Global Ambassadors for Admissions

Ideal for: Alumni currently living outside the United States
Deadline to Apply: Ongoing

International prospective students rarely are able to visit the campus and observe what it is like to be a Macalester student. The Global Ambassadors pilot program seeks to connect Macalester alumni living outside of the US with prospective students. In most instances, prospective students simply wish to hear about your experiences at Macalester; Global Ambassadors may also be asked to interview prospective students and represent Macalester at college fairs.
