Lilly House Porch Gatherings - Summer 2014

With the busy school year behind you, summer is the perfect time to reflect on some of life's big questions.

Join us for dessert on the porch of the Lilly House (196 Vernon Street) throughout the summer for connection and conversation on important issues facing Macalester students.

RSVP here  for these gatherings - so we are sure to have enough dessert for all!

Local or Global? Vocational Choices in a Complex World - Wednesday, July 23rd ~ 7:00pm-8:00pm  

PiesUndividedLifeMany Macalester students struggle with what type of impact is most ethical. Should they only work locally? Is there a place for first world individuals in social change outside the U.S.? How do we choose a path amidst the complications that arise when we attempt to do good work? Come listen to how two women negotiated their vocation by taking very different paths in working with refugees
