Class of 1965

We hope you will keep connecting with your classmates throughout the years. Please use the "Submit Your News" button to the left to share what's been happneing in your life. Volunteering now that your retired? Going on a fund trip? Visiting some Gusties in a different place? These are all things we would all love to hear about!

At our last reunion, our class started the 1965 Class Endowed Scholarship fund to help support the current and future Gusties at Gustavus. This fund will provide tuition assistance to students when it reaches $25,000 and will do so infinitely! As we look forward to celebrating our 50th reunion in 2015, our goal is to raise the remaining $15,000 needed to make this an active fund and to begin our class legacy. Together, we can do it!
