Carie WeeksCarie was so taken with her “Gonzaga Experience” that she is now recruits new students to the University through her role as assistant dean in the Office of Admission. “I love helping students through the application processes and helping to bring in the next class of Zags. I am especially passionate about working with students who are the first in their families to attend college.”

As a student, Carie particularly enjoyed studying literature. “Theatre also became my passion. I developed a real love for what a collaborative art theatre is and how learning to see life from others’ perspectives – as those involved in theatre do – is an incredible tool for life in general. Theatre appealed to both my desire to tell a story well and to my sense of empathy with all aspects of the human condition.”

Carie has fond memories of Dr. Tony Wadden, a popular professor who taught in the English Department and is now retired. “His passion for teaching and love of literature was simply contagious. I had many wonderful ‘Ah-ha!’ moments in his classes. He also wrote the most beautiful poem about my Victorian Lit class and recited it for us on our last day of class together.”

“After graduating, Carie joined the Jesuit Volunteer Corps “because I was “compelled by my Jesuit education and desire to be in solidarity with those who are marginalized. I still try to discover ways to use my education and talents to serve.”

Carie says she’s blessed to have received the Alumni Association Scholarship for three years, including her senior year when she was awarded the Leppek Award. “I will always be grateful for opportunities my Gonzaga education has afforded me, not the least of which is a career I love where I am able to help students navigate their own journeys in higher education that lead to fulfillment of their own passions.”
