A Royal Affair

The Gustie Gala

It’s time to gather for a night of fun and festivities with the Gustavus family at A Royal Affair!

After two years of pandemic limitations on social interaction, we are excited to see everyone in person for our biennial fundraiser with food, drinks, music, dancing, and an auction—all of it supporting access to learning for the talented students, faculty, and staff at Gustavus Adolphus College! 

Dust off your Gustie crown and attend this gala you and your friends won’t want to miss.
