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!
