Zag Alumni & Friends Military Service


The Gonzaga University Military Service Community (GU-MSC) exists to unite all members of the Gonzaga community who have served in any branch of the U.S. Armed Forces. It is predominantly comprised of alumni who graduated from the Gonzaga Army ROTC program but is also open to any alumni or friends of Gonzaga University who are currently serving as military professionals, and any veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces. This community is also inclusive of friends and family members who are connected to the veteran members of this group.


The GU-MSC will focus on serving current veteran students and cadets who are enrolled in the GU Army ROTC program, building a strong world-wide, network of veterans, creating mentorship and sponsorship opportunities, assisting with admissions recruiting efforts and growing philanthropic support for current and future Zag students and veterans.
