Past Participant Experiences



past participants on their macward bound experience

"The best memories come from unexpected moments, and Macward Bound sets the groundwork for plenty. Cards underneath a make-shift roof, small waterfalls spouting off all sides, or cooking up an experimental dessert (and risking the rest of our chocolate by doing so), Macward Bound creates those opportunities - and some friendships along the way."

"Macward bound helped me get moved in, comfortable with campus, and settled with a group of friends and other friendly faces before the rush of orientation began."

“Macward Bound was the perfect introduction to Macalester. Making friends with a bunch of nerdy-cool kids for half a week in the middle of the woods prepared me to make friends with a bunch of nerdy-cool kids for four years in the middle of the city.”
