The Experience

"The Pre-Orientation Freshman Retreat was the perfect way to begin my time at Gonzaga. I made some great friends and got some wonderful advice from the leaders about Gonzaga before I even started. We spent three days laughing, sometimes crying, square-dancing, throwing a football, playing silly games, going on early morning runs, and singing together, all the while making friendships that I know will be with us forever."

– Erika Beale

"The Freshman Retreat helped me find my footing in the new adventure of college! The experience was also awesome because we got to be vulnerable to complete strangers who then became friends."
