2021 Senior Showcase
To celebrate the extraordinary, resilient, and unforgettable Class of 2021, we asked seniors to share advice, reflections, and memories in their own words (including via haiku).
Make sure to get sleep!
Taking care of your body is more important than anything Macalester will require of you.
Make use of study locations outside of Mac! If you're feeling a little stuck in the Mac bubble, I'd recommend walking over to St. Thomas and making use of their amazing outdoor space and libraries!

How did this happen
If you have a secret study spot, don't share it when they send a google form asking for advice/tips for new students. That's how they get your secret study spot. ):<

I recommend cafe mac coffee with a little soft-serve. Also, on chili day, put the chili on curly fries and top with cheese.
Lots of work to do
So many people to meet
Time flies, so have fun
One thing that I regret is not taking the opportunity to explore the area outside of Macalester. As a student, I was always busy with something. But it's definitely worth it to get away from campus when you have the chance. On that note, take the time to hang out with your friends and try new things! Plus, take lots of pictures for the memories later on!
