Why Macward Bound exists for first year students:
Past participants will overwhemlingly say that Macward Bound was an exceptional experience in many ways. By far, most will say that they felt like they had a 'jump-start', they felt a little better acclimated to Mac as Orientation began. Many have met friends with whom they have sustained relationships with over their years at Mac. Additionally, it's a great way to meet upper class students who are committed to sharing their experiences with you.
Advice to a first-year student:
Get out of your comfort zone. Talk to strangers. Ask a lot of questions. Explore your identity. Arrive to Mac prepared to be challenged. Wear a helmet when biking. Sign up for Macward Bound!
Favorite thing about Mac:
It's simply a great place to continually grow as a person...even if you're 'older' like me. Also, Garrison Keillor's independent bookstore is across the street from my office.
