Student Services and Resources
The student activities program at St. Olaf College is highly visible. The purpose of the comprehensive program is to complement the academic program of studies and enhance the overall educational experience of students through development of, exposure to, and participation in social, cultural, intellectual, recreational and governance programs.
The development of the activities program is based on student needs, and the scope of activities is broad. Functions are planned and implemented through collaborative efforts by the student government and student organizations.
The student activities staff provides leadership and supervision for eight major student body organizations - working together as a forum for activity, expression and decision making within the student community and striving to further the educational goals and general welfare of all St. Olaf students. They are the Student Senate, Student Activities Committee (SAC), Political Activities Committee (PAC), Student Organizations Committee (SOC), the Lion's Pause, Board of Regents Committee (BORSC), the Volunteer Network (VN), and the Diversity Celebrations Committee (DCC).
Specific responsibilities of these student body organizations are outlined in this Student Handbook.
Student involvement in the student activities program is a major part of the collegiate experience on the St. Olaf campus. Overall, the program includes social, cultural, intellectual, recreational, governance, leadership, group development, campus and community service, and lectures and concert programs.
The Student Activities Office can be found in Buntrock Commons room 107 or at ext. 3999.
