How prominent is religious life at Gustavus Adolphus College?
Gustavus Adolphus College
We are a Lutheran affiliated school but not everyone who attends is Lutheran. We have students that represent almost every faith. We have services, resources, clubs, etc. that are available to all students but nothing is required. We encourage our students to explore their own faith, to ask questions, to be curious, to have discussions.
