Along with the traditional fanfare of the graduation ceremony and Senior Week, the class of 2008 has an extra bonus to look forward to: an exclusive tour of the new Regents Hall of Natural and Mathematical Sciences.
This Tuesday, the 21 students of the English Language and Linguistics class held a "language museum" in Buntrock Commons 144. They presented poster boards and elaborate presentations as the culmination of research the class had done throughout the semester.
With finals just on the horizon, many students are hurriedly trying to catch up on their course work and put in extra hours of studying before exam time. This week, the Oles for Justice in Palestine group tried to enlarge the perspective of students on campus through a number of different events planned to educate the St. Olaf community.
Thursday, May 8th, St. Olaf's Alumni and Parent Relations department will host Norwegian Heritage Day. The event is intended as a day for alumni, parents and friends related to the college to get together and honor and celebrate Norwegian roots, traditions and identity. The hope is to both remember the past and enjoy the present.
