Student Organizations

Philosophy and Information

Student clubs and organizations at Gustavus Adolphus College provide the campus community with activities, programs, and resources that enhance the quality of student life. Students who participate in co-curricular activities are more likely to succeed at both personal and professional goals, develop leadership skills, form lasting friendships with peers and learn more about a chosen career field.

This growth is only possible when organizations promote Gustavus’ core values of Excellence, Community, Justice, Service, and Faith. Groups and individuals live these values by:

  • Supporting members’ physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing.
  • Contributing to members’ academic goals and successes.
  • Promoting civility and respectful treatment of one another.
  • Protecting members from manipulation, exploitation, or degradation of any nature.
  • Fostering relationships build on trust, acceptance, honesty, and mutual respect.


Student Orgs, it's time to think about your office, storage, and meeting space needs for next year! Using the spaces in the Gustie Den is a great opportunity for storage, meeting spaces, and other student organization needs.

Please apply for these spaces by Wednesday, April 25th vis this google form:

Please also know that student groups requesting an office space will be required to utilize their space beyond storage (meetings, office hours, etc).
