    Macalester is a place for the open-minded, who want to explore outside of their comfort zone, personally and academically. Being a small school, students can easily get to know their professors and peers, and work in depth on longer projects. The Minnesota climate can take some getting used to, but the twin cities are a great hub for food and entertainment.

    At Macalester I have found a loving and supportive community, challenging and rigorous academics and more opportunities than I ever could have dreamed of. I have learned about the world around me and about myself at Mac and have developed meaningful relationships with my peers, my bosses (work study) and my professors. Campus is beautiful and the Twin Cities are a wonderful place to study and grow.

    Macalester is intellectually engaging and challenging. It emphasizes internationalism and community engagement, but it often falls down when it comes to commitment to its progressive values.

    Macalester creates an environment that is tolerant and inclusive. It's student population is small enough for professors to be open to students, but large enough to sponsor groups focused on a wide array of activities. The conversations that take place are substantive and thought-provoking.
