Session Descriptions

Your Next Steps Tours
Join a small group guided tour to meet and explore the "good-to-know" people and places at Gustavus. We'll stop by the Academic Support Center to learn about class registration, visit with the Residential Life staff, find the Financial aid/Student Accounts Office, and hear about orientation from a Gustie Greeter. Along the way, you can meet representatives and ask a few questions about the Bookmark, Health Services, Counseling Center, Career Development, Center for Inclusive Excellence, and more.

Parent & Student Sessions
Parents, we'll take you up to our third floor lounge in Lund Athletic Center where you can check out the view and connect with current Gustie parents and administrators.
Students, join current and future Gusties for mixers and casual conversation in the Center for Inclusive Excellence.

Taste of St. Peter Social Hour
Grab a variety of complimentary local snacks and enjoy a spring day in the Johns Family Courtyard. During this time, you also may sit down for an individual financial aid conversation or visit our first-year residence hall options.
