Counseling Center


Welcome new and returning students! We wanted to bring your attention to this online workshop Surviving Through Thriving: Resilience Skills for College Students in Uncertain Times. It runs August 11th, 18th, and 25th. Follow the link for further information.

Hello, welcome to the Counseling Center website. We are glad you are here. The Counseling Center works with Gustavus students to enhance their personal development and academic achievement. At times, students experience personal, relational, social, or academic difficulties which they cannot fully resolve on their own, and find it helpful to talk to a professional counselor about their concerns. In order to help students with such difficulties, the Counseling Center provides a variety of confidential services.


COVID-19 Update:

The Counseling Center is currently closed for the summer months. You are welcome to call anytime after August 15th to start scheduling appointments for the academic year. This page will be updated as we determine how these appointments will look in light of the pandemic.

At any time, if you need assistance finding and establishing local mental health care, please call us at 507-933-7027. We will do our best to help you find care where you are located.
