Alumni & Family Travel


We hope you and your families are well. These days during the COVID-19 pandemic are uncertain. Rarely have we been so connected around the globe in a common goal. We’re all doing our part to slow the spread of the coronavirus with physical distancing. Many of us are sheltering in place, and others are on the front lines. We thank all our doctors, nurses, first responders, medical professionals, and other essential workers. Alumni & Family Travel remains here for you. We continue to plan for the future, for the moment when we can get back to actively exploring our world together, as so many Oles and honorary Oles have before us. Before long we’ll once again carry on the tradition of learning and experiencing other cultures in order to be more understanding and compassionate. In the meantime, you can travel virtually and get ready for your future travels until the pandemic is behind us by using the links below. You can also follow our Virtual Travel updates and COVID-19 updates from both Travel and St. Olaf.

Programs are still being planned for a future when we can once again travel together. We’re revising Payment & Refund Schedules so that future payments are adjusted to later dates due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the event you need to cancel your registration due to illness or circumstances related to the pandemic, or if circumstances related to the pandemic are such that St. Olaf feels compelled to cancel a program, you will receive a full refund of all payments made to St. Olaf.

St. Olaf Travel helps alumni, parents, and friends of the College explore other cultures, histories, cuisines, and more. The goal is that in encountering other perspectives, we will deepen our understanding of our own viewpoints. Play the video to learn more.
