Gustavus Adolphus College is excited to welcome the class of 2018 to campus on Friday, Aug. 29. With ongoing road construction in the St. Peter area, here are a few things to keep in mind as you make your way to campus:
Weather permitting, the detour on Highway 169 between St. Peter and Le Sueur is expected to be removed on Thursday, Aug. 28. Two-way traffic will be carried on the northbound lanes of Highway 169 until early October.
First-year students and their families should still use the Jefferson and Sunrise/Grace entrances to enter campus on the morning of Friday, Aug. 29. The College Avenue entrance will be EXIT ONLY for that morning.
Students and families coming from the NORTH on Highway 169 should turn right onto Broadway Avenue (first stop light in St. Peter on Highway 169, Taco Johns and Cornerstone Wellness are two of the businesses on that corner) and proceed up the hill, then turn left onto Sunrise Drive to use the Sunrise/Grace entrance.
Students and families coming from the SOUTH on Highway 169 should turn left onto Jefferson Avenue (Subway and Kwik Trip gas station are businesses on that corner) and proceed up the hill to enter via the Jefferson Avenue entrance.
Gustie Greeters and Campus Safety personnel will be at both entrances to help direct students and families to their respective residence halls.
The College Avenue entrance will be routed as EXIT ONLY from campus so please do not plan on driving up College Avenue to enter campus. Attempting to enter on College Avenue will result in you being re-routed to either the Jefferson or Sunrise/Grace entrances.
