Celebration of Philanthropy

Giving

The students, staff, and faculty at Gustavus Adolphus College are extremely grateful for all our alumni, parents, and friends do to support the learning that happens here on the Hill. This week we Celebrate Philanthropy by talking with our students about the importance of "paying it forward" and sharing the stories of gratitude of our community.

So thank you to all of you who make Gustavus an amazing place to learn, to live, and to work.
