Fall Visit Days

Fall Visit Day programs are a great way to find out if St. Olaf is right for you.

There’s a lot going on at St. Olaf. Classes (obviously), practices, study groups, meetings over coffee, rehearsals, internship planning, research, and more. If you’re a senior, there’s a lot coming your way, too — choosing a college (or two, or ten), applying for admission and financial aid, and doing all the regular stuff of senior year. Fall Visit Day programs are especially useful for juniors beginning their college search, and for seniors who are narrowing their college selections. We will present an overview of the college, have a student panel talk about campus life, cover admissions and financial aid questions, and send you out on a campus tour with a current student. You’ll also meet faculty, coaches, and conductors.
