The Senior Class is invited to come together as a community in a recent addition to Senior Week — Facing Forward. Inspired by an event of the same name in 2015 and by Faces of Mac, please join us to lift up collective reflection and community celebration. Come hear fellow seniors from different parts of campus share their reflections on their four years at Macalester, including stories of triumph and growth, of struggle and heartbreak, of looking backwards and moving forwards. We hope to cultivate an intimate community space in which we can celebrate each other’s journeys and truths. Due to size limitations, the event is open only to the Senior Class.
