Gonzaga is a wonderful school to go to with a very close community. As a smaller school we have access to our professors along with small class sizes. There are tons of ways to get involved with the school and the community through sports, clubs, and extracurriculars. As a small school its great to have a strong basketball team because the whole school goes wild for games both in the kennel and at watch parties.
Gonzaga has an extremely beautiful campus. It is perfect for taking walks in and enjoying the scenery. The campus is usually quiet and peaceful. I enjoyed the multiple places around campus to study at, including the student center, student housing buildings, and a Starbucks next to the campus. Overall, I enjoyed studying at Gonzaga University.
SO good love everything about I am class of 2021 in Rogers high school when I start school there I was so happy and when I see students from Gonzaga come and talk how great the school is I get really interest in it every time someone talks about it and there some students come to our leadership class and talk with us it so much fun being with them.
I chose to go to Gonzaga because of their claim of inclusivity and diversity. Let me tell you, things are very different once you are a student (if you identify as nonwhite and have grown up around a nonwhite community). In the beginning, they have Bridge where new non-white incoming students can join and spend a weekend together to get to know one another. I learned that members of this club ended up being together the rest of their time at GU. The culture is different than the surrounding city. Spokane has a lot of homeless individuals and a drug problem, you will get the sense of it once you drive through downtown. My last year at GU I decided to study how nonwhite students felt at GU and how their overall experience was. Not only did these individuals recognize the difference in advertisements and the actual student body, but most had similar experiences off-campus with the Spokane community feeling unwelcome. Multiracial students that I spoke to were often asked "what are you?" when they first arrived.
If you are thinking of going here, I highly recommend reaching out to former or current students that you can relate to to get an idea of what it might be like for you. I felt very isolated and I had no idea other student's were having the same experiences as me and I think it is because of the lack of diverse space. The cultural clubs are all together in one area and if you are a part of a cultural club, it is hard to get funding and support like the athletes do. Events for cultural clubs are there but do not have as much participation as they should.
I love the lessons I learned at GU and the professors, but be weary of their claim to inclusivity and judge it for yourself before you jump in.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for Gonzaga University is 67%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
There was a time when I was completely satisfied with being smarter than the student sitting next to me. However, this does not necessarily make you a top student. Never judge your standards by the person next to you. Reach your potential pillar by personally measuring your abilities. Understand who you are and how much you can push yourself. Discover your inner discipline and resources and not just what it takes to beat your classmates. Pace, strengthen, and push yourself. Run your own race and focus on only your lane. Reach that finish line invigorated and proud instead of gasping to beat the runner next to you.
Extremely driven and motivated, with the majority of them coming from private school backgrounds, and a rich family tradition of attending Gonzaga, but overall extremely nice, friendly, helpful and willing to share connections and resources.
Of course this isn't accurate, there are students like that, but it's not that common. I think a lot of students are here on scholarships and are gifted in that they are academically and/or extracurricularly and/or athletically excelled at what they do.
dumb white folk who come from villages and have no cue what theyre doing.. 5 year olds in their heads to top it and the professors treat you like youre 2. they feed you everything and make you memorize shit. its not about learning, its about swallowing and spitting it all out. complete bullshit!
One thing that I know is happening at Gonzaqga that I wish I wasn't seeing is that we are expanding too much for this city and for our Gonzaga community. It's starting to get harder to get into classes, find housing, and afford to go here. I heard one comment that Gonzaga is slowly becoming the size of a state school with the price of a private school. The small size of Gonzaga is what I was drawn to at Gonzaga.
Coming into Gonzaga, I was really scared by the fact that I HAD to take religious classes (I come from a public school), but they have actually been really interesting to me. I've learned a lot about different religions and different aspects of faith in general; the selection of classes to take is very diverse. My most favorite classes are my science classes. Our science department is very selective and very rigorous as to who "survives" them. They really prepare you for your future in med-school, vet-school, nursing, dentistry, etc. I think the best part of Gonzaga (out of everything here) is that the teachers, staff, and personel are so involved. They know you by name, they encourage you to come talk to them, they are willing to answer any questions, etc. They realize that most of us are here by ourselves; they become our second family.
The most unique thing was that there were classes available that were online but required reseidency programs that allowed for a connection with other students that may not have been made in the online classroom. The residency classes allowed for some very interesting relationships to build as well as for interaction that was not available in distance learning only programs.
I'm not sure what the most popular ones would be just because we have so many! There's GUSR which works with special needs adults, Gonzaga Outdoors, Man's Best Friend which is a club that works closely with shelters in the area, GSBA which is the very comprehensive student government, and a lot of cultural groups as well. Really, everyone can find something their interested in within all the clubs and groups on campus.
My school is absolutely amazing.
It gets to be pretty cold in Spokane. Also it's far enough from home that I can't go back home except on extended holidays.
The sense of community.
This school is full of kind and caring people who are outgoing and always willing to help others. Anyone who fits into those qualities and loves to learn but also loves being challenged would fit in great to this school.
How difficult it is to learn to study
Gonzaga is best known for our very good basketball team.

I wish there was more diversity at Gonzaga . With more diversity I think people would be a lot more open minded and willing to accept different ideas and cultures. For the most part though everything else at Gonzaga is great!
The kind of person that shouldn't attend Gonzaga is one who is confident and accepting of the current situation and refuses to question the status quo. Someone who is afraid to ask why and to challange the commonly accepted path is someone who shouldn't attend Gonzaga. The community is one of the best characteristics of GU and the people who make up that community are dedicated to learning, to truth, and to ethical and moral living.

The stereotype would be rich white kids, but honestly I know so many people who do not fit this mold. I know so many people who work multiple jobs in order to afford Gonzaga just because they love the school that much. It is true that there is a big caucasian population here, but I know that the administration is working on increasing diversity at the school.
