Welcome, New Grinnellians

Welcome to Grinnell College! We’re excited to welcome you to campus!

We are looking forward to getting to know you and having the opportunity to work with you over the next few years. New Student Orientation (NSO) is a series of activities for students and families to help with a successful transition to the College. This website will help you accomplish all the tasks you’ll need to complete before, and shortly after, you arrive on campus.

Move-in and New Student Orientation (NSO) 2018 will begin on Friday, August 24 and conclude on Wednesday, August 29. Classes will start on Thursday, August 30. Feel free to contact our office with any questions that you might have. Enjoy your summer, and get excited for your next four years at Grinnell!

Incoming students with the class of 2022 will be given access to an incoming student checklist and our private GrinnellShare website in mid-May 2018.
