Gusties have busy schedules, yet each Tuesday several students take a break to just hang out. Not with their peers, but with children in the St. Peter area through the Gustie Buddies program. The program to mentor developmentally delayed youth was created five years ago by two Gustavus students working with the college's Community Service Center.
Some students leave Gustavus with a clear plan for their life; others choose to be surprised by the path on which life takes them and hope for the best. Gustavus alumnus Abby Andrusko '00 fits in the latter category. Her path to becoming a small business owner came about through many twists and turns until she found herself combining a passion with a product of which she could be proud. Andrusko's Grass Fed Cattle Co. is a venture that offers naturally raised and local grass-fed beef as a convenient and affordable health-food option to residents in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area.
