Dear Freshman Year Self

Your first year at Gonzaga will last a total of three minutes. You will form hundreds of memories, make lifelong friendships, and grow in numerous ways. You and your roommate will not become best friends, but you’ll realize that it’s okay to just be roommates.

Finding a Sense of Belonging

I’m going to admit an assumption as I begin writing this morning. Most of the parents and family members who are reading this are close to my age. I base this on my past years’ experience at Parent & Family Orientation and in the hope that, if I state it, my outdated pop-culture references will resonate with you.

Welcome from the Director of University Ministry

On behalf of the Mission and Ministry division of Gonzaga, welcome to our university!

Spotlight Program – BRIDGE

With the BRIDGE (Building Relationships in Diverse Gonzaga Environments) Pre-Orientation program going into its thirteenth year, it is clear that it has become engrained into generations of incoming students’ hearts and experiences here at Gonzaga University.

Empowering Transitions

Transitions can be hard, even for those of us who have experienced many of them in life. Now, take a moment to put yourself into your student’s shoes, about to embark on this new experience called, “college.”

Enrollment and Its Impact on Housing and Residence Life

Again, we are experiencing ‘over-enrollment’ this fall, coupled with over-enrollment from last fall- sophomores we also still house!

Technology @ GU

Gonzaga Information Technology Services (ITS) is dedicated to delivering high-quality technology to our faculty, staff and students.

What’s in a Career and Internship Fair?

As soon as students hit Bulldog Alley in late August, they have begun to make decisions about which event, which club, which activity NOT to miss!

Gonzaga Loves Logan

Gonzaga University is proud to be part of the Logan Neighborhood. The Logan Neighborhood consists of 67% rental properties, with many of those being occupied by GU students.

Special Diets are Our Specialty!

College is complicated enough; enjoying a meal at the resident dining hall doesn’t have to be! Choosing meals can present undue anxiety for the growing number of students who arrive on college campuses with food allergies or gluten intolerance.

The John J. Hemmingson Center: What’s Inside?

You might have seen the Hemmingson Center when you dropped your student off at GEL weekend, on a campus tour or maybe you heard about it from a family friend.

An Important Reminder from the Student Accounts Office

The Student Accounts office utilizes an Online Only billing process. Students are notified by email with a link to Zagweb and then to CASHNet where the bill can be viewed, printed and/or paid.

Health & Counseling Services—Students’ On-Campus Care Provider!

First, welcome to our parents who are new to the Zag Family!  We look forward to meeting you in August when you’re on campus!  For our returning parents, it’s hard to believe it’s almost time for another academic year, isn’t it?!
