For plenty of Mac students, their first informational interview with an alum can be daunting. Henry Zuo ’17 (Guilin, China) remembers those nerves, but he’s definitely in a position to tell students how quickly they disappear. When Zuo graduated in May with degrees in economics and math, he had spoken with more than 100 Mac alumni through his travels, internships, and telephone conversations. “Studying at Mac means more than just being on campus,” says Zuo, now working for McKinsey & Co. in Minneapolis. “We exist within a much larger community of Mac alumni who are happy to give advice and share their insights. That’s been a major highlight for me.” (For more information about connecting with current students, visit macalester.edu/alumni/volunteer.)
