Gonzaga was an easy college decision for me. I have 3 siblings currently attending the University . My twin brothers will both graduate this year . My brothers, Matthew and Sean are accounting majors. Both brothers have had successful accounting internships with possible jobs after graduation. My sister is majoring in business with a marketing minor. Rebekah, my sister has been very successful in her studies. My siblings have made many new friends and enjoy campus life!

Living on campus at Gonzaga University is awesome! Most all students are respectful of and kind to one another, and the community is warm and welcoming. Living in the dorms is a unique experience, and having a roommate for the first time has been wonderful. I have grown very close with my new friends, because through living together, it is very easy to establish strong bonds with others, and Gonzaga's housing does a great job of pairing roommates with similar interests and qualities. I have really enjoyed my time living on campus, and I look forward to the coming years as well!

Gonzaga has a pretty decent night life.The school does its best to deter underage students from drinking and participating in illicit activity in general. They have events like Crosby After Dark which hosts activities that students can do on weekends as an alternative to house parties and activities such as that. Gonzaga also has other weekend events that are fun to attend especially in the fall and winter like going to Scarywood, the Haunted corn maze, and Ice Skating where transportation is provided. If someone really wanted to experience the party night life, it's decent if you know where to go. In all honesty, the &quot;ISU (International Student Union) house&quot; hosts the best parties I've been to. Otherwise, get together with your friends and make your own party! There are bars right off campus if you're 21+ and some clubs but I wouldn't really recommend those.
