2014-2015 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.

Minnesota Private College Week

Monday-Friday, June 22-26, 2015

Sophomores, juniors, & seniors; friends and family

What's Distinctive?
Seventeen of Minnesota's best private colleges and universities offer visit events at 9:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. each day this week.

This week of half-day (morning or afternoon) visits gives prospective students a quick preview of Gustavus' programs, facilities, and people. While you'll want to come back to campus to get more in-depth information, "MPCW" is a great way to start your college search and get a first impression of Gustavus through campus tours, presentations, and conversations. If you have time, please enjoy lunch in our nationally-ranked cafeteria.

The Minnesota Private College Week Schedule will be posted here in early June.

Please register through the Minnesota Private College Week webpage.
