Gustavus is participating in “A Day in the Life,” a research study exploring how students experience campus life at universities across the United States. We are looking for 20 Gusties who would be willing to participate in the study. Participants will respond to survey questions sent via text message on one day in mid-October and will then meet briefly with a member of the research team to describe what a day in a Gustie’s life is like.

This important research will help us to gain a better understanding of differences in the experience of students enrolled at various types of higher educational institutions and will give us insight into students’ experiences. We’ll also use what we learn from our volunteers to think about how to make your experience at Gustavus better. All research records will be kept strictly confidential.

Participants will receive $20 as a thank you for their time.

If you are willing to participate, or have questions about the study, please email Barbara Fister (
