MAKING GONZAGA AVAILABLE TO ALL
You asked us to be mindful of how many solicitations we send, and we’re working hard to strike the right balance. You also told us how strongly you feel that every qualified student should be able to afford a Gonzaga education, and experience GU in the ways you did. We agree. As we enter this final year of the Gonzaga Will campaign, please consider helping make that possible for deserving students with your gifts. Go to www.gonzaga.edu/give to help.

Connectedness, communications major themes of alumni survey response
ONCE A ZAG, always a Zag.
Last fall, 2,370 of you responded to a survey about your affiliation with Gonzaga. Here’s what we found:
“A lot of my development, growth and success as a student is because of the mentor-mentee relationship I had with Gonzaga alumni. We should all give back to current students through mentoring.”
– 2010s ALUM
“My Jesuit education at Gonzaga has given me an ethical and logical foundation that underlies my life decisions. The warmth, community and spirituality that I experienced were unlike any other community (I’ve been a part of) since.”
– 1970s ALUM
We learned that our alumni would like to:
“The most important thing to me is that I am a Zag. Always will be. It was four of the best years of my life. I made lifelong friends and feel like I belong to a special and select club – the Zags. There is just something magical.”
– 1980s ALUM
