5 College Freshman

Academics: Im comparing this to other majors and I think its the best one. Theres homework but not a lot which will give you a lot of free time. Classes are pretty hard but not impossible.

4 College Freshman

Academics: its hard but worth it.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Im from California and I came here because I wanted to experience something different and out of my comfort zone and I made me realize how much I shouldve appreciated California and how much spokane and not being by the beach sucks. If you're from california PLEASE REALLY THINK ABOUT IT. If you've never experience cold weather before then i highly recommend not coming here. Also, just be aware people aren't as chill as people back at home, theres a completely different vibe and i found myself hating it and not fitting in.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Courses are challenging but you learn a lot. Professors really want you to succeed and are always there for you. Class sizes are pretty small so you really get to know your prof.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Ive just heard a lot of people have gotten internships.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I hate the guys here. A lot of them aren't even here to have fun at parties they just want to hook up with girls. A lot are into popularity and are immature. Not my type at all.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Im personally an athlete and I have come to notice that the school revolves around athletics especially basketball. I mean its not a bad thing but the athletes definitely rule the school.

1 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is terrible. Its all fast food and nasty stuff. I feel like there are absolutely no healthy options anywhere except maybe one place downtown.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They're not very strict unless you're in CM but its not that bad too you just have to be low-key

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: All people want to do is hook up no one is really there to have fun. The parties are pretty boring to be honest and they houses are super gross. Athlete parties are the most fun but non athletes are never invited and have to be friend with an athlete on the team to get into the parties.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: At first the food is pretty decent and the Barc starts off with good food at the beginning of the year but as the year goes on you start to realize you barely have any options to eat on campus and the barc good gets pretty nasty. Its pretty hard to find healthy meals there too.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It all depends on where you stay. The dorms are pretty small for the most part but I could imagine every college living has this.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I have not lived off-campus yet.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a few local spots that I really love. I still haven't found a good Mexican restaurant, though.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The strictness helps me feel safe, but isn't too much. I still have freedom!

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I've been to one party, and it was kind of fun.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got a hefty scholarship, and it has helped a ton and is one of the big reasons I go to Gonzaga!

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I love how the Barc focuses on using local food.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The living learning communities are the number one reason I feel so at home at Gonzaga.

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.

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.
