Gustie Greeters and Orientation Groups

Gustie Greeters


Gustie Greeters are a group of upperclass student leaders who plan, organize, and lead incoming students through New Student Orientation. Each Gustie Greeter leads activities, discussions, and events during the four day Orientation program, and throughout the entire year. Gustie Greeters are resources, friends, mentors, and leaders on campus for incoming students. The Orientation program is designed to offer incoming students an easier transition to their new life at Gustavus. Gustie Greeters answer questions, provide support, organize activities to meet other new students, and generally help incoming students through the "bumps" college life can present.

Orientation Groups


Incoming students are divided into small groups based upon the FTS selection or Three Crowns Curriculium, and a Gustie Greeter is paired with a faculty member to assist the Orientation group with discussions and activities all year long. Orientation groups are a wonderful way to meet other new students.
