What is Mac 360?
Mac 360 is a campus-wide co-curricular program that offers a variety of activities and life enhancement programs for students outside of the classroom. Mac 360 is holistic learning that helps the student grow in many different areas of life: intellectually, emotionally, physically, spiritually, and professionally. Mac 360 programs are offered at various times of the week. There are a variety of topics and workshops from which to choose, offered by faculty, staff, community members, and guest speakers.
Mac 360 is important because it helps you connect with other students, faculty, and staff on campus. It also gives you opportunities to explore critical issues in society and grow as a person and as a professional.
Mac 360 includes programs from academic departments, Career Services, Health Services, Religious Life, Student Organizations, Convocations, Service and Volunteerism, individual research and academic pursuits, and more.

"Mac 360 helped me understand the campus better. When I first came here, I had an idea of what the campus was and where a few things were but, going to events such as meeting clubs and playing games, I wouldn't know where to go.
"Mac 360 also allowed me to find a friend group that I belong in. As every freshman goes through, I didn't know who to talk to or even what to say to someone. All the events allowed me to meet new people and solidify my current friend group."
— Mary Freiburg, Freshman
"In a fun, open environment, In the Know (MAC 360) fosters critical thinking through discussion, debate, and fluency with the issues of today — adding value, depth, and perspective to student progress in the classroom."
— Adam C. Cassell, Public Services Librarian
