Visit Days

The best way to get to know St. Olaf is to visit. Our Visit Day programs are an invitation to meet the people behind the facts and figures. Our faculty, staff, and students will share their passions and answer your questions about what it’s like to be part of this community.

You’ll choose presentations about various aspects of the St. Olaf experience, take a student-led campus tour, and enjoy lunch by our award-winning food service. By the end of the day, you’ll have a much clearer sense of how much you can do at St. Olaf, and where your education might lead.

Depending on the program, you may also schedule an admissions interview, sit in on a class, or stay overnight on campus with a current student. Registration for these options close one week prior to the program.
