One of the first rumors first year students hear when arriving on campus is that they will marry an Ole. The second is that St. Olaf was rated to have some of the most attractive college-going people in the country according to none other than Playboy magazine. This rumor, coupled with the first, would make for a pretty sweet deal.

However, Playboy magazine website does not list St. Olaf as one of the "hottest" campuses.

The Playboy rumor has reached mythic proportions and is possibly the single most recited fact to friends at home. groups, such as "I'm Too Pretty to Go to Carleton," which list the incorrect ranking, have helped to perpetuate the rumor on campus.
