What Makes Us Special

About St. Olaf College

St. Olaf doesn’t produce ordinary college grads. It turns out Oles (Oh-Lees). Oles think harder, approach problems differently, persevere with enthusiasm. Oles are born of St. Olaf’s intense academic program — a program that hones minds, while its emphasis on global engagement broadens perspectives. Oles aren’t necessarily religious, but St. Olaf’s religious tradition encourages deep self-reflection. Most important is the Ole community — one that accepts, supports, and encourages, generating lifelong connections.
