What is it?
Connect for Success seeks to support and encourage first-generation, first-year students at St. Olaf College. Students in the program have the opportunity to connect with faculty, staff, and peer mentors to build a network of support. Students are invited to community-building events and programming designed for first-generation college students. There is no cost to participate in the Connect for Success program.
In addition to programming tailored to first-generation, first-year students, a series of campus-wide events and programming are planned to support all first-generation students at St. Olaf College. This program is a collaboration by the Admissions Office, The Center for Advising and Academic Support (CAAS), The Taylor Center for Equity and Inclusion, TRIO Student Support Services, and TRIO McNair Scholars.
