2015-2016 Visit Events


You're invited to join us for any of the following events. While we also want you to arrange a personal campus visit at some point during the college search, these group visit events are great ways to explore Gustavus.

So that the content and timing of each event best matches your stage in the college search, we've listed the intended audience. If your only chance to visit Gustavus doesn't match a particular visit event, call us to talk about your options.

We'll post the specific schedules as each event nears. To register for an event for which we are ready to accept reservations, click the active link listed under the events.


Gustie for a Day

President's Day - Monday, February 15, 2016

Seniors only; family and friends

What's Distinctive?
Other than individual visits and the Experience Gustavus visit event, this is the only opportunity to sit in on actual Gustavus courses.

Use your day off school to become a Gustie for a day: go to a class, hear from Gustavus students, learn about financial aid, investigate our Career Center, explore studying abroad, attend a rehearsal or practice, tour a residence hall, and more. What's a "Gustie?" Any member of the Gustavus community can be called a "Gustie"--from current students, staff, and administrators to our network of more than 27,000 alumni. Our athletes are the "Golden Gusties," and our mascot is Gus the Lion!
