In 2019, Governors State University will celebrate 50 years in Chicago’s Southland. Join us for various events designed to reunite all who have been part of the history of what makes Governors State University great.
GSU BIRTHDAY PARTY - DAY OF GIVING:
Come Join the Celebration!
Join us on Wednesday, July 17, 2019 as
Governors State University commemorates 50 years of excellence and innovation with a day of fun and family
and an evening of music and revelry at our annual Day of Giving Celebration.
The entire community will come together for a
free “family reunion” on campus and then board a complimentary bus to travel to Park Forest
Street Nights –
a free concert featuring Maggie Speaks and Theo Peoples.
The July 17 celebration is the inaugural
event that marks the founding of GSU with a Day of Giving to continue a legacy of education.
Conceived as a bold, new model to transform
lives through education in Chicago’s south suburbs, GSU opened the same week the U.S. sent Apollo 11
to the moon. Today, GSU is a full-service, four-year university celebrating 50 years of education,
service, and commitment to its mission to be an “intellectually stimulating public square.”
We advance our mission through high quality
programs supported by best practices, made possible in part, by the generous the support of our donors.
In honor of GSU’s 50th birthday, please join
us on Wednesday, July 17. And please consider donating $50 or more to commemorate the university's
anniversary and to support future GSU students.
