Students at the Amana Community Kitchen

Tour Program

The Rosenfield Program sponsors study tours bringing students from various majors together. The study tours offer students a window into how the theme manifests itself in private, public, and non-governmental organizations. Bringing current students together with alumni, the tours create bonds across multiple generations of Grinnellians.
