Be sure to register and make travel plans early because these events are sure to fill up!

Zagapalooza – All-Out, All-Class Alumni Celebration

All classes invited! We’re taking our Alumni reunion to new heights this year with an exclusive Friday night Kickoff Celebration so big that only the Spokane Convention Center can contain it! This special event will be open to ALL alumni, and their families. This will be the perfect opportunity to socialize and reconnect with alumni from near and far as well as favorite faculty members. There will be entertainment for the entire family, special guest appearances, debut video tributes, giveaway items, birthday cake and spirits. Follow that up on Saturday with Kraziness in the Kennel or some of the other special appearances and events that are planned. And finally, don’t miss a chance to learn about Gonzaga’s past, imagine what’s next and win great prizes with the 125th Anniversary Trivia Hun.

Follow that up on Saturday by taking in a couple of our fascinating 12.5 minute lectures, Kraziness in the Kennel, or some of the other special events that are planned.

Fall Family Weekend

An annual rite of fall and a highlight of the Fall Semester for many students, Fall Family Weekend means the GU campus will be buzzing with children at play, galas, concerts, plays, lectures and the introduction to the men’s basketball team at Kraziness in the Kennel. We encourage all families to come back for this fun weekend. Zagapalooza alumni guests are welcome to all of these great activities as well. Families can “add a kid” so that students whose families can’t attend can participate in events with your family. Upper classmen and exchange students are also welcome to attend any and all Fall Family Weekend activities.

Autumn Gala

Start your Fall Family Weekend at a reception featuring the fruits of autumn in the Pacific Northwest. Revel in great music, fine wine or punch, and choice hors d’oeuvres in the company of GU community members, faculty and administrators. All family members welcome. (Dress is casual.)

Visit the Fall Family Weekend web page for event details and information.

125th Anniversary Trivia Hunt

Whether you're on campus for Zagapalooza reunion or Fall Family Weekend, play the “Zagport” trivia hunt. It's a great way to visit many parts of the university and learn some fun facts along the way! Take your game booklet (included in your registration materials) to the listed game sites and times, and receive a passport stamp. Turn in at least six stamps and receive a prize. You’ll also be entered into a drawing for one of several grand prize gift baskets or a Kindle Fire HD. Join the fun and celebrate Gonzaga’s 125th Anniversary!
