This is Courtney Brown, your 2019 IGNITE Blog administrator and marketing intern for First Year Experience Programs. FYEP is a dedicated group of students and staff who design your first weekend on campus to promote academic and social success throughout your time as a GU student. Our mission is to make your transition to Gonzaga feel like coming home.
This blog will help you get to know Gonzaga and some of the people here before we get to meet you all at Orientation weekend! It provides tips and tricks from students, professors and faculty, through their personalized stories and descriptions of what it means to be a Zag. Contributors will share how they are living out the Gonzaga Mission Statement, and provide ideas for what you can get involved with here. This blog will also serve as a resource guide to some of the tools that will soon be at your disposal.
Browse through older articles to gain wisdom of staff and graduates, and if there is a specific topic that you are interested in, use the search bar to look it up. For example, search “Transfer” if you want to read the stories of GU transfer students.
Check in Tuesday’s and Thursday’s for new content, and explore the archives for stories from previous years. You made a great choice in Gonzaga, and we hope that every new day here will prove that to you.
We are so excited for you to join our Zag family!
