Upcoming Visit Days

Minnesota Private College Week

Monday, June 20 through Friday, June 24, 2016


To launch the summer visit season, Minnesota Private College Week provides lightning fast introductions to a wide range of schools. MPCW programs are offered in the morning and afternoon. Each half-day session will give you a taste of what it means to study the liberal arts at St. Olaf. (In case you’re wondering, it means you can study just about anything, do just about anything, and meet people from all 50 states and 82 countries who will join you for the journey.)

Bring the questions that will shape your college search:

  • What is the academic program?
  • What kinds of extracurricular, international, and off-campus study programs are offered?
  • What is it like to live on campus?

Registration available here: Minnesota Private College Week

Summer Visit Days

Monday, July 11 and Monday, August 8

For a more extensive visit day experience, join us for a Summer Visit Day program. We’ll answer your questions about admission and financial aid and offer you a brief STO Talk to introduce the classroom experience at St. Olaf. You’ll have a chance to talk with faculty (we were rated #2 in the nation for quality of teaching) and current students. On a student-led campus tour, you’ll check out Regents Hall of Natural and Mathematical Sciences (ranked #2 for science labs and facilities, but who’s counting?), the Fine Arts and athletic facilities, and the natural lands. You will also enjoy a meal served by our award-winning food service (consistently among the best in the nation, if such ratings matter).

When you’re here, you’ll see that it’s easier to do great things when you’re in a great place.
