Alumni Virtual Events

The Office of Development and Alumni Relations collaborates with alumni, regional network planning committees, students, parents, and friends to host virtual events for the Grinnell community. As with all events hosted by our office, our goal is to gather Grinnellians together for fun, learning, and a shared sense of community.

The format of the events below may vary depending on the content and purpose of the event. Every event will list the technology platform being used (Cisco webex, Zoom, etc.) and we encourage you to download that platform in advance of the event.

Also, in these uncertain times, events may need to be postponed or adapted if a host becomes ill or if circumstances change. We appreciate your flexibility as we work through these things together.

Do come even if you can't bring anything—we will have extra food so there will be plenty for everyone. Getting to spend time with you is the most important thing!
Feel free to bring camp chairs, coolers, and yard games.


There is a $6 car entry fee that will be paid for by Grinnell College. Just mention Toben Galvin's name when pulling in as he's a resident.

We look forward to seeing you!
