Class of 2025
In August Grinnell welcomed 472 first-year students from 46 different states and 31 countries. A welcome ceremony included the presentation of commemorative medallions that pay tribute to an important event in the College’s history. On June 10, 1846, James J. Hill of the Iowa Band laid a silver dollar on the table at a meeting of the Iowa College Association, declaring it to be the seed of an endowment to support outstanding students and faculty. The medallions include an engraving of the oldest building on campus, Goodnow Hall, on one side and the students’ graduation year on the other.
