Local student studying environmental studies in Australia


Mon, Feb 22nd, 2010
Posted in Education

Katherine Halvorson from Peterson, a student at St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota, is spending this semester pursuing her studies in environmental studies in Australia.

According to Open Doors, the comprehensive information resource on the more than 200,000 U.S. students who study abroad as part of their academic experience, St. Olaf had the second largest number of students participating in study abroad opportunities among all baccalaureate institutions in the nation. Of the senior class that graduated from St. Olaf last year, for example, 76 percent studied in off-campus programs at least once, and 70 percent of those students participated in an international program.

Founded in 1874 by Norwegian Lutheran immigrants, St. Olaf is a nationally ranked liberal arts college of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America located 40 miles south of the Twin Cities. Its 3,000 students work closely with dedicated professors who challenge them to grow in mind, body and spirit. In addition to its world-class programs in music and mathematics, St. Olaf is recognized for its innovative approaches to undergraduate science education, long-standing engagement in global education and commitment to environmental sustainability. Since 1996 the college has produced more Rhodes Scholars than any other liberal arts college in the nation, including two in 2008. For more information visit stolaf.edu.
