4 College Student

Campus Strictness: I think the rule and expectation for students to attend class is something most students would find daunting but in fact it pushes students to do further and attend classes, learn, and use the money towards tuition effectively. Socially I believe it is a great place to know people. Although the rules seem to be on the more strict side when it does down to it, they are pretty lenient with rules regarding social activities.

Campus Strictness: Everyone is super accepting and you can get multiple write ups before getting in trouble.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: Living on campus in certain dorms allows for noise. Quite hours generally begin at 11 pm and 2 am on the weekends. Don't get caught drinking but it's not hard to get away with it.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Depends on the RA you have and how old you are.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Drinking on campus is is a big no-no. If you get written up multiple times you can be denied the opportunity to participate in school activities such as study abroad and get kicked out of on campus housing.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Campus Security and RAs are generally a decent and benevolent lot. They're almost always affable, helping students who have been locked out of their dorms or that need a ride back to campus. Some students feel that Campus Security is sometimes incompetent in emergency situations, but they do try to help first and ask later (in alcohol-related injuries). The Spokane police patrol the periphery of the campus regularly, but do not interfere with students much. As long as you don't get way out of hand, the powers that be tend to leave you alone.

Campus Security questions suspect behavior, and students holding keg cups or open containers on campus are probably going to get written up. In the past few years, the school has increased the fines and consequences—you can expect a $100 fine and a mandatory alcohol-awareness class. RAs run the gamut from careless to puritanical; Gonzaga and Spokane police will turn a blind eye to partying, then suddenly fine a house $2,500 for serving minors. Gonzaga preaches strictness, then practices it at random. Finally, be circumspect in downloading copyrighted material. Gonzaga will not punish you, but several times the feds have intervened in the student network and pursued individual students.
