The Michalson Monster is a MacMurray College legend. Starting its life as the Harker Monster, it moved across campus in 1971 to the newly built Michalson Hall when Harker Hall was torn down. Legend has it that the monster watches and protects his students. The Michalson Monster’s move is celebrated on campus with blue footprints painted on the sidewalks along the path the monster took.
