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!

The students at Gonzaga are outstanding in the classroom and outside of the classroom. I've never had a day where a student has not asked me how I am doing or if I wanted to join them for a meal. The professors are beyond caring and want us to succeed. It is incredible how many students graduate with a job already lined up and that is so motivating.
