Emalise Luzzo (’16) was inspired by the way the fields of criminal justice and psychology can help provide people with the best life possible. That’s why she chose to double major in them at Gonzaga with a minor in history. She hopes to someday provide counseling for those affected by PTSD and other victims of crime. Eventually, she wants to continue her education through a master’s program in psychology.
Gonzaga appealed to Luzzo because of the school’s strong emphasis on a well-rounded, private education with small class sizes. For her, close relationships with her professors and fellow students were really important.
“I loved the homey feel I found at GU,” she said. “Everyone is friendly, everyone looks out for each other and the resources available are endless.”
Luzzo feels blessed to be at Gonzaga and would not have been able to do so without the scholarships and financial aid she received.
“I am immensely grateful for the generosity and selflessness from donors that make my education at Gonzaga possible,” she said. “Without these donations, so many students would not be able to attend such an excellent school like Gonzaga. I would like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. My scholarships mean my education at Gonzaga.”
