Let's Tell Our Story


Let's Tell Our Story

Would you help me tell other people what you love about Grinnell? Over the past couple months, we have transitioned to a new website and are planning to expand the content in the new "Things To Do" section in the coming year to help  tell Grinnell's story digitally. But to do this well, I need your help.

Here are some ideas I have for things I want to add to this section to expand it in 2016 - read through the list and see if there is something you are personally passionate about:

  • List of the Top Desserts In Grinnell
  • Progressive Dinner Date Night Itinerary
  • List of Famous Grinnellians
  • Exploring Our Parks Ideas
  • Experiencing Local Foods
  • Biking/Running/Walking Routes
  • Best Places To Eat With Kids
  • List of the Top Things To Do On Campus If You Aren't A Student
  • Girl's Day Out In Grinnell Itinerary
  • Ideas For Exploring Nature
  • Fishing & Hunting Suggestions
  • Garden Tours

So, was there something on the list that caught your eye? Or made you think of another idea? There are so many great things to talk about, but I can't tell our story all by myself. Not only do I not have time, but I am not an expert in all of these areas. 

If you have experience or passion for a specific topic, would you reply to this email and let me know? I'm looking for volunteers who would be willing to do things like write blog posts, create itineraries, map out walking/running/biking routes, and take photos/video. You could write one, you could write many. You can be a great writer, or someone that has the ideas (I'm happy to write/edit). Is this something you'd be willing to help me with? Reply to this email and let me know.
