Mid-Year New Student Orientation

Welcome to St. Olaf!

We are so glad you are an Ole!

You are now a part of an extensive community of leaders, scholars, and doers and we could not be more excited for you to start your St. Olaf experience.

Joining our community mid-year…

Whether you join us for the Fall or in the Spring, we are thrilled to welcome you to the Hill! Mid-Year New Student Orientation is the process through which we seek to welcome incoming students to our campus community in February. Though more condensed than our summer program, MY NSO is still designed to provide a foundation for success in and out of the classroom here at St. Olaf.
