Yes. There is a study-abroad option for the Washington Internship Institute, as well as a more generic Washington, D.C. semester. St. Olaf is really great about working with their students interested in studying off-campus or abroad, and usually if you have a plan, they are willing to make it work.
Yes! I know of a person who is doing an internship in D.C this summer, the career and internships center on campus is very helpful and provides you will guidelines to help you land the internship!
The piper center on campus might be able to help with that. They handle all internship type stuff.

The professors are the most notable element of St. Olaf's academics. They are all, for the most part, extremely accessible, personable, and caring. They exhibit a genuine passion for their respective subjects and, more importantly, for teaching undergraduate students. St. Olaf is proud to be a school, not a research facility. While professors can and do engage in independent research and writing, teaching is the primary reason they are here. The fact that Olaf is an undergraduate-only institution ensures that no professors are forced into introductory courses when they would rather be working with graduate students. It also means that all courses will be taught by professors and not TAs or graduate students.
Academic competition at Olaf is never a problem. The winner of an essay contest is always met with authentic congratulations from other entrants. There is never any sort of problem with student sabotage in science labs, and students are always helping one another with studying for exams. Almost all Oles strive to do their personal best rather than simply outdo their peers. It is impossible to gage the difficulty of classes at Olaf. It totally depends on each individual student's goals, work ethic, and drive. One thing you can certainly count on is that, over four years, every student will have taken plenty of truly challenging classes.
