Gustavus Alumni Association

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.

Social Networking

We Give

The gift of a Gustavus expereince is made possible through the time, talents, and resources of the Gustavus community. Financial gifts ensure student access to the finest faculty and opportunites 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.
