  1. 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. 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.).
