What the students are saying about:

Macalester College

Macalester College

Macalester College’s 2,000 undergrads are known for their quirky intellectualism and liberal politics. Students thrive in the small, discussion-based classes which undergird Macalester’s challenging academic programs, and professors go the extra mile to ensure students get the most out of their education. “Professors here make you think harder, write better, speak better, make connections you never would have made, and even laugh (that’s important too!)” said one freshman studying art. “Students are extremely passionate about the classes they take, and this leads to endless intellectual discussions in the dorms at night. Endless. We never get to sleep!” “I probably learn as much outside of class as I do inside of it, thanks to other students,” a sophomore said. “It is simply understood that students at Macalester are passionate, intelligent, and honestly enjoy learning.”
