5 College Senior

Academics: I haven't had a problem with anything regarding academics since going to Gonzaga...

4 College Freshman

Academics: Pretty strong academic front by Gonzaga. Sciences are very hard majors and they put all the hard classes at the beginning to weed people out. It's nice that undergrad students don't have to compete with grad students to do research though. You have to take core classes no matter your major (even though some requirements differ slightly between schools) so it helps to do well on AP tests or even do running start. If you come in with credits, you get to register earlier also and actually get the classes you want.
