Connie Coleman grew up in Malcom, Iowa — just 20 minutes from Grinnell! Connie has been a welcoming face to all students, greeting them as they enter the Marketplace Dining Hall, go to check their mail, or use the elevators in the Joe Rosenfield ’25 Center. Working the Information Desk on the first floor, Connie shares directions around campus, lends supplies to the neighboring game room, and brightens students’ days with a friendly greeting.
The best part of working at Grinnell College for Connie is the opportunity to interact with students from all over the world.
Connie’s main responsibilities fall under the Student Activities office. She helps to set up events in the Joe Rosenfield ’25 Center and provides information to students and campus visitors. Connie also supervises the student workers at the Information Desk.
The Information Desk is located on the first floor of the Joe Rosenfield ‘25 center, right outside the Dining Hall. The desk is staffed Monday through Thursday from 6:30 a.m. to midnight, Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 2 a.m., Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 2 a.m., and Sunday from 10:30 a.m. to midnight while school is in session. You can stop by or call 641-269-3715 for assistance.
