New Student Orientation
Welcome new students, families, and guests! We are so excited to welcome you to the Grinnell community.
New Student and Family and Guest Orientations for the 2018-19 school year will officially begin with move-in on Friday, August 24, 2018.
We are currently working on our 2018 schedule, but take a look at our complete 2017 NSO Schedule to see what to expect.
During New Student Orientation (NSO), incoming students have the opportunity to spend time with lots of people who will be important to their time at the College. Students will learn about the college community and its values, important resources, the town of Grinnell, and much more.
Download the Grinnell College Events app (Google Play, Android Apps, App Store) to check out the most up-to-date student schedule. The NSO Schedule will be published through the app in May.
Family & Guests
We would like to invite you to participate in our family and guest orientation program where you will be introduced to the campus and the many resources and services available to your students. Separate from the student program, the family and guest program is tailored for your specific needs and interests. You will hear from faculty, staff and administration about the ways you can support your student’s academic and personal success during his or her college years.
