    The Gustavus community is really welcoming, the professors are dedicated to and passionate about their jobs, and the students are happy to be there. Within just a semester at school I have made friends who I believe will last a lifetime. I am lucky to be able to attend such a fine institution.

    Gustavus is very personal, a lot of things are designed specifically with you in mind. Campus is relatively small (approx. 3000 students) so there is no problem getting attention from professors. Gustavus offers many different opportunities, and they are easy to work around.

    Gustavus provides an encouraging and supportive environment for students while continuing to allow freedom for students to openly explore their ideas and thoughts. The sense of community and the alumni connection is very strong. Gustavus professors are generally well-liked, although I have heard complaints regarding tenured professors.
