If you see Mackenzie at a coffee shop in Bloomington or at the gym (most likelyrunning), don’t hesitate to introduce yourself!

Her father graduated in 1987, a “banner year”, and her older brother and younger sister currently attend IU in Bloomington. The term “Go Hoosiers” has a lot of meaning for this group. Go Hoosiers!
