    You can do just about anything here. From volunteering, to movie nights, to parties, to nude streaks. Find your place and don't be afraid of doing something you like.

    There are a lot of parties. The campus does a nice job with a variety of activities though.

    There are always events on campus from parties to T-shirt making, from bowling trips to ice cream study breaks. There is something for everyone. So if you're not a party person you will never feel like that is the only thing to do to have fun.

    1) There is a themed all-campus Harris party in the Harris Center every other weekend or so. Popular parties include Disco, Lady Gaga, and Mary B. James, a cross-dressing party. 2) Grinnell provides occasional trips to Des Moines or Iowa City for mall shopping. 3) You can watch a movie in the town's small (but very cheap theater) and enjoy other charming quirks that the tiny town (of only 10,000) has to offer. 3) You can also enjoy the perks of a new, state-of-the-art gym, as well as a decently sized game room with games like air hockey and pool.

    The town offers little to do for fun. If you're not a fan of getting shit-faced, there's not much to do.

    Try out the local Dairy Barn, or even its franchise-y counterpart Dairy Queen, to cool off on hot days. Take walks, go out to eat downtown, or watch movies in any one of the many lounges across campus.

    Hang out on Mac Field, party, spend time with great friends. Drinking is definitely prevalent on campus, but it's no big deal if you don't drink.
