Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2013

I had an amazing experience at Macalester. From the time I arrived on campus, I felt like a sponge, soaking up new ideas, ways of thinking, and experiences from my professors, the college staff, and from my peers. I was able to get involved in a variety of activities that interested me and was lucky enough to have opportunities to put what I was learning in the classroom into action in the Twin Cities, and then to reflect on those experiences with other students in a way that deepened my learning.

Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2013

Phenomenal school where I learned a lot, but especially learned how to think critically. Good focus on interdisciplinary learning, global citizenship, and engagement in local communities. Academically very rigorous but also does a good job of supporting students.

Macalester was a really great place to spend 4 years - St. Paul is great for everything, the environment is welcoming and accepting and progressive, and the education I received was top notch, though very difficult, and rewarding.

Degree: Chemistry

My experience at Macalester was amazing! Macalester provides students numerous opportunities to pursue their passions while at the same time offering a top-rate education. Personally, I was able to continue my football career while studying both Biology and Chemistry to future my academic career.

Degree: English Language and Literature/Letters, Other
Graduation Year: 2008

Mac is a great place for students who want to work hard, but also be involved in a community. Very international school with people from all over the world and the U.S. One of the things I loved about Mac was the absolute lack of judgment and competition; even though the students are incredibly smart and talented there is very little "sabotaging" or degrading language/behavior. Everyone is very supportive and just wants their friends to do well. The campus is beautiful, but compact. It is not a sprawling campus, but is very green and has many trees. The Macalester/Groveland neighborhood is more geared towards family (quieter) but the U of MN is only a short bus/metro ride away if you're looking for college-type bars.
