Macalester is a fun and unique place where you are bound to encounter someone with the same interests. It's a challenging school and schedule, but worth the effort. There's really a place for everyone at this school, it's liberal and open-minded.
Autumn from Cleveland, OH
Macalester College is comprised of a student body that is passionate about many different issues and subjects. Its academic rigor is significant, but both the professors and the other students work to help each other succeed. With its location in Saint Paul, MN students rarely lack for things to occupy their time with.
