Overview of the 2015-16 Housing Selection Process for Returning Residents

The room selection process for the next academic year begins with the submittal of an application in January. Returning residents, who are not required to reside on-campus as of the fall semester, will make their room selection in February, while those required to reside on-campus will make their room selections in March.

CCASL – 20 Years and Beyond

Two beat-up metal desks, a 286 computer with no mouse and a DOS operating system, three student employees and one established service program: humble beginnings for what would become the hub of volunteering and community engagement at Gonzaga! Twenty years later, the Center for Community Action and Service Learning (CCASL, pronounced “Castle”) has changed the lives of thousands of Gonzaga students and significantly impacted the Spokane community.

Millennials @Mass

Millennials take a lot of heat… and not just from their parents! Around the university, you sometimes hear an exhausted professor drop the occasional Millennial slur, whether it’s their “lack of resilience,” their “therapeutic culture” or worse, their “need” (always a negative) to be constantly connected, often by social media.

Letter to Seniors

Maybe the appropriate introductory phrase here might be “once upon a time” as to when I was a senior at GU and earned my BA in Journalism/Economics. And that’s because the date was in 1957…if you can imagine that!

Zag Dining’s Better Tomorrow Plan

During this past Fall Family Weekend, many families were able to experience Zag Dining by Sodexo. From the expansive Marketplace at the BARC, to the eclectic bistros, the Gonzaga campus is full of options. These dining facilities have more to offer than what meets the eye though. Take a look behind the kitchen doors and what you will find is a Better Tomorrow.

Juniors and Seniors Can Live On Campus Too!

Gonzaga University Department of Housing and Residence Life strives to be a comprehensive housing service to all students, including those who do not wish to live in University owned/managed properties.

The First Visit Home

For many of our students, the first time they visit home as a college student will be during the Thanksgiving break. This visit is almost always a time our students look forward to, as it is a well-deserved break from the daily pressures of college and academic life.

First Six Weeks at Gonzaga

The first semester of college is one of the biggest anticipated transitions our students will face in their lives. Our goal is to help them transition in, through and out of this time while figuring out who they are, making new friendships and excelling in college level courses.
