Who Is SOLGEN? Among us are individuals who have been employed here for 15 years, for 5 years, or were recently hired. We are faculty. We are staff. Beyond the Hill, we live in the Twin Cities, in Northfield, in the country. Some of us are single, and others live in faithful committed relationships of 1, 10, or 20 years. We have children; we are St. Olaf parents; we are St. Olaf alumni. For the differences we have, we all share a commitment to the mission of St. Olaf College.
