“I guess what I’m saying is that, for better or for worse, it’s not possible to escape the unique environment that Gustavus presents. If you’re here then you’ve already been changed by it. Complain all you want about the quirks that make this place what it is: there’s nothing more to do than embrace the time that you have here and live it to the fullest because for all of its faults, you are home here. Gustavus is community: we know you, we own you, we are you and you are us. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile, and that’s a good thing.”  Phil Knoll ’03, Gustavian Weekly, May 2, 2003
