GUSTIE CHATS: What Are We Thankful For?

As Gusties spend a few days resting at their homes all across the country, we asked input on what members of the Gustavus community is thankful for. Happy Thanksgiving!

“Gustavus parking lots, for reminding me that I am destined to never get it in.” -Kelsey, Sophomore

“J-Term. My dad is a substance abuse counselor. Months like January are what bring a turkey to our table every year.” -Aden, Junior

“Social justice theatre, for making theAnderson Theater seating even more uncomfortable than it was designed to be.” -Micah, First-Year

“Christ Chapel, for providing my armies a grounds from which to launch our invasion of the man-city of Minas Tirith. Ash nazg durbatuluûk, ash nazg gimbatul!” -Witch-King of Angmar, Visiting Assistant Professor

“Ethernet cables. I don’t have the endurance for long buffer times.” -Randy, Sophomore

“Medical Amnesty. It was great to know that when I released over 400 pages of highly classified documents on National Security Administration surveillance and misconduct, I could simply call (507) 922-7526 and the Dean of Students would take care of everything.” -Edward, Alumnus

“Politically-active Gusties, for reminding me that I do have a voice, as long as it is loud, angry, and liberal.” -Jonathon, Senior

“Academic budget cuts. Classes are hard, so it helps a lot when half of each lecture is filled with a rant about job insecurity.” -Colin, Sophomore

“My roommate’s girlfriend, for getting my roommate out of the room, so I can enjoy some ‘me time.’” -Craig, First-Year

“President Ohle, for giving the Gustavus community someone to rally around.” -Nicole, Junior

“Student loans, for giving me the opportunity to get 4 great years for the low, low price of 40 shitty ones.” -Ally, Senior
