What do you like most about Mac?
MacMurray has a genuine, down-to-earth, community atmosphere. Students, professors, and staff members are friendly and welcoming. I also like that, as a small college, it’s easy for any student to get involved and take on leadership roles on campus.
Favorite Jacksonville restaurant and why?
Jacksonville has several good restaurants, but I go to Schiraz most often. It’s great for lunch and also has espresso drinks and a coffeehouse/café feel.
Advice to Prospective Students:
Study for the ACT/SAT! Many students go into the test without ever having reviewed math, vocab, and test-taking strategies. Often, when they actually study (and do so intently for several weeks!), their scores go up.
Random Mac Fact:
Graduates walk to the commencement ceremony led by bagpipers!
Running, yoga, playing the piano, visiting my family in Michigan, taking roadtrips with my husband, being involved at my church, cooking, drinking coffee, and continuing my ongoing search for the most delicious cupcake.
You're on a desert island and have only brought the music of 3 artists/groups. Which do you choose?
Celine Dion (no joke), Andrew Peterson, and Patty Griffin.
