Gonzaga is amazing! It truly is a community where everyone is willing to help one another out, no matter the circumstance. It's almost unusual how nice and pleasant the environment is--there is not a time where someone does not hold a door open for you (and then you have to do that light jog because you are actually a lot further from the door than anticipated). The Spokane area is not the best, most activities are done on campus; Spokane is honestly a little crusty. If you're used to culture or seeing people of color in your community back home, Spokane will be a culture shock.

Gonzaga has such a welcoming atmosphere. From the moment I stepped on campus, I felt right at home. The students here are very kind, fun-loving, and dedicated to their work. The faculty genuinely cares about our success. I cannot imagine going anywhere other than Gonzaga because my experience here has gone beyond my expectations!
Gonzaga University provides a great community for anyone to grow. Most of the classes have 30 or less students, which allows you to connect with your professors and your other classmates. The basketball games are fun and full of energy and even people who do not like sports will have a good time. The only problem with Gonzaga University is the lack of diversity on the campus. If you are a person of color you might find yourself feeling isolated, however the Unity Multicultural Education Center is working to provide spaces where students of color can feel comfortable. Student activism is also a huge factor in the changes being made on campus for social justice. Overall I love Gonzaga University so much because it is possible for everyone to find their space or community where they feel they belong.
