Meet Macalester Day

Join us at Macalester for an entire day of exploring campus and meeting the Mac community! As you contemplate colleges and research your options, Macalester invites you to connect with our current students, professors, and staff at our college in the city at this special on-campus event.


Students and families can join us on campus for Meet Macalester Day on either Friday, October 4 or Monday, October 14. Join our email list to receive the invite when registration opens.


You are invited to begin and end your day at our group events. For the remainder of your time, you’ll choose from our list of options and fill your day with activities that interest you most.

Class visits are only open to student visitors. We ask that parents and other guests choose another activity while their student is in class.  At 10:50, all visitors are welcome to join a special sample class taught exclusively for Meet Mac visitors.
