On Thursday, November 2 the entire Gustavus Adolphus College community will come together for a day of giving as we celebrate Give to Gustavus Day!

Here is rundown of what to expect…


Give to Gustavus Day is our annual giving day. It is the biggest and best day to support the Gustavus Fund. The impact of these gifts are felt immediately as they get put to work right where they are needed most. Gusties from across the country and across the globe will have a chance to donate and help unlock challenges sponsored by other Gusties. The giving day will run from 6 a.m to 9 p.m. To find out more, visit the Give to Gustavus Day webpage.


New this year, we will also be hosting a livestream from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m from the Evelyn Young Dining Room. Tune in to watch online as livestream hosts Tim Kennedy ’82, Tom Young ’88, and Angela Erickson ’01 meet with with special faculty, staff, and student visitors all day.

Class of 1997 alumna Kara Buckner will be joining us all day as our livestream roving reporter. She’ll be popping into rehearsals, practices and public spaces to talk with students and give those off campus a chance to feel part of campus life for a day.

We’ll be ready to go beginning at 6 a.m. on Thursday! Learn more and give online, and be sure to use #FireUpTheRouser and #GivetoGustavus to share on social media!
