Transfer, Non-Traditional, and Veteran Students

/

Hello future Zags! My name is Brady Essmann and I am the Academics and Special Populations Manager for Orientation Core. My team and I are so incredibly excited to welcome you into our community! We hope to prepare you for academic and student life at Gonzaga as much as possible before you join us in the Fall, so please send us any questions and check the Orientation page frequently to look for new information.

My name is Jaime Hollis and I would personally like to welcome you to Gonzaga University and invite you to attend New Student Orientation (August 30, 2013 - September 2, 2013). I serve as the Coordinator of the Non-Traditional and Veteran Student Program and I’m also a former non-traditional student. You may be wondering, “What is a non-traditional student?”  Non-traditional students are usually over the age of 23 and have gained life experience not typically found in the “traditional” 18 - 22 year old student population. I strongly encourage you to participate in Gonzaga’s New Student Orientation weekend and the Non-Traditional Student Barbecue planned August 24th.  It is a great opportunity to get to know the Gonzaga Community and meet fellow non-traditional students. A list of events for non-traditional and veteran students is available on this page. I work in Non-Traditional and Veteran Student Programs and can be contacted via phone at 509-313-5501 or via email at hollis@gonzaga.edu.



Below is the schedule for the 2013 New Student Orientation.

While you are invited and encouraged to participate in all the Orientation events, there are activities designed specifically for Non-Traditional, Veteran, and Transfer students. This schedule is tentative and subject to change. You will receive a finalized schedule later.
