As the midterm rolls around each semester, students have the opportunity to check in with their faculty advisors, receive their mid-semester grades, and get a good sense of exactly what their progress is at the half-way point. While mid-term grades aren’t the most comprehensive representation of a student’s overall performance in a term (there are still tests to take, papers to write, presentations to execute), it is considered an important checkpoint for students to take stock and consider whether they need to make any changes.
I took this question lightly until I enrolled at Gonzaga University. Deciding on a college major is a huge decision that will impact my future. I was put at ease when I discovered I was not alone. Studies show that over 60% of college students change majors at least once during their college experience.
For many students, snagging the perfect job can be quite the feat in college. Most employers have a hard time working around a student’s busy schedule. That’s why a job with Zag Dining, Gonzaga’s food service provider, is a great fit. We’ve been partners with GU since 1959, and we understand the demands and schedules of school. Our priority is to provide student employees with job experience while supporting their educational endeavors.
In the last several weeks, college health providers have been paying close attention to an outbreak of bacterial meningitis at the University of Oregon. This outbreak has resulted in multiple students becoming ill and, tragically, one student death. In response to this outbreak, vaccine manufacturers were able to speed up production of newly approved meningitis vaccines.
Last day to order is April 17.
April 15, 2015, will mark the annual celebration of those who believe in Zags through their support the University. For this campus-wide event, students are invited to sign The Wall, share photographs and messages of gratitude on social media using the hashtag #ZagDonorLove, and sign “thank you” notes for the more than 14,409 donors who gave in support of Gonzaga last year.
