Nine St. Olaf students participated in a Center for Experiential Learning-sponsored homeless immersion experience called "A Day in the Life." The program is facilitated by St. Steven's Human Services in Minneapolis and is open to the public as a way to learn about the realities of homelessness.
Ten years ago, St. Olaf was one of the first academic institutions in the nation to offer a learning community centered around the study of Asian cultures and language. The new Asian Conversation will debut next fall with a class of 24 students, across all major disciplines.
The future of the Minnesota economy was the hot topic Tuesday night as the St. Olaf Political Action Committee hosted a dinner with Vice President of Public Affairs and Business Development for the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce Bill Blazar.
