At Gonzaga, we are so grateful for the many generous donors who help to ensure that talent, ambition, academic excellence and the desire to serve others play the largest role in student selection. Donors allow GU to maintain focus on these qualities and sustain the accessibility of the Gonzaga experience, and for that, we are very thankful.
While speaking at Bladensburg High School in Bladensburg, Md. this morning, President Obama shared a similar priority of accessibility, which was tweeted by the official White House twitter account:
“No young person should be denied a higher education just because your family has trouble affording it” —President Obama #CollegeOpportunity
