This fall, we’re welcoming the Class of 2022 into the Mac community. The 624 students come to 1600 Grand from near and (very) far: 22 already call St. Paul home, while many traveled thousands of miles to campus. (The farthest hometown? 10,062 miles away, in Vacoas, Mauritius.) As the students settle into the residence halls, they’ll begin to understand and learn from the wide range of backgrounds and perspectives they represent collectively:
