Why Do You Love Grinnell?

    S graduated from Grinnell a couple years back, and I still love the school. Lots of reasons - the people, students and faculty, the location, facilities (who wouldn't love an undulating wall of glass - the new student center)? I'm always trying to get kids in our area (east coast) to consider it. It's not for everyone, but what an incredible place if it tickles your fancy. I think if a student wants a small LAC, they should apply and see what their choices are come spring.

    I am from L.A., I'm a white male, and I'm a little on the close minded side. Would I like this school?

    jupton10, why are you close minded at such a young age?? do you enjoy being surprised? good academic experiences tend to open one's eyes, as the saying goes 'a mind is like a parachute, it only works when it's open.' good schools like grinnell will try to stretch your mind, open your eyes, and encourage rigorous thinking. . . .plus, i think there is a fair amount of fun and comaraderie involved.

    Jupton--If you are, in fact, on the "close minded side," then you need a school like Grinnell. :)
