Registration Now Open
Join us for a week long celebration of Reunion events
Friday, July 17 – Sunday, July 25

Multiculturalism. Internationalism. Service to society. A shared commitment to these core values connects the Macalester community across decades and provides a basis for continuous transformation throughout our lives.

Join your Macalester community July 17-25 as we un-pause this year’s online Reunion to reengage with each other and renew yourself with connection, learning, and a little bit of joy.

Events include dance parties complete with cocktail hour (and special SURPRISE guests!), faculty office hours, community grounding events, reunion class gatherings for 0s and 5s classes, All Reunion Trivia, and more. To launch Reunion, make sure you register for our Saturday, July 18th kickoff event to honor our alumni award recipients, celebrate the Macalester Moment campaign and Reunion class giving, and hear remarks from President Rivera.



There is no cost for Reunion events, but registration is required to access the event links. Links for each day’s registered events will be sent to you by email on the day of each event.
View the complete schedule.

Everyone is welcome though only our 0s and 5s classes will be hosting class gatherings for Reunion. Join us for one event, or for the entire week. Rekindle your Mac spirit with friends, enjoy new traditions, and celebrate all that you remember about Mac from wherever you are in the world.

As we adjust to our new reality, Career Exploration is working to support Macalester students in new and creative ways. Many alumni have generously asked how they can support our students in their internship and career searches during this difficult time. We are grateful for the outpouring of support, and want to share some ways alumni can help:

Hire a Mac Student:
If your company has openings for jobs or internships right now, please fill out this quick Google form and we’ll share the opportunities with students.  

Share Career Advice:
Show students you are available to share career advice. Turn on your CareerHelper badge in MacDirect to signal that you are open and willing to connect when students feel ready to reach out. 


Contribute your history! Make sure your time at Mac is represented in the College Archives for current and future Mac community members. The Archives is always looking for donations of materials from your student days: photos; student org materials; event programs and flyers; anything about EEO and the cultural houses; protest and activism materials; WMCNSpringfest; materials especially from alums from the 1970s through early 2000s; and much more!

For more information see Donating to the Archives or contact Ellen Holt-Werle at
