Twenty Things I'm Thankful for About Gustavus

Recently my roommate and I started talking about how crazy it is that we are more than halfway through college. She made the comment that we’ve been through more than we have left and I think that’s when it hit me. I love my school and I never want this part of my life to be over. I am so grateful to have been able to attend Gustavus for the past few years and since Thanksgiving is upon us, I figured there couldn’t be a better time to share a few things that I am thankful for about going to school here. So, here are 20 things that I am thankful for about Gustavus.
