The St. Olaf Style

Ever been confused about whether it’s the Kings’ Dining Room or the King’s Dining Room? Or about the best way to insert a hyperlink into text? Or why you should use the logo instead of the lion?

You’re not alone.

It’s important to have a consistent style across campus publications and platforms, so we offer these writing, web, and graphic style guides to help make sure that we’re all following the same guidelines.

The three sites below (also linked at left) should be of some help:

  • The Web Style Guide provides instruction on applying the required St. Olaf design layouts and implementing other site-wide standards, plus recommendations on best practices.
  • The Writing Style Guide is offered to bring consistency to non-scholarly, mass-media publications and correspondence written for and about St. Olaf College.
  • The Graphic Style Guide will help you convey the St. Olaf identity in a clear, concise, and consistent manner.
