Broadcast / Media Services is committed to supporting members of the St. Olaf community regardless of nationality, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, socioeconomic status, or religion. We condemn racism in all forms and vow to actively combat it.

Our department is a service provider responsible for presenting content from across the St. Olaf community. Content and messaging on this platform may not necessarily reflect our own personal beliefs. We recognize that our work has the power to perpetuate a culture of systemic racism at St. Olaf. In order to generate needed and lasting change, we commit to supporting and affirming marginalized voices. Our platform is open to all.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • The video isn't playing -- all I see is a still image

    Unfortunately, videos aren't able to play automatically. To start the video, make sure to click the triangular Play button in the middle of the image.

  • I'm not hearing any sound

    All videos on this page start out muted. To hear sound, please check that the volume on the video has been turned on and turned up, by checking the sound icon in the bottom left-hand part of the video, near the small triangular Play button

  • I'm hearing the sound twice / there's an echo

    This usually happens because the video is open in two tabs in your browser at the same time. Please make sure to only load this page in a single browser, in a single tab.
