Favorite thing about Gonzaga
the people (I know that it sounds generic but everybody I have met at Gonzaga and in Spokane has been really nice and friendly.)
Best Class
Philosophy 201: Philosophy of Human Nature
Favorite Professor
George Eddy Birrer from Jepson School of Business (He’s an accounting professor.  He is a really funny and a smart guy.)
Best thing about Spokane
I have already said the people, but I also like the fact that Spokane offers something during every season.
Why did you choose Gonzaga?
My brother had studied at Gonzaga for four years when I applied.  He told me great things about Gonzaga and Spokane before I applied to Gonzaga.
Advice for incoming students?
Study hard and do your homework! BUT, make sure to spend time meeting new people and developing friendships.  It seems to me that the friendships that we develop in college are just as valuable as the education we get.
Plans after graduation
I just graduated and I am in the process of looking for a job!
