While Macalester welcomes the media to campus, we do require that all members of the media contact our Media Relations Manager Barbara K. Laskin prior to visiting campus. Reporters or other members of the media visiting campus will be escorted by a Communications staff person or designee.
Our goal is to facilitate media access while not interfering with teaching and research activities and protecting the privacy, health and safety of students, faculty and staff; and complying with state and federal student and personnel privacy laws.
- Media vehicles must be parked legally. Maps & Directions.
- Equipment must not damage college property
- Equipment, vehicles and personnel must not restrict traffic, fire lanes or access to buildings
- Additional restrictions on the use of television cameras, still cameras, flashes and other special lighting and audio equipment may be imposed on a case-by-case basis to minimize disruption or protect safety or security. If security is an issue, these items may be subject to inspection
