Athletics at Grinnell

What does it mean to be a scholar-athlete?

For Grinnell athletes, it’s more than a team. It’s a mindset. Because here, it’s not just about the sport you play or the score you obtain — it’s about thinking, leading, and living like a Grinnellian.

    When it comes to balancing academics and athletics, we’re up for the challenge.

    At Grinnell College, our student-athletes are top-tier competitors. But they’re also curious researchers, cross-disciplinary thinkers, and global citizens. Here, your intellectual growth matters just as much as your batting average, and your critical thinking skills and your split times hold equal worth.

Do you have the spirit of a Grinnellian?

Our institution has a long history of developing thinkers and leaders in sports, technology, scholarship, and culture. So when you wear the Honor G on your uniform, you’re not just telling the world that you’re a Grinnell College athlete. You’re showing everyone that you’re an athlete who competes with both integrity and intensity. One who sees the big picture, understands what it takes to achieve it, and leads others there. One who approaches the future equipped with the confidence and skills to make it better.
