Located on the Iowa prairie, Grinnell College is a national and international liberal arts college committed to graduating students. Grinnell offers a decidedly local approach to a global education, where the focus is both on nurturing a strong sense of community while encouraging students to explore and understand the world. Grinnell students are affectionately known as “Grinnellians.” With a strong history of egalitarianism, Grinnell was the first college west of the Mississippi River to admit African-Americans and women. True to its liberal arts focus, Grinnell has a special first-semester writing tutorial, modeled after Oxford University's program, but does not require anything else. The more than 30 tutorials, limited to 12 students each class, help to enhance critical thinking, writing and discussion skills of the students. The students at Grinnell College usually determine their own course of study with help from faculty. Strong departments include the natural sciences and foreign languages, including German and Russian. It is rare to find classes with more than 50 students, and the vast majority of classes have 30 or fewer. The Grinnell Pioneers compete in the Division III athletic conference, and the men's basketball team has won national attention. Several teams have brought home championships recently, including men's cross-country, tennis, and men's and women's swimming, and women's soccer.
