Hi Oles!

I am Rebecca Kunau, rising junior economics and political science major, and your Student Activities Committee Coordinator for the coming academic year. I couldn’t be more excited about seeing you all on campus in just a few short weeks!

This summer, I’ve been in Northfield and Minneapolis, splitting my time between taking photos and building websites for the St. Olaf Media Lab, family bonding, and an internship with a financial firm in the cities. The flexibility of this schedule has allowed me to take the time to explore events all over the Midwest- like sailing on Lake Superior and rocking out at Lollapalooza- and gather ideas about how to build community on the Hill!

The goal of Student Activities Committee is to intentionally build campus community and Ole pride by putting on events that bring students together. We organize Ole traditions like Homecoming Week, President’s Ball, and Senior Days, and are hoping to start some new traditions, too. Come cheer on Ole student-athletes and win SuperFan gear! Catch a movie with your roomie in Viking Theater! Combat illness with Tackle Cancer events and activities! And as just one of ten branches of SGA, there are events for every passion.

For information and event updates from SAC, like our Facebook page, follow us on Twitter and Instagram, or just add olethelion on Snapchat for up-to-the-minute deets. Event planning sound like your cup of tea? Applications for first years open on September 8th. Join the team!

If you have any suggestions for events, collaborations, or ways to shake up an Ole tradition, shoot me an email me at kunaur@stolaf.edu.
See you soon!
