Student & Graduate Reviews

"Small and cozy environment, everyone is friendly and nice along with being helpful to first year students. The campus is easy to navigate and beautiful. Dorms are larger than some others I had toured, and they offer extremely generous scholarships. There just isn;t as much to do on weekends and if you don't have a car you may feel stuck."

"Gustavus was a lovely place to receive my undergraduate degree. They offered me a great financial aid package and it was a small enough community that I could get involved easily. St. Peter is a good college town which was cole enough to Minneapolis to make it an easy commute, but far enough away that I didn't feel like I was still in the cities. If you are looking for an intimate community with a knowledgeable and welcoming staff, Gustavus is the place for you!"

"Gustavus Adolphus College is an excellent small, liberal arts college. There is an abundance of opportunities to get involved in every aspect of the campus. The professors are easily accessible to converse with and the classes are a challenge intellectually. Most important you are a part of a community at Gustavus and therefore not just a number to the Admissions Office."

"Gustavus is more than a college, it is a community and a home. It prepares you for all future endeavors regardless of your field of study. The faculty is amazing and very helpful with whatever questions you may have. The students are so extremely caring and genuine. The sticker price is very high but with academic scholarships and grants provided by the college it is very possible to go here. I recommend applying and seeing what the college provides you with as far as a financial package goes."

"Gustavus Adolphus College is a 4 year, private, liberal arts college. While it comes at a price, the school offers a great deal of financial aid and fosters a very open community. All classes are on campus, and the class sizes are small. The professors are the best in the business."
