Life on the Hill

St. Olaf is a BUSY place. With more than 200 student organizations, 27 intercollegiate sports, and a vast array of music ensembles, St. Olaf is always on the go. Here on the Hill, 5 o’clock is the start to the second half of the day.

In any given year, 700-800 students study off-campus on semester- or year-long programs, or on faculty-led Interims that take students around the world. They have provided a glimpse into their travels through blogs, photo competitions, and international essay contests. Take some time and explore them at the links below.

Our president is always thinking about how to provide our students the best opportunities to ensure they are prepared for the next steps. Feel free to peruse President Anderson’s thoughts on the state of higher education, the value of a liberal arts degree, and what our students actually do. St. Olaf’s ROI page allows you to dig deep into what Oles do when they leave the Hill.
