Activity

Make an Origami Acorn

Together, our gifts help secure a bright financial future for the College. Supporting today’s students and future Grinnelliansis our ultimate goal. Our Scarlet & Give Back Day mascot, Scarlet the Squirrel, provides a great example of preparedness by collecting acorns for use now and in later times. Join us in celebrating the gifts we’ve received and will receive this year, by creating an origami acorn — a perfect representation of our commitment to preparing Grinnellians. Share your acorn on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and tag Grinnell College or use #GivingtoGrinnell.
