Football enjoys grand opening

A year ago, the St. Olaf football team needed 32 unanswered second-half points to top the Luther Norse by a single point in their season opener, staging the largest comeback in team history and fourth-largest ever in NCAA football. Saturday, the Oles decided to skip the whole “falling behind by 31 points” thing and start scoring unanswered points right away.

Inside the Lines: Size matters

The sports world has undergone so many changes over the past half century that it is nearly impossible to list them all. Who, in 1955, would have foreseen that football would become America’s new national pastime? Who might have guessed that female participation in college athletics would reach over 150,000 in the 21st century? Who would have fathomed that professional athletes would someday earn millions of dollars simply for playing a game?

Sports ease transition for first-year athletes

Every Ole knows what it feels like to be a first-year student. Moving away from home to a place flooded with peers, knowing a handful at most, and sharing a room smaller than your own at home can be a crazy feeling. Adjusting to college life is an experience that all first-year students go through together, but some students have an extra element thrown into that mix: Athletics.

Stellar start for women

After posting a stellar 12-6-1 overall record last fall, the St. Olaf women’s soccer team is poised to take the next step in the intense MIAC competition this season. The women, who return a solid core from a year ago, should contend for a conference title this season.

Men look to defend title

Fresh off their MIAC title a year ago, the St. Olaf men’s soccer team appears well on their way to a second consecutive conference crown as they opened their 2005 season with a 3-1 record.

How do you feel about the recent news of a tuition increase?
This is news to me.
I am a senior. Thank god.
I'd feel better about it if a more adequate explanation was provided.
It's routine and expected. What gives?
