Why I am a MB Leader:
I've started each year at Macalester either participating in or leading Macward Bound, and I couldn't imagine beginning my last year here without this incredible program!
Advice to a first year:
Be open to new and different experiences but stay true to yourself and enjoy meeting new people!
Favorite thing about Mac:
I really treasure the close relationships I have formed with friends, professors and campus staff in the past three years. I find myself smiling at random moments while walking through campus and being able to say hi to almost everyone I pass. It is really special to know that the people we are surrounded by at Mac will support us and encourage us to reach for the stars and create ambitious and achievable dreams. And of course, the swings near the Leonard Center have greatly helped late night study sessions!
Involvements at Mac/twin cities:
I'm part of Macalester First Aid, MCEMS (Macalester College Emergency Medical Service) and Outing Club
