What Students Are Saying

4.25 Average Rating
Gustavus has a strong sense of community where there are plenty of opportunities to create lasting relationships. It is a Lutheran school but is very accepting of other religious practices. It's a great place to explore and learn about yourself.

Gustavus seems like a magical, beautiful place filled with hope and possibilities. I fell in love with the campus and wish to marry it, as with the speech program. I will make something of myself here and hopefully you will too.
