As you take your extraordinary journey, you’ll have extraordinary resources along the way.

Life is bigger than a series of jobs. As a Grinnellian, you’ll contribute to the greater good in ways that are deeply meaningful to you. That’s why at Grinnell your personal, professional, and civic aspirations are all part of the same conversation.

As a student, you’ll visit the Center for Careers, Life, and Service (CLS) to start talking through what you want your life to become and to connect with ways of getting there. You’ll make discoveries, develop new insights, gain experience, broaden your network, and, ultimately, like the many Grinnellians before you, confidently go forth to lead a life of meaning and purpose.
