The primary goal of the Bend Chapter is to allow alumni, parents, and friends of Gonzaga to network and further the mission of Gonzaga University in the area through game watches, regional events and service projects. Alumni, family and friends are always welcome at any of our chapter events. We hope to see you at our next event!
