Visit Sessions

Information Session and Campus Tour

We offer hour-long information sessions conducted by an admission counselor Monday - Friday at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. The information session provides an overview of Grinnell's academic programs, career development services, internship and research opportunities, admission requirements, and need- and merit-based financial aid opportunities. The information session is followed by an hour-long campus tour, which illuminates Grinnell's individuality through exploration of the academic buildings, residence halls, athletic facilities, social venues, and dining hall.

Class visits and overnight stays on campus are available for high school seniors during most of the academic year, excluding Saturdays, holidays, exam periods, etc.

Saturday Sessions

The Office of Admission is open for daily visits on most Saturdays in the fall semester and in April. Saturday visits include an information session and a student-led campus tour, and lunch in the Marketplace Dining Hall. Prospective students are also able to schedule interviews.

Summer Visits

Although the best time to visit is when classes are in session, we are happy to welcome you to campus during the summer. While class visits and faculty appointments are unavailable, you can still tour campus, attend an information session, and have an admission interview (available to rising seniors).
