Nov. 6 marks an esteemed day in St. Olaf history essentially the beginning of its history. Intent on developing students to become valuable citizens of the world, five men (including the college's founder Bernt Julius Muus) promised that St. Olaf would be an honored institution for generations of Oles.
Henceforth, Founders Day has been a marked occasion for dedicating buildings such as Old Main in 1878 and celebrations by Oles both at home and abroad clinging to their alma mater.
Fram! Fram! (onward, onward) we are led into St. Olaf's 133rd year of tradition and value.
