Family Weekend

New 2022 Family Weekend Dates
Nov. 4–6, 2022

Dear Grinnell families,

I am writing to communicate a change to the scheduled date for Family Weekend. Due to an unintended overlap of major campus events, Family Weekend will be held Nov. 4–6, 2022. Due to the limited number of hotel rooms in and near Grinnell, this change will allow us to deliver a Family Weekend program that will accommodate and engage all who wish to attend. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

If adjusting your travel arrangements is not possible, you are welcome to visit during the originally scheduled weekend. While there will be no formal programming, there are a variety of campus activities to engage you and your student.

We hope you can join us on Nov. 4–6th to celebrate Family Weekend and we look forward to welcoming you! A schedule of program events and more information for the new dates is forthcoming and will be posted on this website. Questions regarding Family Weekend may be directed to the Student Involvement Office at 641-269- 3714

Thank you!

Kind regards,

Sarah Moschenross, Vice President of Student Affairs
