Here’s our mission statement

Gonzaga University’s New Student Orientation empowers students to ignite their Gonzaga spirit through intellectual, social, and personal development. GUide Core aspires to provide opportunities of engagement between the new students and the Gonzaga community, learning from one another in reciprocal relationship through questioning, conversation, kinship, and support.

Again, welcome to Gonzaga — and Go Zags!
