4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Many people get involved. Sporting events is a great way to bring us together as a community. It brings current and former students together.

4 College Senior

Athletics: The gym is huge! There are two floors, and i love that weight room and fitness/cardio rooms are split. There is enough space for everyone and there is even a pool and a smoothie bar.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Lets make the Final Four next year...

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Most of the school puts their hearts behind the varsity athletics, especially the men's basketball team. Intramural sports are also high encouraged. They're a great place to build new friendships, exercise, and have fun. The weight area is a little small, but there is an assortment of choices.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The school spirit is amazing, you feel right at home in the heart of the zags, everyone really is one big family here. Intramural are huge and definitely one of the best things to jump in on on campus.

Most Popular Sports
Gonzaga men's basketball is the sporting event, period. Not just for Gonzaga, but for all of Spokane. Women's basketball is starting to garner more attention.
Most Overlooked Teams
Both the men's and women's crew teams are very good, but few students pay attention.
School Spirit
Gonzaga is not heavy on school spirit. GU students are fiercely loyal to the basketball team, but Gonzaga lacks any great rivalries. Some brave souls will engage in the body-paint-and-drool-and-scream activities that are the hallmark of diehard college sports fans, but the majority of fans prefers to cheer (and perhaps drink). Many students wear Gonzaga apparel and are reasonably proud of their school. However, very few are given to boasting about Gonzaga or dissing other universities. Gonzaga students recognize the flaws of their University, and are sometimes quite critical of them.
Getting Tickets
Men's basketball is the only ticket that is at all difficult to obtain. Ticket distribution happens on Sunday nights and usually requires an hour or two of waiting in line to guarantee a spot. Thankfully, in spite of high demand, stubs for the big game are still free to students. Women's basketball is starting to gain bigger crowds, but never reaches capacity.
