  • I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    The campus is beautiful at any time of the year. Some of the students seemed as though they weren't very friendly though. Also, they like to party and drink a lot.

    I really enjoy the campus; the dorms are nice, the food in the cafeteria is delicious, and it's easy to get everywhere on campus. The people at Gustavus are really nice and fun. Everyone loves being a Gustie (our mascot). There is ALWAYS something going on at school, including the Nobel Conference, Mayday, volunteering programs, sporting events, and much more. I enjoy the extracurricular activities at Gustavus very much; most of the coaches at Gustavus are supportive and do a great job.

    I love it at Gustavus. There are a ton of quality people who are just fun to be around. There are a ton of clubs and things you can join (and most people do) to get connected and meet people with similar interests.
