2016-2017 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.
