MAC in the City 2013
Macalester alumni gathered in 29 cities worldwide for MAC in the City 2013 on Thursday, Oct. 3.
New in India
The adventure of a lifetime was in store for Emma van Emmerik ’14 during her semester in Pune.
Farming and Peace Building
During a semester spent at an Israeli institute, one Mac student learned about the challenges of both desert food production and Middle East peace building.
Zinc Roofs and Latrines
Three students worked with villagers in Sierra Leone to build latrines and waterproof roofs, supported by a Davis Projects for Peace grant.
It seems unlikely that a collection of rocks, acorns, and other natural materials could result in more than random landscape. But at Macalester’s Ordway Field Station last spring, students created art from materials supplied by Mother Nature.
Studio Art Projects
Students in Professor Megan Vossler’s Expanded Drawing and Mixed Media class presented their first projects recently.
Two Lenses on Cambodia
It was a richer experience when students and faculty from religious studies and economics studied together in the kingdom of Cambodia.
Digging for Dinosaurs
Madeline Marshall ’12 traveled to Madagascar looking for fossils. Her work there will continue in Macalester's labs. She hopes the results will be published in a peer-reviewed paleontology journal.
