About Pre-Orientation Programs


Bond with fellow new students prior to arriving to campus!

Gonzaga University offers five optional, fee-based Pre-Orientation Programs that take place before New Student Orientation Weekend. Each Pre-Orientation Program focuses on a different aspect of the Zag student experience: holistic education, social justice, promoting diversity, spiritual growth and opening yourself to new adventures. This is a great opportunity to explore the Gonzaga community, make friends, move in early and develop your mind, body, and spirit.


Registration for all five programs is on a first-come, first served basis. Students may only participate in one program.
