President’s Parent Reception


President David Anderson ’74

Congratulations on your students’ admission to the St. Olaf Class of 2017!

We are very glad you are considering a visit to St. Olaf College this spring. The Admitted Student Day programs are an incredible way to explore the vast opportunities St. Olaf provides for your student. Check the Admitted Student Days link on the left hand tool bar for more information about the programs.

In conjunction with the Admitted Student Day programs, parents of admitted students are invited to a reception hosted by President David Anderson ’74. We hope you will join us at the St. Paul Hotel for conversation, a hearty hors d’oeurves and drinks from  5:00 -8:00 p.m. on Friday evening before either of the Admitted Student Day programs.

There will be a block of rooms reserved at the St. Paul Hotel at a special St. Olaf rate of $132 per night. These rooms will be available on the nights of April 11, 12, 13, 18,19, and 20. To reserve a room, please call the St. Paul Hotel directly at (800) 292-9292 and ask for the St. Olaf College room block. Rooms will be held until March 22 for the first Admitted Student Day program and until March 29 for the Second Admitted Student Day Program.

Once you and have decided which Admitted Student Day program to attend, please register yourself for the President’s Parent Reception through the Admitted Student Day registration form.
