Gustavus Spring Reunions
Gathering Again Atop the Hill
We welcome back the classes of 1950, 1955, 1960, 1965 & 1970 to celebrate with a reunion in the Spring around Commencement weekend. At this time, we will honor the Golden Gusties of the 50 Year Club, alumni who have graduated from the College more than 50 years ago.
Spring reunions will include a memorial service, Alumni College, social hour and campus tours. The weekend is capped off with the annual Gustavus Alumni Banquet, honoring the recipients of the year’s alumni awards. Weekend details and registration materials will be mailed to all alumni in March 2015.
Blocks of rooms have been reserved at the following Mankato hotels. Reservations must be made one month in advance. Mention Gustavus Spring Reunions when reserving your room.
