My Latest Obsession

In this ongoing series, Collin Calvert '13 asks students what their latest obsession is.

Scavenger Hunt

The MSCS department hosted the the third annual C*SM*S Scavenger Hunt. Students solved a series of eight puzzles whose answers led students to the hidden location of the next puzzle on the Macalester campus.

Courtyard Party

Residential Life staff hosted a courtyard party for dorm residents, complete with pizza, smores, hot chocolate and the DJ club.

Kagin Ice Cream Social

Kagin Commons held its annual Ice Cream Social & Open House. Staff, tutors, counselors, and fellow students from the MAX Center, Multicultural Life, Internship Programs, Sustainability, and Career Development Center, were there to greet and serve ice cream until it ran out.

Nice Ride Dedication

Mac just keeps getting greener. The latest fuel-saving innovation added a station for the Twin Cities public bike-sharing program Nice Ride. The program started last year in Minneapolis, where it enjoyed great success. The station was officially dedicated with a ribbon cutting ceremony in mid-September 2011.

Opening Convocation

Former Vice President Walter Mondale ’50 and A Prairie Home Companion host Garrison Keillor spoke at Macalester's opening convocation. Their talk, “A conversation about life and politics,” featured remarks from Keillor and Mondale about the state of the nation followed by a Q & A session moderated by President Rosenberg.

Convocation Picnic

Following the academic year's opening Convocation with Walter Mondale and Garrison Keillor as guest speakers, Macalester held an all-campus picnic.

Involvement Fair

Students interested in joining one of Macalester's student-run groups were able to talk to members during Taste of Service, an annual event that encourages students to get involved.
