Hey Class of 2021!

Here are a few things to know before Commencement.  You do not need to buy Caps, Gowns and Tassels this year.  They are being provided by the Commencement Committee.  Watch for their communication to you. Below this annoucement are links to purchase Graduation Announcements and Diploma Frames.  If you want an extra tassel, those are available to purchase on our site.  Congratulations!

Textbooks for Spring 2

No matter where you are, you can get your textbooks from the Pioneer Bookshop. If you are in Grinnell, you can order them from our online store and pick them up at the Pioneer Bookshop, 933 Main Street. If you are living on campus, we can send your order to the mailroom.  If you are learning remotely, we will ship your books to you. You might prefer to buy a digital book and get access right away. Click on "Textbooks", choose Spring II 2021 and then your classes. You can see what books are required and choose between, new, used or digital (when available). When you place your order, choose "Buy Online, Pick Up in Store" or "Deliver to Campus" for your shipping preference. If you are learning remotely, choose Postal Service.   Here is the direct link to the textbook pages.  https://grinnell.verbacompare.com/
