After two years of virtual Reunion gatherings, Mac’s on-campus Reunion tradition returned this year. More than 1,300 alumni and friends—including the three 50th Reunion classes of 1970, 1971, and 1972—gathered on campus over four days in June for a program that included panels and office hours with faculty and staff, dance parties, campus tours, class dinners, and Decade Lounges. At the Grand Celebration breakfast, attendees honored this year’s nine Alumni Award recipients. And they also celebrated four new fundraising records: one for the Macalester Fund, with more than 8,400 donors giving $5.07 million this past year; and three class gift records set by the classes of 1970, 1971, and 1972 that collectively raised nearly $40 million for the college through gifts to the Macalester Fund, other outright gifts, and planned gifts.
