Information for Families

Welcome to the St. Olaf Community!

Parents & Families as

Here at St. Olaf College, we consider parents, family members, and other individuals who support Oles as partners in each student’s collegiate experience. New Student Orientation, while a process primarily developed for incoming students, is also designed to assist our new (and seasoned) Ole families in acclimating themselves to the larger St. Olaf community.

Move-In Day: Family Edition

Move-In Day isn’t just for students!  We are excited to provide engagement opportunities for parents and families on Saturday, September 2, 2023. The day will culminate with a long-held tradition we call A St. Olaf Welcome and after this event, families will depart campus and incoming Oles will begin their New Student Orientation experience.

A TENTATIVE schedule will be shared THIS SUMMER


Not sure what your student needs to be working on? We’ve got a checklist.

We recommend encouraging your student to continually keep an eye on their New Student Checklist to make sure they are ready to start their St. Olaf experience!
