WHAT I LIKED

I love Gonzaga University for its atmosphere, size, and attention to detail. I feel like my professors know me well or want to get to know me as a person, rather than just another number in their class. There are also a tremendous amount of resources for health, safety, clubs, sports, and education aid available on campus. The various offices around campus (registrar, counseling, administration, financial aid, etc.) are extremely helpful and accessible to students at pretty much any time. There are places for improvement, as there are with any university and/or establishment, and where I see those areas I see groups of students working to make a difference. Our student body association is incredibly involved with the undergraduate population, and they help us hold our community accountable and improve our areas of deficiency. I would recommend Gonzaga to any student looking to explore their education through a liberal arts lens, with an emphasis on community engagement and care for the whole person (and also anyone who loves basketball of course). Go Zags!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Something to be aware of when coming to Gonzaga is that there is limited access to food if you don't have a car. The majority of the restaurants near campus are either expensive or close relatively early in the evening. The COG, our dining hall, is only open until 8:30 pm on weekdays, so if you're looking for a place that is close to good food access, coming to GU may be a difficult transition.

WHAT I LIKED

The academics are decent, and if you like sports, the basketball team is good. Housing is alright and the campus is pretty.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Gonzaga's representation and advocacy are performative and have no depth. The diversity of staff and faculty is minimal, and more effort is needed when hiring professors of color. They do nothing about harassment and assault, and perpetrators often get away without punishment. The food is disgusting, sometimes even inedible. They do not meet the needs of people with dietary restrictions, sometimes even contaminating foods with allergens. Cleaning services in dorms are sufficient for main bathrooms, but all-gender bathrooms in dorms will go days before being cleaned and restocked with toiletries. The housing situation is also a nightmare. There's not enough housing for everyone, forcing students into poor housing or even off-campus.

WHAT I LIKED

I love Gonzaga because it is an inclusive, well-rounded school. GU cares about its students and strives to make each of us into better people by the time we graduate.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I would have to honestly say that the communication by certain staff at GU could use some improvement, but that is true of almost all colleges and universities.
