Class of 1986

30-Year Reunion, October 1, 2016

It's hard to believe it's been 30 years since we spent our time at Gustavus! So much has happened in our lives since then, and it'll be great to get back to campus for our reunion to reconnect with old friends and acquaintances, reminisce about our time on The Hill and celebrate Gustavus' past, present and future. Here is the schedule for our class:
