My review

The Good:

The scenery is nice and the stark contrast between the seasons is pretty cool.

The Bad:

The students that go there. Most are superficially nice but rude jerks when it comes down to it. The school has numerous cliques and students are generally not inclusive. Most tend to be from Minnesota and many tend to have elitist mentality, which is funny since the students there are generally far below average looking - typical of Minnesotans. Also, TONS of bugs! Your legs will get bit beyond belief in your sleep, especially during summer!

Would I do it again?

No, Non-existent nightlife, transportation options are inconvenient and expensive, the school charges way too much compared to what you actually receive in return, students are jerks. There's no way I'd ever relive the St. Olaf experience.
