Happy New Year!
Join us for exciting events in 2017.
Jan. 4, 2017 — Thank you for all you have done for Grinnell College in 2016. We want to take an opportunity to let you know about a few events we have planned for 2017 that we’re especially excited about.
- Pioneer Women’s Weekend will be held April 21-22. Before 1972’s Title IX legislation, most women at Grinnell were only allowed to complete in athletics for the love of the game. This weekend will honor the women whose efforts to compete — at the club level or through intramurals — paved the way for generations of proud Pioneer women athletes.
- We will, of course, host Alumni College starting May 31 and the 138th annual Alumni Reunion Weekend starting June 1. Be looking for registration to open on Wednesday, Feb. 1.
- Grinnell’s third annual Global Day of Service will coincide with the College’s 171st birthday. Alumni-organized projects will be planned this spring and held in early June. Stay tuned for information about specific activities that will happen across the country and around the world.
- Our first-ever Multicultural Alumni Reunion will be held Nov. 10–11. We’re excited to be partnering the Multicultural Leadership Council and a variety of student groups on campus to organize this special event.
