About


36 hours. 21 teams. 1 campaign.

Rally together with Gustie sports fans, alumni, parents, current athletes and coaches to show our support for Gustavus Athletics during the first ever Give Like A Champion: Athletics Giving Day event.

While all of our student athletes are connected by a strong Gustie bond and commitment, every team has its own characteristics, personalities, and financial needs. From gaps in operating budgets, equipment updates, to travel and expanded opportunities to train and compete, our teams need your support! 

From 6 a.m. on February 7 until 6 p.m. on February 8, we will be lifting up the stories and voices of student and alumni athletes, parents, fans, and coaches as we strive to raise $250,000 in support of our varsity athletic teams, the Gustavus Athletic Training program, and the G-Club athletics general support fund. 

Support Gustavus Athletics on February 7-8! Your gift goes to support your team and enhances student-athlete experiences at Gustavus. Go Gusties!

A Look Behind the Scenes

Since the expansion of Lund Center opened in the spring of 2022, we have explored and enjoyed the beautiful new weight rooms, cardio floor, fitness rooms, and administrative spaces, but there has been one area accessible to only student athletes: the Athletes' Locker Room! Take a tour with Abby Vizenor '25.
