Programming Highlights

If you are planning to arrive early, join us for a casual golf outing Thursday afternoon, June 2, on the Executive Course at Highland National Golf Course, located a couple miles south of Macalester. Tee times will start at 1 p.m. Golfers of all abilities (or no ability) are welcome; no competition, no prizes—just good fellowship. Spouses and partners are strongly encouraged to attend.

Book discussion with Professor Adrienne Christiansen
Join Professor Adrienne Christiansen on Friday afternoon to discuss When Everything Changed: The Amazing Journey of American Women from 1950 to the Present by Gail Collins, Op-Ed Columnist for the New York Times.

Sing Along With Sam
On Friday evening when '66 gathers in Briggs House we will have a fun sing along with Sam Podany '66.

Deeper Conversations
Join us on Saturday to consider “What’s it all about?” through deeper conversations. Guided small group discussion groups will consider three questions:

  • How have your Mac friendships continued to affect you?
  • In what ways did your values and world view undergo changes while you were at Mac that still influence you today?
  • What specific actions would you still like to take that would reflect your Mac experiences and have an impact on the future?

Think about it. Then come and participate in the discussion.

A Macalester Piano Bar Evening
Michael Anthony '66 will be playing piano on Saturday evening after dinner. Stop by the Alumni House to share stories from our 50th while listening to our own well known Twin Cities Music Critic who is also an accomplished pianist. Great way to cap off the weekend.

Class of 1966 Art and Creative Works Exhibit

As part of our 50-Year Reunion, an Art and Creative Works Exhibit is being organized by Bonnie Wilson Buzza '66. The exhibit will be held in the Janet Wallace Fine Arts Center and a wide variety of contributions are welcome. If you are interested in participating, please email Bonnie at
