Happy Homecoming Gusties!

Posted on September 21st, 2010 by

Last night Gustavus kicked off this year’s homecoming week with.. drum roll please! Window painting! Umm… let me explain: each year during homecoming week Gustavus holds a week long competition amongst participating student led organizations who all compete for a grand prize of $1,000! The competitions range from the creative, like window painting to the hard core : dodgeball.. kind of, but nonetheless it’s a great chance for students to either participate in all of the events within their respective organizations or just watch the intense competition.

Homecoming also provides the opportunity for families of current Gustie students to spend the weekend enjoying the atmosphere at Gustavus with everything from a tour of St. Peter with a coffee shop stop at River Rock, a free family friendly movie (this year they’re showing Pixar’s Toy Story 3!) and of course the football game Saturday followed by a 5th quarter event featuring food fun and music. It’s different from high school homecoming but still has the same intense school spirit and a chance for alums to gather back to their alma maters to watch some football and see former fellow students they haven’t seen in awhile. For Gusties: have a safe and fun homecoming and for prospective students you can still visit us this Saturday and get a taste of Gustavus school spirit, but be warned it’s very addictive :)
