Life on Campus

Student Life on campus is described in the Mackinac College Catalogue as follows:

"Mackinac College is designed for young men and women who want to set the pace in building a world that works. Student activities provide scope for the development of leadership, creative entertainment, recreation, and a zest for living. All students are expected to strive for the best of which they are capable in the classroom, on the stage, on speaking platforms, and on athletic fields.

Horizons on Mackinac extend beyond campus concerns. As an important part of campus life students have the opportunity to report and comment on world affairs, on vital social, economic, and political issues, and on the fine arts, particularly with reference to their generation's responsibility for spotlighting solutions rather than just pinpointing problems.

Qualified students are encouraged to participate in constructive social, economic , and cultural projects, and in area studies within the United States and abroad, especially during their junior and senior years. Even for freshmen and sophomores the unique Extended Residence Program offers opportunities of this kind."
