Buntrock Commons

JDB
The Buntrock Commons opened on November 5, 1999. Funded by the largest single donation ever made to a Lutheran school ($26 million, by Dean Buntrock, Ole '55, and his family), it almost doubled the space available for student activities. The Buntrock Commons houses the bookstore, a small theater, the cafeteria (food service by Bon Appetit), the Cage (coffee shop), the Pause (a nightclub, modeled in part on the Twin Cities' First Ave), Student Government offices, student radio station (KSTO), the student newspaper office, the yearbook office and more. While a building cannot by itself change the nature of a school, the new Commons is located directly between the Library and Boe Chapel, and is viewed as a crossroads between the academic and spiritual life of the college. Modeled by James Bayless, textured by Nate Caple. #Buntrock #Buntrock_Commons #Commons #Olaf #St_Olaf #St_Olaf_College
