VIKING THEATER: If the sound from the BluRay player does not work:
* Retrieve the DENON BluRay player’s remote from the ‘REMOTES and INSTRUCTIONS’ drawer in the projection room
* Aim the remote at the BluRay player.
* Press the ‘PURE’ button repeatedly while watching the LED display.  It will toggle between four different settings.
* Choose ‘OFF’.  Audio should now play through the speakers.
* Return the remote to the drawer.
If the disk is a standard DVD, you can also use the computer to play the movie.

Projectors in Ballrooms

1. The screen up / down control is integrated in the controls and happens automatically when a projector is turned on and off.

2.  Wall panels have been updated to include HDMI and VGA and audio connections.  We’ve also equipped the ballrooms with cables and adapters to suit most computer solutions.  There may still be the oddball mac adapter to scrounge up, but most common connectors are all set to go on the cables themselves.  We are exploring the best lockable storage solution in the kitchen servery, but for now all of the cables are located in a filing cabinet – one drawer for each ballroom segment so that we can keep everything in order.  That filing cabinet will be replaced once we have ordered a better unit. We also got new mic stands that are stable and more easily stackable / storable.

3.  There are two handheld, wireless microphones for each ballroom segment (6 total when the rooms are all joined together), and 3 lav mics that can be used in place of 3 of the handhelds.  They are labeled clearly room by room and stored in the filing cabinet

4. The lighting presets are available via the new touch panels.  It’s a lot easier to see what you are choosing on the new panels instead of the portrait stations

Manitou Messenger: Staff can be in the building after close on Wednesday nights.

Department Cards


Lost and Found

Items Turned In
Empty any liquids before adding vessel to lost bin, in back. Sort items according to bin. Keep neat.
Identifiable Items

If you are able to identify the owner of an item, send an email to the person. You do not necessarily have to send an item to the back room once you have sent an email to the owner, especially when they have acknowledged your mail. You may place a sticky note on it indicating that the owner will be picking it up and place it neatly in a corner of the desk..

Movies in Viking : Friday & Saturday 5pm, 7:30pm, and 10:00pm – open to the St. Olaf Community.

Art Barn key-card release

In the top drawer of the cabinet with the ID cards, you will see a blue pouch with the labeled cards, this is where they will be kept as well as the sign out/sign in sheet.  Note there are three different cards, depending on what time of the day or night they have booked space, that will allow access, so the appropriate card should be sent with them.
There is also printed a schedule from R25 that indicates which groups have booked the space, only those are allowed to check out a key card.

Fire Alarms: When a fire alarm goes off (sound and blinking lights): Ensure your area is clear, then go outside.  Public Safety officers will arrive and check the situation. If the officer determines the alarm can be cleared (no fire), the sound can be silenced. Staff need to direct people to step outside until staff have been told otherwise directly by Public Safety.
While the alarm is sounding, people need to stay outside.   Public Safety will come and find the BC student staff on duty and give the all-clear, when people are able to return.

Staff can assist by allowing people back into the building at this time.  The lights will still flash until the system resets itself.


If the system is triggered due to an event in the Mane Stage, guests and staff must stay outside until the all-clear is definitively given by the Public Safety officers on-scene.  Staff will be in close contact in this case.


If there are any emergencies with the Enterprise CarShare such as lights left on or parking in the wrong spot or a student is having a problem, call one of the following two phone numbers. When call all you have to do is identify your self as calling about the St Olaf Enterprise CarShare:  Local: (507) 664-9944    24 hour emergency number 1-877-599-3227 (The person renting the car should also have the 877 number. )

Vans: It is very common when the weather is colder that the low tire pressure light is on.  That does not mean the van cannot be driven necessarily.  Please keep this in mind, and if groups mention this they can still be driven, unless of course the tire is completely flat!   Upon inspection of the tires, if they all look ok, the Ford Dealership has confirmed they can be driven.
