Finding your friends

New this year on our mobile website, we will be live updating "Who's Here" lists of alumni who have arrived for the weekend. Each name will link to the person's MacDirect profile, through which you can send a message or connect via social media. You can also see who has registered to attend on our "Who is Attending" pages.

Dietary restrictions

If you have registered for a meal throughout the weekend and did not include dietary restrictions, please contact Carley Davenport, 651-696-6752 or cdavenpo@macalester.edu. We do our best to accommodate dietary needs, but being aware of them in advance of the weekend allows us more time to prepare.

Bring your water bottle

Due to a new sustainability policy to reduce the use of disposable plastic water bottles on campus, bottled water is not available for purchase on campus. We will have water coolers placed throughout the campus and also have The Watering Hole, a tent located next to the Red Cross Tent near the main lawn, with plenty of water for you to refill your water bottle.
