What Students Are Saying

4.25 Average Rating
Always take two visits. The first time will be so much broader but when you visit a campus for the second time you are able to see it in a better light and see things you didn't necessarily notice before!
Caitlin from MN
transfer in as many ap or college-credit classes as you can! it saves tons of time and money. look at the academic catalog and have a rough idea of what you're interested in or what you think you want to major in. this makes registering for classes so much easier and can save you from taking unnecessary classes.
carlie from virginia, mn
One tip is not to be scared off by the price. There are plenty of scholarships and grants available to help reduce the amount a student needs to actually pay. Also, don't come into Gustavus necessarily set on one area of study but use the first year to explore different areas because there may be something that becomes more appealing and then there is no committment made. If Gustavus is your choice and you do come here, use the resources available, such as the career center and health services and join clubs and groups and activities that seem interesting. Becoming involved in even just one activity will help make your first year less overwhelming.
Ashlie from Duluth, MN
Take in consideration what you want to do with your college experience. If you figure out what you want your major(s) to be, you can easily double major, with a few minors. Also, get in touch with your admission counselor, and don't be afraid to ask questions. It is important to find the college that is right for you.
Ava from Fairbanks, AK
Visit Gustavus a couple of times because you will notice something new everytime. Also, doing an overnight stay at Gustavus really gives you a feel of what it is like to go to school here.
Erica from Burnsville, MN
-visit the campus in the spring or the fall- it is gorgeous!
- talk to current Gusties and ask them your questions, they would love to tell you about the school!
-sit in on a class in your major to get a feel for the academics
- apply for all the scholarships you can

Alyssa from Crystal, MN
Living your first year gives you three that fit into two different styles. Pittman and Sohre are a more laid back feel where as Noreilus (Co-ed) is more of a partying, social style.
Tanner from Ham Lake, MN
At the very least, check out Gustavus especially if Financial Aid is important to you
David from Apple Valley, MN
Go to things like involvement fairs or activities where you can meet people. Strive to maintain those relationships as knowing people is a huge blessing.
