Get Involved

There are many ways to get involved with the St. Olaf College Student Congregation. Worship at Boe Memorial Chapel, engage in a learning opportunity, enjoy a community meal or participate in “The Big Three” events – our fall film series; January’s BIG READ, and a spring service project.
