Alumni Engagement

Gustavus values gathering and connecting with Gusties old and new and all who have given of their time, talent, and resources to the College. It is in this spirit that we describe the ways in which the College and alumni interact with one another.

We Gather

Homecoming | Fall ReunionsSpring Reunions | Summer Gatherings

The building of relationships is a critical part of what it means to be a Gustie. From the first day on the Hill to a 60th Class Reunion, Gustavus is an integral part of maintaining relationships for alumni and friends of the College. Gustavus offers a variety of ways for alumni and friends of the College to gather together. 

We Connect

Gusties Connect | Gribly | What's Next Initiative (coming Soon) | Social Networking

A connection to Gustavus and the resources offered by the College and College Alumni is a critical part of navigating the world after time on the Hill. Gustavus is committed to connecting graduates old and new so that they may fully utilize the College and the resources it offers.

We Give

Make A Gift | Gifts of Service | Mentoring | Refer a Gustie

The gift of a Gustavus expereince is made possible through the time, talents, and resources of the Gustavus community. Financial gifts ensure student access to the finest faculty and opportunites the College can provide. Through mentoring and direct service students see first hand what it means to live a life of service after time on the Hill.

In addition to the ways to gather, connect, and give mentioned above, Gustavus also encourages alumni stay connected to the College through these events.

  • Faculty and Administrator Service Awards Dinner- The College and the Gustavus Alumni Association recognizes retirees and the commitment of faculty and administrators who have served the College 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, and 45 years. The event typically is held the final day of spring semester classes.
  • Gustavus Alumni College- The Alumni Association offers alumni an opportunity to strengthen their passion for lifelong learning through innovative, intellectual and interactive seminars lead by Gustavus faculty, staff and fellow alumni. Alumni College is held in conjunction with Homecoming in the Fall and Spring Reunions.
  • Alumni BanquetThe annual Alumni Banquet is a celebration of the Gustavus Adolphus Alumni Association, the accomplishments, contributions, and profound impact of alumni to Gustavus, their communities, and greater society. During the banquet, the College recognizes the year's Alumni Association award winners, a group of outstanding Gustavus alumni and friends who each day live out our five pillars of service, community, justice, excellence and faith.
