I'm not sure I would have applied to law school without my background in Psychology. I cherish the Jesuit education that I received at Gonzaga and I truly believe that it's what makes the school so special.

My education at Gonzaga has had a massive impact on who I am today and on what I believe that I can achieve. All of my psychology professors at GU made sure that they not only knew me as a student, but also as a person.

I was uncertain about which degree I wanted to pursue. Then I took Psychology 101 with Dr. Bartlett. That’s when I decided to major in psychology.
