MY-owa Mapping Project

Did you know that nearly 93% of Grinnell students hail from out of state? With so much geographic diversity, it probably won't surprise you to learn that "What is there to do in Iowa?" ranks among our most frequently asked questions.

Beyond being ranked a top-15 state by U.S. News & World Report (2022), Iowa is home to a wide variety of educational, cultural, and natural attractions. But don’t take it from us: see what Grinnell students have discovered through their own explorations. Whether you’re from Des Moines or Dubai, we hope that this map will serve as a starting point for your own Iowa adventures.
