Showcasing Senior Artwork

“The subject matter of this series has personal connection with my past, my experiences of being on those fishing boats when I was little,  and I was very curious to why these boats have eyes, which you can see in the paintings. Painting things from Vietnam, which is where I’m from, brings back memories of traveling around Vietnam and I learned about many different aspects of Vietnamese culture,” Hoang said.

Starting Saturday May 2, the the Senior Art Majors Exhibition will be showcasing in the Hillstrom Museum of Art on the first floor of Jackson Campus Center. There will be an opening reception on Saturday during Honors Day from 4-6 […]

“There are so many different aspects that make my work meangingful to me. Seeing students progress and being a part of their journy through music to achieve artistry and observing their sense of accomplishment and appreciation of artistry when they experience it is my favorite part,” said Professor of Music and Gustavus Choir Director, Gregory Aune.

Make it OK campaign

On Monday, April 13 Nicollet Co. Public Health hosted the Make It OK campaign at Gustavus. Make It Ok is a campaign aiming towards reducing the stigma around mental health and making it more “OK” to be diagnosed with and receive treatment for mental illnesses. If we are able to talk about mental illness more openly, have the discussion with more people, and help others not feel ashamed of their illness, we would be able to guide them towards help sooner thus reducing long term effects of these illnesses.

Club Tennis named TOC Club of the Year

The Gustavus Club Tennis team received Club of the Year honors from the organization Tennis On Campus, the main organizer of club tennis events in the midwest. “Our program is an incredible place for students to play tennis and enjoy the community feel of students playing a sport they are passionate about, while encouraging each other to improve,” Junior Hannah Jakel told TOC.

Spanish 250 students collaborated with the Saint Peter community for more than a year in order to create 10 banners that introduce aspects of life in Saint Peter in Spanish. The goal of this project is to continue to foster the relationship between Saint Peter and its sister city Petatlán, Mexico. The full Spanish banner display is outside the CSL through March 25. The display will then travel to Petatlán during Spring Break with the 2015 Learning to Serve cohort as a gift from our community to theirs, fostering the values of the Sister City program of peace, mutual respect and understanding.
