Grinnell College, one of the 25 members of the Iowa Association of Independent Colleges and Universities (IAICU), is proud to participate in the 2016 Iowa Private College Week (IPCW). Each year, IPCW hosts approximately 5,000 Iowa students and families, many of whom will visit the Grinnell College campus as part of their IPCW experience.
Tim Butterfield, assistant director of admission and coordinator of Iowa Private College Week for Grinnell College, says the weeklong program “offers students and families an informative snapshot of the Grinnellian experience. Iowa Private College Week is a great way for prospective students to experience Grinnell College and to discover what a liberal arts education offers, as well as to determine which of the participating institutions could be a good fit for their futures.”
During Iowa Private College Week, information sessions will be held daily on the Grinnell College campus at 9 a.m. Prospective students will then hear from faculty, staff, and current students before touring campus. Students may register for a Grinnell College or Iowa Private College Week campus visit. During the week, Casey’s General Stores provides 5-cents per gallon fuel discount coupons on campus to help defray travel costs. Additionally, students who visit at least three campuses and mail in an entry form are eligible to win a $500 bookstore voucher.
