College Freshman

Parking: I don't have a car.

4 College Freshman

Facilities: Crosby is by far one of my favorite place on campus. you can go to Lo-Cro if you need to study. The middle floor is great for socializing and the top floor is a nice quiet place for reading a paper or catching up on sleep in between classes.

College Freshman

Athletics: I have nothing to compare it to.

Local Atmosphere: Its called Spokompton for a reason.

2 College Freshman

Weather: It was snowing in the morning and blue skies and sunny by 4. Add in the fact that the whole entire time there was 20 mph winds.

Facilities: No matter where you are on campus you can find somewhere to hang out with friends or study or just relax and play phone games.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the friends and relationships that I have created on Campus. and as I look around I have noticed that a majority of students have found similar relationships and are genuinely happy on campus. There are some great teachers but be sure to use the site Rate My Professor before you register for classes.

Greek Life: There is no Greek life.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: I am from southern California so the weather is quite different from what I am used to. However, I enjoy the changing fo the seasons and love the snow, but the lack of sun during the winter definitely affects my mood and makes me less likely to leave my room to go to the gym or meet friends.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: I don't have a car, but with the new parking garage it's easy to find a spot on the student levels.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: I think it would be helpful if the school let students know more about the options and costs for living both on and off campus junior and senior years.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The amount of computers available is fine, but the wifi in my dorm is very slow, making it hard to research for homework, etc.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: I have found the award to be inconsistent with previous years, which is expected, but I would like to know more about why and if I can change that.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I do not go out a lot

2 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There is a lot of drinking!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The community of Gonzaga is a group of kind and helpful individuals from the students, to the staff, to the Jesuits. Attending a smaller campus affords me the luxury of getting to know the community on a personal level. Professors know my name and help students on an individual basis.

The kindness of our community is transparent everyday, as someone will always hold a door open, and helping each-other out isn't an act of kindness, but a way of life here

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Most students at Gonzaga are very happy to be here, although few would argue that Gonzaga isn't flawed. Common complaints include that it isn't strong enough academically, classes are too big, it's too Catholic or not Catholic enough, and Spokane is a lousy city for a college student. But most students admit their love for it anyway. Perhaps the primary reason for this is the tightness of the Gonzaga community, and the relaxed and friendly atmosphere that comes with it. One can cope with shortcomings more easily when living in a comfortable and friendly environment. Students' workload fluctuates wildly depending on field of study, but few are completely overwhelmed or obsessed with studying. Another major draw to many Gonzaga students is the school's study abroad program. Almost a quarter of Gonzaga students studies overseas, the majority attending Gonzaga's well-established Florence program.

The biggest challenge facing Gonzaga over the next few years will be the resolution of these various transition-related problems. If Gonzaga truly wants to establish itself as an elite school, growing pains still need to be resolved. It wants to be taken more seriously, but this will mean more profs, more technology, looking for new ways to accommodate students (better food, transportation, campus activities). As with just about any institution, there are plenty of reasons to get frustrated and plenty of ways in which institutional or administrative stupidity alienates those who are victims of it. The future of Gonzaga will be how it adapts after this time of change. They need to turn their attention not to expanding, but enriching.
