"I was given a hand-carved wooden statue bulldog by my Grandpa when I was eight that said 'Future Zag.' My sister, who is 9 years older than me, had just chosen Gonzaga and received a wooden bulldog herself. I barely knew what college was, but Gonzaga was the only one I was exposed to when I was young. I thought every campus was like the one that I visited with my sister when she was leaving. When I was going on college tours in high school, none of them made me feel at home like GU did. So I decided to do what my Grandpa had expected and went from 'Future Zag' to actual Zag."
