The Great Gustie Gathering

The Great Gustie Gathering known as Homecoming happens every Fall to celebrate and reminisce on everything good about Gustavus. Return to St. Peter to relive “the Hill” with your family, fellow alumni, current students, and the greater Gustavus community.

  • Come home to campus and we guarantee you will enjoy a unique selection of events and programs that will make your return to Gustavus unforgettable.
  • Learn from Gustavus faculty and alumni on a variety of topics at Alumni College. Explore today's campus with special tours. Eat lunch under the Homecoming Tent. Reunite with friends (and meet alumni you might not have known).
  • Opportunities for the Gustavus greater community to get together come along only once each year. This is your year to create a Homecoming experience and memory for you and your family.

Alumni College

Gusties have a passion for lifelong learning, though maybe not for quizzes. We are proud to offer Alumni College, a series of presentations and lectures by current and emeritus faculty and distinguished alumni. Alumni College currently happens at Homecoming/Fall Reunions and at Commencement/Spring Reunions.

Homecoming Tent

The Homecoming tent will be open from 11:00 am - 8:00 pm on Homecoming Saturday. Enjoy fresh kettle corn, the all-Gustie lunch and live music starting at 3:00 pm. For the kids and kids at heart, inflateables will be set up just outside of the tent. New this year will be a beer garden connected to the Homecoming tent serving Schell's beer and Chankaska wine.
