A foundation for the future
Numerous facts and figures attest to the value of a Gonzaga education: exceptional acceptance rates to prestigious graduate, medical, and law schools; one of the highest CPA exam pass rates in the nation; and job placement in corporations such as Microsoft, Nike, and Amazon.
Additionally, Gonzaga University remains committed to challenging students to integrate their studies and actions into a philosophy of living that promotes a lifetime of learning and serving the common good. An average class size of 22 students allows dedicated faculty to closely mentor students in the classroom, and a supportive community nurtures students to grow in mind, body, and spirit.
The Gonzaga experience
Gonzaga requires first-year and sophomore students to live on campus. Campus life is an exciting blend of maintaining a rigorous academic schedule while fully embracing the vibrant social atmosphere of spending time with close friends. GU offers more than 140 student organizations such as music, theater, cultural clubs, community service, student government, faith-sharing groups and retreats, Division I athletics, and club and intramural sports.
In the heart of the Inland Northwest
With nearly 722,000 residents, the Spokane–Coeur d’Alene area provides numerous internships as well as outlets for cultural and artistic expression. A scenic 15-minute walk along a section of the 37-mile Centennial Trail carries students to vibrant downtown Spokane, which offers a variety of shopping, dining, and entertainment choices. Additionally, students can explore snow-capped mountains, many lakes, and scenic hiking trails all within a 50-mile radius of campus.
Rewarding your achievements
Students are automatically considered for merit-based scholarships when they apply for admission. However, some awards—such as the University’s scholarships for outstanding graduates from Catholic high schools—require separate qualifications and application procedures. Gonzaga is test optional for 2021 applicants and beyond, including for all scholarship, Honors Program, and direct entry Nursing and Engineering applicants.
