Book that hotel for May 8-10, now! Gonzaga’s commencement weekend is the same dates as a nearby prominent state university, WSU. This means the hotels in Spokane fill up fast.
The main feature events for Commencement weekend include Mass on Saturday at 4pm, and the Undergraduate Commencement Ceremony on Sunday at 9:30am. There is no limit to the number of guests for these events, and no tickets are required. All are welcome at the Mass.
Friday evening gives focus to ROTC and social justice groups, and are by invitation only. The Nursing Pinning Ceremony is Saturday morning, and is by invitation only. Other academic department celebrations are typically Saturday.
Students are invited to order announcements and the required ceremony attire any time before March 2 to avoid late fees. A full-color flyer was mailed to senior parents on December 9 with instructions for ordering online or by mail.
