Gonzaga University has many student resources and tools, but information about these resources is often spread by word-of-mouth, crowded bulletin boards, or overpacked notification emails. Zag Life, the GU student iOS app, streamlines university communication and student tools. The three main tools implemented in Zag Life are an interactive campus map, a Who’s Who directory of Gonzaga, and an event notification system. The campus map includes location services, clickable buildings, event and parking locations, among others features. The Who’s Who tab incorporates all students, faculty, and staff through a secure sign in, as well as the ability to call, email, and add a person to contacts. The events tab contains Gonzaga’s Zagtivities and event notifications.
