Campus Visit Notes for Macalester College
Don't know where everyone was. Saw no professors, hardly any students. It was very cold-perhaps they were hibernating. The tour guide was a bit "out there" and frankly, set the tone for the visit. She was not very knowledgeable( a freshman), did nothing to try to ensure our comfort(couldn't we discuss this inside?!), and although pleasant, did not make either D nor myself feel that MAC would be a good fit.
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
Hotel St. Paul-would never stay anywhere else in this beautiful city.
