Destination St. Olaf: Class of 2019



You’re Almost Here

Just a few more steps and pretty soon you’ll find yourself on campus with your new classmates in the midst of Week One. This site includes reminders and forms we need before you arrive, and all the information you need for successful matriculation to St. Olaf College.

Contact questions2019@stolaf.edu or Associate Dean of Students Tim Schroer (507-786-3615) if you can’t find what you need.  Please use your St. Olaf email when contacting St. Olaf.

Making Your Second Enrollment Deposit

To make the June 1 enrollment deposit log in to the Admissions portal and use the username and password for that site. This is not the @stolaf.edu email address you use for Destination St. Olaf activity. (Usernames and passwords can be confusing at this time of year, as some processes — such as enrollment deposits — still run through admissions.)

Drop-Off, Drop-By

Ole DictionaryMove-In Day officially begins Saturday, September 5. If you’re arriving in Northfield a day early, you are invited to get a head start by DROPPING OFF some of your college stuff on Friday afternoon from 2–4 p.m. Residence hall staff and junior counselors will help you find your room and more your stuff, but it’s drop-off only — no unpacking until Saturday morning. Register here.

While students enjoy some time with new classmates in the Lion’s Pause in Buntrock Commons, parents are invited to enjoy a nice summer reception at the tent at the president’s residence. They will meet other parents and members of the college administration. Although it’s a casual event, we would appreciate an r.s.v.p. 

International Students should plan to arrive on Tuesday, September 1, for the mandatory International Student Orientation prior to Week One. Visit International Student Life for more information.
