Welcome, new students! Congratulations on becoming a Macalester Scot!

Get ready to find yourself at Mac. New student orientation will take place August 30-September 3, 2018. Orientation is a five day experience that will acquaint you with the culture, services, and resources as you transition into the campus community. By the end of new student orientation you will:

  • Connect with other new students and find out what it means to be part of the Macalester community.
  • Learn to navigate campus and discover the rich diversity in and around the Twin Cities.
  • Meet with college representatives to learn how to succeed in and outside of the classroom.
  • Become familiar with resources that are important to making campus your new home.

Additional information will be available in late May.

We look forward to seeing you on August 30, 2018!
