Macward Bound Leaders 2011
Samantha Baker, '13, Hartford, WI
Why I am a MB Leader:
I am a Macward Bound leader because as a senior, I want to get to know freshmen and be able to help them with things I wish I had help with freshman year. I think the transition to college can be a tough one and I want to help students hit the ground running at Macalester.
Advice to a first year:
Go for it! Whatever it is - new org, a new subject in school, a new crush, a new friend. Just go and do! The beginning of the first year is not a time to hold back in your ambitions, it's a time to put yourself out there more than you ever have before.
Favorite thing about Mac:
I love that Mac is constantly challenging me. I have been challenged on my viewpoints in classes, my skills in organizations, my lifestyle when I was abroad. I love that I cannot take things for granted at Mac, other than the fact that I am constantly challenged. And I love a challenge!
Involvements at Mac/twin cities:
Mac Program Board, Mac Weekly, Adopt a Grandparent, Volunteer for Cedar Cultural Center, Mac Yoga Club, MacPics, Art History Club...that's all I can remember right now!
