Exploration in Education
Learning about new fields and broadening your horizons is at the heart of a liberal arts education. It is also the best way to confirm your intended major or to find one that you didn’t know existed before coming to Mac. Use this opportunity to explore new ways of learning and living; this knowledge will be an asset to you both during Macalester and beyond.
