Bring Ice Home

St. Olaf is committed to building an on-campus ice arena that will foster stronger connections between athletics, academics, and wellness. The arena, connected to the Skoglund/Tostrud athletic complex, will engage the campus community in year-round ice-related opportunities for hockey and broomball players, curlers, skaters, and fans — all coming together in a central location that will support competitive success by seamlessly integrating athletic and recreational activities with academic pursuits.


For Every Ole

Supporting a campus community engaged in overall wellness
requires investment in modern facilities.


Raised so far


St. Olaf seeks gifts to build a modern, $8 million indoor ice arena with the capacity to greatly enhance the St. Olaf community. This facility places the college at the forefront of its peers in providing an outstanding resource to its active students, faculty, and staff.



What Oles Say

Coaches, athletes, and administrators talked to us about what this project would mean to them and to the community.

For Hockey

“I am so excited for the future of this program – for the men and the women to play on this rink, to get the community involved, to have students be involved.”

For the Fans

“I know there are students who want to go to the games; however, they don’t have the means of transportation to get there.”

For the Community

“Curling is a perfect addition to the St. Olaf culture. The entire game is based on respect for your opponent and respect for the game.”
