Information Session for Admitted Students

Are you ready? We think you are.

Make the leap and join us for an information session to get an overview of Grinnell’s academic programs, career development services, internship and research opportunities, and so much more. All designed to help you succeed.

Our info sessions are usually rather personalized, but since you can't be here in person, we've provided the next best thing. Hear fourth-year students Maddy Smith and Ayyad Jacob share their unique stories about learning, life, and friendship at Grinnell.
