Gonzaga Honors Portfolio

We know you are more than your test scores and GPA – we want to get to know you! Please submit a video or other electronic portfolio that serves as an introduction to what makes you special: your talents, passions, and achievements. We encourage you to think outside the box as you make your portfolio. We are looking for evidence of curiosity, creativity, commitment, resilience. We are excited to see your talent, read your writing, watch your robots, envision your business plan, accompany you in your service, or whatever you would like to share. Please limit videos to five minutes.
