What is your overall opinion of this school?

Gustavus seems like a very connection and innovational college. Everyone is friendly, welcoming, and helpful. They are really dedicated to being progressive. and the campus is comfortable too. Although it is a smaller college in a more rural area it still seems to provide a quality education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Too expensive, but everyone does get some form of scholarship. Needs to make sustainability a larger priority on campus. Lots of food waste. One of the best-rated college cafeterias but the food is mediocre and overpriced. Some majors are overcrowded and getting into desired courses can be difficult due to small class sizes.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think Gustavus Adolphus College is a very good school. I was drawn here for a few reasons (mind you – I am an out-of-state student from Kentucky). First of all, I was looking for a small, liberal arts school with under 3,000 students. They only have maybe 2,200-2,400 as far as I know. In addition, their school takes the liberal arts education very seriously. Even though it is a Lutheran school, I am not a Lutheran, and they do not force their religion on anyone. They have many required general education requirements, which allows you to experience all fields – this definitely helps you make up your mind about what career field/path you want to pursue. There are people here from many different religious traditions, which the campus is overall very aware of and accepting of. It’s pretty diverse for the type of school it is, but could definitely be more diverse. I have already gotten to talk to various people of many walks of life, and this has made me very happy. I like getting to know people of all kinds. Also, I wanted a school with small class sizes, with professors who would actually remember your face and you as a person. I absolutely love it. They really make me feel like I matter here, since I am recognized by many of the staff and professors I have had. Especially my advisor – she is so sweet and caring. She is always there to help no matter what, and is always knowledgeable, or can lead me in the right direction when I need something. The food is really good for a college. They have vegetarian options, vegan options, gluten free options, and allergy warnings on the food. This is so incredibly important, and I really appreciate how hard they work to cater to everyone. Apparently, they have the best college food in Minnesota. One more thing to note is that they recently created a Peace, Justice, and Conflict Studies major, which is exactly what I wanted to do. So that’s why I am here! Highly recommend! (PS – they offer really good scholarships, in case you are in financial need like I am).

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I do really enjoy Gustavus. I think it has an amazing community and academic scene. I love the friends that I have made thus far and the classes have been really good. I've also enjoyed the food and the other services (health care, mail, store, etc) that are on campus. I'm just not a huge fan of the parking situation and campus safety good do a better job, whether it be for ticketing or for the safe ride services.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like it here at Gustavus. No school is perfect, but this school truly does it's best to take care of student needs. It can be a little isolated (since we are on a hill) but if you have a car (or a friend with a car), Mankato is really close and there is a lot to do there. In terms of academics, Gustavus absolutely can't be beat. The professors here really care about their jobs and the education you will get is fantastic. Also, there are tons of resources to help students with whatever they might need, great selection in the caf, and a gorgeous environmentally-conscious campus. I enjoy going to Gustavus immensely.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am so thrilled to be a part of the Gustavus community. Since coming to Gustavus, I have been able to be involved with many different organizations around campus and there are so many more opportunities. I am involved in sports, work, committees and volunteering. I am also involved in a Sorority on campus and it has been amazing seeing the campus from the Greek aspect as well. I would recommend this school time and time again as it has a great community and gives you so many opportunities to be involved and to gain leadership positions.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The education that Gustavus has to offer is unmatched. As a nursing major, if it weren't for the liberal arts aspect of the college, I wouldn't have been able to take, and find an interest in a variety of other subjects ranging from philosophy to cultural anthropology. Gustavus can be a hard place to be adjust to at first, especially if you're a minority (like me), but the school makes a tremendous effort of bridging any gaps, and administration always has an open ear. Go Gusties!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Gustavus Adolphus College is a Beautiful campus. Everyone is always welcomed and it really is a safe place to be. There is something for everyone. The professors are very very good with understanding that we are also athletes and they loveeee to keep up with the sports teams and come to the games! Coaches are also very understanding that as a D3 school we are student athletes and the student part comes first. There are so many resource at Gustavus for students to use when needing help with any class. Professors are very helpful and understanding. It is just a great place to be!
