Life on the Hill wouldn’t be the same without the support and involvement of alumni and families. We encourage you to explore the many opportunities we have to be part of our community.

Why does your support matter?

Now, more than ever, our society needs informed leaders in all walks of life who are capable of disciplined, creative thinking; leaders with empathy toward others and strong ethics and values to guide them. We are uniquely positioned to prepare those leaders of tomorrow. Investing in St. Olaf College is not only an investment in the college’s future but also, through our graduates, the future of the larger world in which we live.
