Visit Program Update

Out of concern for public health in response to the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic, Macalester College has cancelled all campus visits to Admissions through Monday, May 4. Cancelled programs include all individual visits Monday-Friday, Saturday morning visits, two Admitted Student Sampler programs, and the PRE@Mac program. We will make decisions about visit availability after May 4 in mid-April. In the meantime, if there is anything we can do to help you learn more about Macalester, to answer questions, or to just connect for one brief moment of shared humanity, please know that we are here, ready to connect.
