After Gustavus Adolphus College

The campus is great and the staff are all wonderful, but I will not be returning after this semester. My housing experience is awful and I do not feel included here at all.

The campus is a very close-knit community. It's nice because you typically can get to know your professors fairly well, or at least they know you by name. The class sizes can vary from around 50 or so to 5. Campus is kind of in the middle of nowhere so it is easy to feel isolated from the world if you are not used to a rural area. Overall a fairly good school.

Gustavus is a great liberal arts college that can open so many doors and experiences. One needs to know who to talk to and confide in for support with in the faculty. Time defines all and after a year at Gustavus Adolphus College I found good professors, stocked up ones, passionate professors and some that were still trying to find out their own style. Not to mention how caring and devoted is both the staff and faculty.This place wants to see everyone succeed and as long as you show respect and drive anything can happen for you here.
