Skip to page content Mac Nation Homecoming


This year's Homecoming theme, MacNation, kicks off a year-long campaign to "Rally the Alumni Army"!

President Mark Tierno will complete a nationwide tour in the summer of 2017, and Homecoming will kickstart this campaign!

The legacy of MacMurray College, its traditions and excellence, live today through class of 1966 alumna Judith Akers. Judith is a descendent of one of our founding fathers, Dr. Peter Akers, more specifically his great-great granddaughter.

Dr. Peter Akers held prestigious roles in higher education during the 1800's. Most importantly, he built the framework for the Illinois Female Academy and College, known today as MacMurray College.

We welcome back Judith as we celebrate the history and heritage that is MacNation. We are grateful for her continued passion and support for MacMurray College.

Commemorate your homecoming with a shirt!

This year, we will be offering a long sleeve t-shirt, proudly displaying the College's name and Homecoming theme.

We will also have Michalson Monster 5K run/walk t-shirts.

Please include your shirt order with your reservation, as there will be limited shirts available during the weekend.

Join in the fun and wear your kilts as we celebrate being Highlanders!
