Grinnell-in-Chicago: Dinner and Game Night with Grinnell College Students

Serving the common good is at the core of the Grinnell College mission and drives our strong community. It is thus with great care and concern for the health and wellness of our Chicago-area alumni, parents, and friends that we announce the cancellation of the Center for Careers, Life, and Service's "Workin' Chicago" industry exploration trek and any related alumni-student events.

The canceled events include the Dinner & Game Night at Dave and Busters on March 22 and the networking event at the Beatrix on March 24. All registrants for the Dave & Busters event will be reimbursed the cost of their ticket purchase.

We are disappointed that we are not able to gather as expected; however, social distancing and avoidance of unnecessary travel are both strong counters to the coronavirus (COVID-19). Canceling these events is a proactive measure that supports the wellbeing of our Grinnell community members.
