St. Olaf College is currently in a COVID-19 Yellow (or medium alert) Level.



Our January term provides invaluable opportunities for students to put their studies into practice. Last year one music education class worked with elementary school students to create and perform an original opera.

Oles don’t all look alike or think alike, but what they do share is an enthusiasm. An optimism. A work ethic driven by the knowledge that anything is possible, the answer to every problem is yes, that what’s broken needs fixing, what’s working can be improved. Oles think harder, dive deeper.
