Summer Send-Off Events

Welcome the class of 2028 to Macalester
in a city near you! 

Summer Send-Offs are an opportunity for Macalester’s newest students and their families to come together and meet other Scots from their area who will be part of their incoming class.

For alumni, current students and their families, we hope you will join us as we celebrate and send off the incoming Class of 2028 to Macalester!

These gatherings are informal and purely social, providing opportunities to meet and be inspired by local alumni, current students, and their families.  It is also a great opportunity for first-year parents and family members to foster a sense of community with each other as families embark on this journey together.  

Whether you are new to the Macalester community, have been a member for a long time, or fall somewhere in the middle, we hope you will join us for this fun Macalester summer tradition! You are welcome to register for any gathering that is convenient for you.
