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.
  • Save the date for the Involvement Fair on Tuesday, September 11th from 4-6:30pm in the Eckman Mall.
    • This event is an excellent opportunity to not only discover new organizations but also to promote your own and become more acquainted with the Saint Peter community. Reserve your spot here.
  • All new student organizations must submit recognition materials and complete SLOT training (below) by Friday, September 21st. Please see the "Create Organization" tab at the left side of this page for complete instructions.
  • All current student organizations must update their officer contacts and organization information by September 21st in order to remain recognized this academic year.
