Student profile: Monique Rondeau
Monique Rondeau grew up in Stillwater knowing she wanted to go to college — even though she would be the first person in her family to do so. She also knew she wanted to go to a small liberal arts college, and her research led her to St. Olaf College. “We did some campus tours and after the St. Olaf tour I knew it was going to be a good fit,” Rondeau said. While cost was a major consideration, it wasn’t the only factor she used to make her decision. “I looked at a couple other liberal arts colleges that I knew I could get a great education at, and they all gave me similar financial aid packages. I felt like I was going to be the most successful at St. Olaf,” she said.
