Last Thursday night, the members of Felland House, as well as a few other students, participated in a homeless sleep-out on Mellby lawn. They braved the cold and rain in sleeping bags and cardboard boxes in order to both raise money for People Serving People (PSP), a shelter in Minneapolis, and bring the issue of homelessness to the attention of students at St. Olaf.
The annual mother-son banquet was a success this year as hordes of proud mothers were able to spend a little bit of time this past Saturday celebrating their sons achievements. After a half-hour of mingling over complimentary punch in the Kings Dining Room of Buntrock Commons, the large crowd was ushered into the Black and Gold Ballroom and seated for lunch.
While students were on Fall Break, the Alumni Board committee gathered on the St. Olaf campus to plant approximately 2,004 daffodil bulbs. The bulbs were planted Oct. 18 by 20 alumni plus Student Senator Cassie Sennigen 04.
Starting next Monday, St. Olaf students will have the opportunity to boost families in impoverished countries toward a better life by helping the Student Congregation and Environmental Coalition raise money to buy a Gift Ark for Heifer Project International.
