3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: It can be hard to find a house and the Logan neighborhood can be a very dangerous place as you get away from the school.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few Mexican restaurants, asian, Italian, and anything one can want.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The administration does have a tendency to focus on the wrong things, instead of actually issues regarding the school.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are not very many parties and to get in a house you usually have to know someone living there, but when you do get in a party it can be a very fun time with close friends.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid office is very helpful, and there are very nice people working there. They will help find a way to fund college for every student.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The amount of food given at the dining hall is not enough but you can go back as many times as needed. The meal plans are good and there are many different options on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The community that we live in is great! Some dorms are small and the rules are strictly enforced, but the friendships that you will make last a lifetime. Everybody works together.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I haven't gone through the process yet, but my friends seem to love their homes and they haven't complained much about the process.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Chipotle is everyone's favorite, but there are plenty of other places for dining that are within walking distance.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They aren't as strict as one would believe a Jesuit education to be.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: They end a little early sometimes, but the memories that I've made at parties are the best ones of my life. On nights when the basketball team kicks ass, the party scene is enhanced that much more. I wouldn't want to have it any other way! Gonzaga does us well with their parties.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I am beyond blessed to have received the scholarships that I have, and though more would be amazing, I am grateful for what Gonzaga gave to me.

4 College Senior

Party Scene: Fun but be careful! Plenty of on campus options but on by various student clubs and the Residence Hall Association

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Things are expensive so if you don't have a meal plan, it's not worth buying things but the places are very convenient if you need food!

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Best options for social atmosphere freshman year include: C/M, Desmet/Welch, Madonna and Coughlin. Nicest dorms/suites include: Coughlin, Dillon, Goller, Twohy, Kennedy, and Burch.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: As a freshman I have only ever lived on campus, and cannot judge what the off-campus housing is like.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown Spokane has a large variety of options for off campus dining, and while I haven't had the opportunity to eat out too often, there are plenty of places to go that are both local and chain restaurants.

3 College Freshman

Administration: I would say that the strictness at Gonzaga is about average. Although it is a Catholic school it is by no means more strict - there is still plenty of drinking that goes on both on and off campus and in the dorms. Although I myself do not drink or attend parties, it does happen in the dorms, and it really depends on the RA's as to how it gets handled. Gonzaga does have the rule that those of the opposite sex are not allowed to stay past 2:00am.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I have been so fortunate with both my scholarships and my financial aid. While the school is no doubt expensive, Gonzaga also offers more scholarships at larger amounts to help with the costs, and it has been both the scholarships and my financial aid awards that have allowed me to attend Gonzaga.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
