New Logo Means Changes. Starting with the "Brand Me G-U-S-T-I-E-S" marketing launch, the College has begun to use its new wordmark/logo to identify itself consistently in public. Following is what is available:
  • Those developing brochures and other print and visual publications should be using the new wordmark in those publications. Anyone needing the new images should see Eileen Holz in printing services or Steve Waldhauser in publications. Contracted vendors who need logos, artwork, or electronic files should contact Holz (x6272).
  • New letterhead, envelopes, and business cards consistent with the new wordmark have also been developed. The new general College letterhead will be available through printing services as current supplies of the previous letterhead are depleted. Envelopes will be available in 6" x 9", 9" x 12", 11" x 13", and #10 sizes, again as current supplies of the old stock run out.
  • However, personal letterhead templates are available immediately for office workstations. For those who have a PC, the proper template and instructions for installing and personalizing it are available by e-mailing a request to Steve Waldhauser (waldo@gustavus.edu) or by calling the Computer Center Helpline (x6111). For those who have a Mac, call the Helpline and ask for the Mac version of the template. (The "Univers" font needs to be available on the computer for the template to work correctly. If it is not, ask for it when requesting the template.)
  • Starting immediately, new orders for business cards will be printed using the new wordmark in a new format. Anyone needing new cards or who wants to move to the new design now should contact Barb Booren (x6213 or bbooren@gustavus.edu).
Photo and Story Contest... The Integrated Marketing Committee is looking for photos and stories that illustrate Gustavus' "Extraordinary People. Extraordinary Place." For more information, including the contest guidelines, go to http://gustavus.edu/publicrelations/contest.cfma. The submission deadline is May 1. For additional information regarding this contest, contact Jill Bisbee in
admission (x7680) or Susan Andrews in public relations (x6395).

Assistant Dean of Students Named... Patti Kelly (student activities) has accepted the position of assistant dean of students effective upon JoNes VanHecke's departure for graduate school. According to Dean of Students and Vice President for Student Affairs Hank Toutain, "Patti's professional background, demonstrated accomplishments in several areas of Student Affairs, and personal attributes made her an outstanding candidate for this position."

Money Raised for Battered Women... A 60-mile run on March 23 by members of the Gustavus Epsilon Pi Alpha fraternity raised about $6,000 for the Sojourner House in the Twin Cities. The Eppies ran from campus to the Sojourner House, a shelter for battered women and their children, in Hopkins. Along with the money that was raised, the runners also delivered a collection of teddy bears to the shelter, one of which was relayed the entire distance. The run ended a week of domestic violence awareness activities that were part of the 2002 Clothesline Project at Gustavus. The entire week was coordinated by the Eppies with co-sponsorship from various Gustavus organizations and included a hateful language workshop, a survivor's panel, a candlelight service, a bonfire, and a clothesline display in Christ Chapel.
