Gustavus Alumni Association

Welcome home, Gusties

Welcome Gusties to your portal to all things alumni. We are so grateful you’re here!

As a student, you mastered new skills, built strong friendships, and collected life lessons that helped prepare you to go out into the world and take on the great challenges of our time. Now that you’ve graduated to alumni status, we invite you to plug back into the College to further enrich your life and that of current students through alumni networking events, volunteer opportunities, and Gustavus celebrations on and off the Hill. 

With 28,000 alumni across the nation and the globe, the Gustie community excels in maintaining a deep connection to Gustavus’s core values. The Office of Alumni and Parent Engagement strives to bolster that connection by providing meaningful and straightforward ways to bring our community together to celebrate all that makes us proud to be Gusties.


We Gather

The building of relationships is a critical part of what it means to be a Gustie. From the first day on the Hill to a 60th Class Reunion, Gustavus is an integral part of maintaining relationships for alumni and friends of the College. Gustavus offers a variety of ways for alumni and friends of the College to gather together.

We Give

The gift of a Gustavus experience is made possible through the time, talents, and resources of the Gustavus community. Financial gifts ensure student access to the finest faculty and opportunities the College can provide. Through mentoring and direct service students see first hand what it means to live a life of service after time on the Hill.
