First Year Involvement

My name is Amanda Oliver and I am YOUR Program GUide Saturday/Monday! I am a rising junior studying Public Relations with minors in Promotion and Visual Literacy. During my two years on campus so far, I have been involved with the Student Media office, the Office of Emergency Preparedness & Risk Management, the Payne Center for Leadership Development, and the Center for Community Engagement (CCE).

“It is what you make of it”

I am Sean Kimball, your Operations GUide for the First Year Experience Program. I’m a senior studying Business Administration with a concentration in Finance and a minor in Political Science. Coming into Gonzaga, I had six other students with me from my high school. I wasn’t too worried about college because I knew that I had people I could rely on. This mindset was something that caused me some problems when it came to living with people I didn’t know.
