Gonzaga University is a wonderful school, on a beautiful campus. Many of the professors are very good, although I suggest checking them out on rate my professor (.com) before registration. Also, they have great meal plans! If you are sporty and active this is a great school. Many students participate in sports and sporting events.
Review Gonzaga University
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!
I love GU more than anything. It is the absolute best decision I've ever made! The academics are tough, but the profs love to get to know their students. I was a 3.5 student in high school and I have to put in the effort here, but I love every second of it. The basketball team is amazing, the community is so welcoming. I never want to leave! GO ZAGS!
