Whether you will be involved in the college search process right from the start or plan to be “supportively hands-off,” we hope you will talk with your son or daughter about all their college options.
What does your child need? What are your expectations? While the college choice is ultimately the student’s, parents are an integral part of the decision.
Our mission statement guides our decisions and our five core values define our goals. Gustavus has a clear vision for its future.
With 71 majors and 15 pre-professional programs at Gustavus, your child can follow their passion—or discover new ones.
Within six months of graduation an average of 97% of recent Gustavus grads are situated—in grad school, a job, or another experience (like Peace Corps or intentionally traveling). Explore our alumni accomplishments and the career center resources to get there.
From conversation starters to primers on college life to dates and phone numbers, our website for parents of current Gusties can be a useful tool for prospective parents.
Get answers to nearly 80 frequently asked questions—they’re easily searchable.
