Nationwide Chapters

Gusties love connecting with other Gusties, even far from the Hill! Our chapters are organized by state and serve as the main link between Gustavus and alumni, parents, friends and students in a geographic region.

Volunteer Chapter Officers connect local Gusties with one another through events and gatherings throughout the year and serve as local experts for programs and departments on campus looking to engage in the area. We're always looking for additional Chapter Officers, so please fill out this form or contact the Alumni and Parent Engagement Office to let us know you're interested!
