Welcoming the Class of 2022

This week St. Olaf College welcomed the Class of 2022, a talented group of 813 first-year students who hail from 500 high schools in 41 states and 50 different countries.

They attended a special welcome ceremony for new students and their families, met President David R. Anderson ’74 while signing their name in the college book, registered for classes, and joined the campus community for Opening Convocation.

“I hope you begin your St. Olaf journey keeping in mind the important things you want to accomplish, the experiences you want to have, and the things you want to do. Stay focused on becoming the person you want to be,” St. Olaf Vice President for Enrollment and College Relations Michael Kyle ’85 told new students at the welcome ceremony. “Find the joy in your life, and share it with others. We want the very best for you, and we expect the very best from you.”

Welcome, Class of 2022!
