Why I chose Admissions and Financial Aid
I got into Admissions because I believe it is important to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for all students, regardless of their background. Also because everyone at Admissions is so passionate about their jobs.
As a Scot I ran track my first and sophomore years and cross country my sophomore year. I also played in the Macalester Symphony Orchestra and worked as Concert Manager and Office Assistant in the Music Department. My senior year I coached for Girls on the Run and precepted SPAN308.
Favorite time of the year and thing about at Mac
My favorite time of the year has to be the winter! The campus looks so beautiful with a layer of snow. My favorite thing about Mac is how kind everyone is. People will go out of their way to help you and/or make sure you’re okay.
Love about the Twin Cities
What I love most about the Twin Cities is being able to explore different places, such as museums and restaurants, and also run along the river.
