Using WordPress at St. Olaf

St. Olaf’s websites are powered by WordPress, a robust CMS (content management system) that provides a dynamic, extensible, and — best of all — easy way to manage our site’s content. Supported by a vast library of plugins, there is very little we can’t do with WordPress to give our audience the information they need, and our Admins the power to create it.
