Frequently Asked Questions

Seat Naming

How much to name a seat?

A gift of $1,000 provides a donor the opportunity to name a single seat. No other benefits are expressed or implied.


How many seats can I name? 

Individuals and families may name up to four seats at a time online. To name more, you may complete additional orders through the website, or call 800-733-6523 for order assistance.


What can I include on my nameplate?

St. Olaf welcomes you to include your or your family’s name, or the names of others (students, athletes, coaches, friends, parents, clubs and organizations) you may instead wish to honor and recognize. Each nameplate will fit two 24-character lines (including spaces) of text. St. Olaf College reserves the right to review, approve, and edit text for length or content prior to placement. See below for examples.


Where will my nameplate be placed?

The nameplate will be permanently attached to the seat back.


How long will the nameplate remain?

The nameplate will remain for the life of the seat; seats last approximately 30 years.


Where will my named seat be in the arena?

Nameplates will be randomly placed on seats although multiple seats bearing recognition requested by the same donor will be placed together.


Will the seat I name be mine for events in the arena?

No. The nameplate recognizes your gift (thank you!) but does not reserve your seat or guarantee admission to any arena event.


Why does my gift support both arena construction and the St. Olaf Fund?

Building support for St. Olaf athletics operations and this new facility are included in St. Olaf College’s $200 million For the Hill and Beyond comprehensive campaign. The St. Olaf Fund provides annual operating support to the college and its programming. This support is needed to help advance ice-related programs in preparation for the new arena and its operations.
