A Semester Abroad

This past fall, I went to Costa Rica as a part of a study abroad program. While abroad, I studied ecology and conservation. Two professors from the US taught our biology courses, while native Costa Ricans taught our Spanish classes. Alongside 26 other students, I hiked through tropical rainforests, camped 20 feet from the pacific […]


Before entering college, I was one of those lucky individuals whose mother often did their laundry (by often I mean always). Upon entering college, there were so many exciting events occurring in my life that doing laundry was often neglected (by often I mean always).

Spring Returns to St. Peter

Birds chirping, green grass, shorts, and increased outdoor activity usually signal that spring has yet again returned to St. Peter.

Housing Selection

Every spring semester, Gustavus students begin the process of selecting a place to live for the following academic year. Students are able to choose between dorms, apartments, single rooms, suites, and off-campus houses. Usually, the dorms are reserved for first year and sophomore students, while the upper-class Gusties live in apartments and other housing options. […]
