What if I want to visit campus before I submit my enrollment deposit?
We would love for you to see the Hill. While we can’t welcome you to campus like we normally would, we have created a variety of virtual visit opportunities that are bringing “the Hill” to you!
Discover life at St. Olaf, meet your future professors, learn about internships and outcomes from a St. Olaf education, and hear from current Oles. Real people are ready and waiting to show and tell you what St. Olaf is like, and to help you see yourself as an Ole — open up the doors.
What if I’d like to talk to someone at St. Olaf?
You can register for a virtual connection with the admissions team and/or for information sessions with current students.
