Alumni Association

Alumni Association

The Alumni Association of Grinnell College was established in 1879 with 151 charter members. Today the association, headed by the Alumni Council, includes the more than 20,000 active class members living across the United States and around the world.  Alumni volunteers — class agents, class fund directors, class committees, regional planning committees, alumni admission representatives, and career development volunteers — all work to support the College. The College provides its alumni with such services as The Grinnell Magazine, coordination of regional activities, promotion of class and affinity reunions, alumni awards, and class letters. The College also offers an online directory to encourage alumni to get in contact with each other.

The Student Alumni Association (SAA) is a student-run group that strives to instill in students a lifelong connection to the College, to facilitate interaction between all Grinnellians, and to raise student awareness about Grinnell’s history and traditions. SAA fosters an atmosphere that guides students in their transition to life after Grinnell, bestowing a sense of pride in their alma mater that will carry over to their chosen careers. To join SAA, send an email to saa@grinnell.edu.
