Inside the Fall Block Party

fbpmodSGA is so excited to have Oles back on the Hill and what’s a better way to kick off a great year than with the SGA Fall Block Party?! The Block Party will be on Friday Sept. 5th and Saturday Sept. 6th and is filled with activities for all Oles!

Friday’s activities start at 5:00 pm on the Quad with the annual Co-Curricular Fair from 5-7, sponsored by the Student Organizations Committee (SOC). Come chat with org leaders and find some awesome ways to keep busy on campus! All of SGA will be there as well to answer your questions about our individual branches, tell you how you can get involved, and hand out some free swag! Along with our Co-Curricular Fair will be dinner on the Buntrock Plaza. Enjoy a meal with you friends while dining beneath the trees in an adirondack chair in the (hopefully) beautiful weather! Make sure to change into your beach wear, because at 10:00 pm the After Dark Committee (ADC) is putting on an end of the summer beach party in the Pause. The dance will go from 10-1.

Saturday will kick off at 2:00 pm. Join SGA and all our branches on the Quad for a cool back-to-school treat and plenty of activities including live music from campus bands, inflatables, yard games, and even a mini service project! The Student Activities Committee (SAC) is hosting comedian Chloe Hilliard in the Lion’s Pause at 7:30. Come early to get good seats and great laughs! ADC will help us round out with their club sport mixer at the base of Old Main hill from 8-9:30 pm. We hope to see you all there to help us kick off a great year!

A note from the President & Vice-President

Rachel And NickHey, Oles!
Thanks for stopping by Student Government Association’s new website. This summer we have been busy working with our Executive Team to ensure that this year will be the best year yet at St. Olaf. We want to make sure that we are doing the kind of programming that YOU want to attend, and that our campus has the best policies for our community.
One of our main priorities this year is to ensure transparency between the student body and SGA. We want to make sure our friends and classmates know what we are all about! To sum up SGA, we are comprised of 10 branches, which you can read all about as you click through their different pages on our site. Our branches range from the Student Activities Committee, which programs fun events like campus movies and Homecoming Week, to the Board of Regents Student Committee, which facilitates conversation between the student body and the Board of Regents. Additionally, Student Senate is a part of SGA, and you’ll be getting information about elections for open positions in the next few weeks!
We are dedicated to making SGA the best it can be, so keep your eye out for our videos throughout the year that will help promote events and initiatives we’ll be taking. Be sure to stay connected through our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and of course, Oleville. Email with any questions or campus ideas!
