IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE FOR ALUMNI, PARENTS, AND FRIENDS

Due to the prevalence and pace of the COVID-19 spread, Gustavus has taken measures to ensure the health of our community. Based on those developments, including executive orders enacted in Minnesota this week and recommendations from the CDC and MDH, we have postponed all events through May 15. While we'd love to see those who had planned to join us, the safety of all of you (as well as that of our staff) is a top priority.

As you can imagine, the evolving public health crisis and economic instability we're currently experiencing require us to examine the work we do and think creatively about how we might approach things differently in the coming weeks, possibly longer. Please know that we are hard at work to ensure that we continue to serve the alumni, parents, and friends of Gustavus through our commitment to the advancement of the College's mission.

As you may have heard, on-campus activities have been suspended at Gustavus, students have been asked to go home but have been given the option to stay if they have extenuating circumstances, students studying abroad have been brought back to the U.S., and faculty will continue instruction online starting March 30 for the remainder of the spring semester. If you're interested in learning more about Gustavus's overall response to COVID-19, please visit the website https://gustavus.edu/healthservice/coronavirus.

At this time, we intend to move ahead with planning for Reunion Weekend. We are encouraging reunion committee members to continue outreach to classmates, with the understanding that, as always, registrations are risk-free and fully refundable in the event we need to change course. We're hopeful that Reunion Weekend might serve as a beacon of hope and something that folks can look forward to as we navigate these trying times.

While we know this information may answer some of your questions, you're likely to have others. Feel free to email us with additional questions, and we'll gladly offer more details as we're able. You're also welcome to reach out directly to any member of our team.

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!

Gustavus values gathering and connecting with Gusties old and new and all who have given of their time, talent, and resources to the College. It is in this spirit that we describe the ways in which the College and alumni interact with one another.

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 Connect

A connection to Gustavus and the resources offered by the College and College Alumni is a critical part of navigating the world after time on the Hill. Gustavus is committed to connecting graduates old and new so that they may fully utilize the College and the resources it offers.

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.
