Homecoming and Family Weekend

October 2-4, 2020

While we will not be meeting in person, that doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on Homecoming and Family Weekend! Join us on October 2-4 for our virtual Homecoming and Family Weekend. Check out some of the fun and exciting events we have planned.

Schedule of Events:

Becoming a Multifaith Ministry Staff at St. Olaf – Friday, October 2, 3:30-4:30 p.m.
For as long as St. Olaf has been in existence Lutheran clergy have been dedicated to nurturing the faith lives of students, faculty, and staff. But as the St. Olaf community becomes more religiously diverse, College Ministry has recently expanded to address that reality by adding Associate Chaplains for Jewish and Muslim life. Join us for an engaging conversation with members of College Ministry about what it means for St. Olaf to have a multifaith ministry staff.

Town Hall with President David R. Anderson ’74 – Saturday, October 3, 10-11 a.m.
On Saturday, President Anderson will lead a virtual town hall meeting via Zoom. It’s a great way to stay up-to-date on St. Olaf.
