          • Testimony
            2007-2011, B.A.

            Accepted Students Weekend was my first campus visit and from the moment I was picked up at MSP by the shuttle I felt welcome. I had never been in a place (and haven't since) where I heard so many people start sentences with "I'm excited about..." I could wax poetic about a lot of great things about St. Olaf, but what stands out most is the community focus, the people. The professors make a point of being available to continue conversations from class, or start new ones. The student body is full of incredibly smart, talented, ambitious people from all different background. The alumni community is solid and supportive -- I am still and will forever be a part of whatever it is I felt on that first visit.

          • Testimony
            1990-1994, Bachelor of Arts

            The thing I like the best about St. Olaf is the percentage of students who either study abroad in another country or are themselves exchange students getting an education at a top-notch institution. One can find lots of representation from around the world and St. Olaf has an increasingly global presence in the world. Not, of course, to mention the music program is better than some conservatories! If you're looking for a college with a beautiful campus and lots of camaraderie St. Olaf is the best choice!

          • Testimony
            1988-1992, BA

            St. Olaf College provided me an exceptional experience in academics and athletics. I highly recommend St. Olaf to students looking for a quality small school that can deliver at many different levels.
