News releases about your achievements at St. Olaf

News releases about your achievements at St. Olaf (i.e., making the dean’s list, participating in the Christmas Festival, being featured in a news article) are sent to your hometown newspaper. We send these brief releases to the newspapers and online news outlets in the area identified by the zip code you list for your permanent address. You will also receive a notice via email that can be posted to social media.

If you want news releases sent to your local newspapers, the only thing you need to do is make sure you have the correct zip code listed for your permanent address.

If you do not want press releases sent to your local newspapers, please follow the following steps.

  • Log in to SIS at http://stolaf.edu/sis
  • Use your St. Olaf username and password
  • Please click on the newspaper hold and follow the directions.
  • You can change this information at anytime.

Please bear in mind that major newspapers such as the Star Tribune or the Washington Post do not print announcements of this type. Your news releases are usually printed in local news outlets.

If you have questions, contact Marie Frederickson at frederim@stolaf.edu or 507-786-3032.
