeen. For Seventeen, I produce weekly written and video blogs, answer reader questions, and occasionally get featured in the magazine.
