College Tour '10 -- Macalester College
ST. PAUL, MINN.
From a parent
I love that it’s a small gem in a city, urban but not too urban.
The area is very manageable. St. Paul and Minneapolis are really good cities.
We walked into the English Department and ran into a professor. She had come from another school and she told us that Macalester had the most engaged students she had ever seen. That was good to hear from her, and we got a sense ourselves that the students loved being there.
There was also nice diversity, which was important.
This is one in a series of reports that parents and students are contributing about their campus tours this spring. If you have visited a school and would like to participate, e-mail me a brief report at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find out more about College Tour ’10 and how to write about your college visit here.
