More Mac grads studying the divine

Katie Zager of The Mac Weekly writes how Macalester College -- not exactly a fire-and-brimstone kind of place -- is sending increasing numbers of students to divinity school:

"One interesting reality at Macalester is that though the college is often touted as a place that is uninterested in the practice of religion in a broad sense of that word, the reality is that we have sent at least as many students to seminary and divinity school over the past years as we have to law school," said Associate Dean for Religious and Spiritual Life and Chaplain Lucy Forster-Smith.
