Class of 2014 Admitted Student Profile
Grinnell College football players Ryan Boehm '10 and Marquis Bradley '11 have been named to the All-Midwest Conference Second Team for the 2009 campaign.
Boehm, a repeat All-MWC selection after earning honorable mention status in 2008, was named to the squad at a special teams spot and Bradley as a linebacker.
In a series of meetings I have had last year with the larger Grinnell family — including open office hours, lunches with faculty and administrators, and conversations with students — the single most popular question has been some variation of “What is the College doing about environmental and sustainability issues?”
- If it’s been snowing for days and the thermometer hits negative degrees, there really is nothing better than just going to sleep and dreaming of tropical places.
- Go cross-country skiing
- There aren’t too many places to downhill ski, but there is definitely enough snow for cross-country skiing.
- Write in the snow with food dye
- It’s creative, looks pretty, and is a lot more fun than complaining about all the white stuff.
- Go sledding
