Grinnell College Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (3)
Grinnell College advertises itself as a premier liberal arts college; a place of free thought and high minded ideals where the students learn to take responsibility for themselves and the world. The students embrace these ideals, but then use social justice as an excuse to look down on those who do not share their worldview and self-governance as an excuse to behave irresponsibly in an environment which lacks real-world consequences.
It's a wonderful place to go to school. A true progressive liberal arts college that will change you for the rest of your life.
My college was definitely a unique place to attend - small, private, liberal arts college in the middle of Iowa. Hyper-liberal in both politics and social policies (not for anyone conservative in either respect - frustrating as a student who abhors drugs and loud drunkenness), but generally great professors who care a lot for their students and their subjects. Definitely not for anyone who is interested in professional studies, however; "college for careers" mentality is actively looked down upon.
