What Students Are Saying

4.16 Average Rating
There is certainly a strong push in every field, but Grinnell gives you a little wiggle room and professors and very understanding.
Yazan from Chicago, IL
The class I visited while I was at the Admitted Students program, an Art History class, was absolutely amazing. The small size and knowledgeable professor made me excited for college!

I accidentally forgot my phone interview & had to reschedule it, but they were totally understanding and eventually admitted me with a super generous scholarship!
Anna from Westby, WI
It's not an easy college by any means. I took classes at it while in high school. Although not the most difficult, work is required.

They like to challenge their students here!
Claire from Cedar Rapids, IA
Courses at Grinnell are very challenging, but the professors are extremely supportive and resources to help you out abound.

Grinnell will gift you with many a late night, but the interesting courses and excellent professors are worth the work .
