What systems do you use to power this website?

This website is a “blog” on the Gustavus WordPress server. We designed a custom template to make the site work like a news website.  WordPress includes a very intuitive web-based system for adding stories, which helps us share more news each week.  We have had outstanding success with the system, and would recommend WordPress to anyone else interested in starting a blog or news website.  If you have any other questions about our setup, feel free to contact our Web Editor.

  1. Emily Orlaska says:

    I would like to know what the criteria are for choosing the Gustie of the Week. I feel that the people continuously featured do not represent the school body population as a whole — whether it be race, sexuality, or group affiliation.

  2. Rebecca Hare says:

    Gustie of the Week is chosen from a pool of nominations from students. All students are invited to submit nominations of students with a brief description of a recent accomplishment or involvement. The Weekly staff then choose a GOW based on relevance and the desire to represent the diversity of Gustavus (e.g. balance between organizations, genders, majors, Greek associations, etc.).
