A look back at Reunion 2017

Reunion 2017 brought more than 1,300 people together to connect with the Macalester spirit. More than 75 programs and separate events were held throughout the weekend, including celebrations, dinners, lectures, panels and gatherings to connect and learn about the amazing lives of your classmates. Eighty-eight alumni were inducted into the Golden Scots Society, and 57 were inducted into the Silver Scots Society. Nearly 300 people attended the Wallace Society dinner—a beautiful event that celebrates all individuals and families that have Macalester in their estate plans.
