Have Faith in Your Future

An important part of finding the right college is knowing what you think is important, both about yourself and about the colleges you are considering.

We are focused on student success. From our small class sizes and dedicated professors to the substantial financial aid we offer to ensure that students can afford to attend one of our colleges, everything we do is for them.

So, go ahead and request additional information from any, or all, of our institutions. We hope to start a conversation with you about your future, and we hope to see you on one of our campuses soon!

Gustavus Adolphus College

I believe that the strength of the liberal arts education is its ability to produce well-rounded critical thinkers, which gives students at the ELCA colleges a tremendous advantage over their peers.
