Information for Families

Welcome to the St. Olaf Community!

Parents & Families as
Partners

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.
