Gustavus provides so much individual attention to students. You get a mentor. You get an advisor that only works with one other student as a freshman. Small class sizes. Gustavus is dedicated to getting you a good education and having you get a degree within the four years.

This school really cares about money. If you are coming for an activity like speech do not come. But, its a great school. Come for teachers, friends, and the awesome food

The top three reason someone should attend Gustavus Adolphus College are that we bring events to you. Gustavus hosts a lot of events on Campus so that students would not feel homesick and so that you can meet other students and have fun. For example we had an elementary night where we got to finger paint, eat animal crackers and much more. It was very carefree and was a great way of getting away from your studies and taking a break temporarily. Another reason is joining an organization at Gustavus. Even though Gustavus does not have as many organization as many universities, they are always willing to start one for you. Not only that but it is a great way to get involved and meet many new people who to your surprise, might have the same interest as you. Not only that but the people in these organizations are all very supportive of each other and to outside organizations. Lastly, even though Gustavus is known as a Lutheran school, they DO NOT try to convert you. Instead, Gustavus is really accepting of who you are and identify as. You can be you without being judged for it.

The student body is unbelievable. All students are extremely welcoming and kind and make others feel accepted and appreciated. The academics are incredible, housing numerous areas of study, and some of the best professors and programs in those fields. Lastly, the teachers are incredible. Most classes are 20-30 students, allowing the teachers to know students on a personal level and truly care about what is best for them.

The number one reason for me is the sense of community. You literally can stop and have a conversation with just about anyone, and you'll really get to know them. We all are going to each other's events and standing behind each other whenever it's need. Next, I think that Gustavus really gives students the chance to succeed. The professors here are so understanding and really want you to do well and they welcome us in at all times. There is so many different clubs and resources on campus for you to get help that you may need. Everyone is looking out for each other. Lastly, Gustavus does a good job of getting you out in the field and getting you the experience and opportunities you need. 99% of the students after graduation will either have a job or be attending graduate school within six months, which is awesome. They want to help you figure out your life and find a place for you.
