Gustavus Recruitment Network

The Gustavus Recruitment Network is a volunteer network of Gustavus Adolphus College alumni and friends who actively support the work of the Admission Office to increase applicants and admissions to the College. The GRN is a partnership between the Office of Church Relations, the Admission Office, and the Office of Alumni Relations.

The GRN is a unique way to make a profound impact on the future of Gustavus Adolphus College. The Admission Office at Gustavus is extremely strong and works very hard to recruit the best possible students to campus. You can help by encouraging students to apply, congratulating them on their acceptance, and sharing your Gustavus story.

Training is provided, as well as talking points and specific instructions on how to get the information back to us.

Training Information

Once you are registered to be part of the Gustavus Recruitment Network, you will receive an e-mail with a list of students to call. Before you make any phone calls, check out the videos that the Admission Office has created. These videos are the best way to catch up on what is happening at the College now and to give you some great talking points for the phone calls. View the phoning guidelines and suggestions for tips about making the phone call. There are two versions, one for the phone calls in November through February (Congratulatory Calls) and one for March and April (Deposit Calls).

After the phone calls have been made, please fill out the online form and we will get that information to the Admission Office.

Thank you so much!
