While many things likely contribute to modern climate change, scientists believe that ocean circulation has had a major impact on Earth’s climate over the past 20,000 years.

Eric Goldfischer ’13, from Havertown, Penn., has received the Newman Civic Fellow Award from Campus Compact. He was one of 135 students from 30 states who were honored as Newman Civic Fellows.
Martha Rigby ’13 from Etna, N.H., Kaitlin Roh ’12 from Columbus, Neb., and Rachel Wisthuff '11 from La Grange, Ill. have all been awarded U.S. State Department Critical Language Scholarships (CLS) to study critical languages this summer.
They are a former U.N. Secretary-General, an Obie award-winning playwright and actress, a Presbyterian minister and a Rabbi. But one thing they all have in common is that they are all Macalester alumni who will be honored in June during reunion weekend. “Macalester’s alumni routinely make a difference in the world,” said Gabrielle Lawrence, director, Alumni Relations. “The alumni we’re honoring next month at reunion have made differences that have changed the world.”
