Rinal Ray '04 is August's Macbassador of the month. This young alumna goes above and beyond in supporting current Macalester students.

She is one of the youngest hosts in Macalester's Students of Color/Multiracial Student host family program where she spends time with new students and helps introduce them to the Twin Cities community. Last November, she presented at Seniors Career Networking night about her own career path and the value of maintaining good relationships. She also served on her class's 5-year reunion committee.

"Macalester has been a strong force and foundation for not only my professional, but also my personal life," she said. "The education I received at Mac has opened many doors and the friendships I made are sustaining for me. Much of who I am today would not have been, but for Mac. I am grateful for my college education and experience and am vested in facilitating that experience for current and future Mac do-ers!"

On top of the volunteering she does, Rinal has given to the Annual Fund every year since she graduated, demonstrating her commitment to supporting the excellent Macalester experience that benefits all students.
