Welcome to the Alumni Engagement website. The Macalester community extends far beyond the student experience. Once a student, you are connected with a support system for life – in whatever life phase you are going through.
Macalester will always continue to evolve to meet the current needs of students, but the spirit of Macalester remains steady. Whether you are a student or celebrating your 70th Reunion, you feel that drive to question the status quo, to discover everything there is to discover, to see the world bigger than you thought possible, to feel a deep passion around helping our communities, and to view life with an inclusive lens.
Whatever path you are on, we are here for you. We have ways to connect to students, to connect with other alumni, to learn, and to make an impact.
Thank you for all you do to live that Macalester spirit. Our world is grateful for you.
We invite you to explore the different ways to engage with the Macalester community.
