The Mac Weekly, established in 1914, is a student-run publication that covers on-campus news, highlights student interests, and provides a forum for opinion and discussion of issues pertinent to the Macalester community. With a circulation of approximately 2000, TMW publishes 12 to 14 issues each academic semester. Its staff is composed primarily of volunteer writers and editors, and welcomes any member of the Macalester community to submit opinion pieces. The Mac Weekly operates as a student organization under the Macalester College Student Government and is funded primarily by student activity fee dollars.
