Bay Area

The Bay Area Alumni Chapter covers the greater Bay Area — Silicon Valley, San Francisco and beyond. The primary goal of the Bay Area chapter is to allow alumni, parents, and friends of Gonzaga to connect and further the mission of Gonzaga University through game watches, networking and social events. Please join us if you’re in the area or just passing through. Go Zags!
