Welcome the class of 2023 to Macalester in a city near you!

Macalester’s current students and families and young alumni are eager to welcome students and families from the incoming Class of 2023 to the Macalester community. Whether you are just joining the Macalester community or have been part of the Mac family for a long time, we hope you can join us for this fun summer tradition!

Events are taking place in 11 locations across the country for new and current students and their parents and families and Mac alumni who have recently graduated.  We’ll connect and enjoy light refreshments, welcome the Class of 2023 to our extended Mac community and toast the upcoming academic year!
