Gustavus Alumni Association

Fire up the rouser to celebrate a new school year and new opportunities to connect!

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.



COVID-19 guidelines and moving forward

Visitors to campus need to follow the current campus COVID-19 protocols, which may change throughout the year based on transmission rates in the county, state, and on campus. Daily visitors do not need to be vaccinated, show proof of vaccination, or take a COVID-19 test before coming to campus.

Masks must be worn indoors on campus in an abundance of caution to keep our community safe and healthy.

If you're interested in learning more about Gustavus's overall response to COVID-19, please visit the website https://gustavus.edu/healthservice/coronavirus.

We are incredibly grateful for your support of Gustavus and one another, and we know that, in times like these, we all can count on our Gustie community to help us emerge even stronger on the other side. Take care of yourselves - GO GUSTIES!
