Campus Center Programs & Services creates opportunities for Macalester students to find community, comfort and connection. We foster a welcoming environment for all members of the Macalester family, and set the stage to create an active, visible, and vibrant campus community hub. 

The Ruth Stricker Dayton Campus Center, or “CC” for short, is not just a building; it is an organization and program dedicated to helping our students feel at home and being their most authentic selves. 

The center is named in honor of Ruth Stricker Dayton ‘57 who generously supported this facility for students and the entire Macalester community to enjoy.
