In addition to providing students safe, comfortable living spaces, the residence halls at Grinnell College foster a sense of community, and provide a living and learning environment which complements their academic experience. Within these halls, Grinnellians learn to practice self-governance and incorporate the philosophy in their daily lives. Student volunteers fill the roles of Student Advisors, Hall Social Coordinators and Hall Wellness Coordinators, and are charged with building community and serving as a resource for their residents.
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.

SHACS is pleased to announce that A.J. Williams will be joining our team in July as psychologist and training coordinator. A.J. comes to Grinnell from Oregon State University. A.J.’s experience in an APA-approved training site like OSU will be a great boon for us as we design and launch a pre-doctoral psychology internship program. In addition, the expertise and diversity she brings to our staff will serve our students tremendously.
