Haven’t been able to visit Gonzaga University yet? Our Office of Admission offers many great visit options for our prospective students and their families. We offer both in-person and virtual visit options, so there are lots of ways to see campus and get to know GU better.
Throughout the spring, we offer Daily Visits twice a day on most weekdays. Our morning option takes place between 9:00 AM and 12:00 PM and our afternoon option takes place between 1:30 PM and 4:30 PM. Included in your visit would be an information session led by an admission counselor, a campus tour led by a student ambassador, and an optional meeting with an admission counselor (which also serves as an informal admission interview for prospective students). Please note, though, that meetings with admission counselors are only available to high school juniors, high school seniors, and interested transfer students.
During our Daily Visits, we also offer class visits and faculty meetings. These options can be added to your itinerary for your Daily Visit. However, please note that class visits and faculty meetings require at least two weeks' notice to give our faculty members plenty of notice before meeting a prospective student. Faculty interaction is limited to transfer students and high school juniors and seniors only.
On select Saturdays throughout the spring, we offer a Saturday Visit option. These visits begin at 11:30 AM and conclude at 1:30 PM. Included is an information session led by an admission counselor and a campus tour led by one of our student ambassadors.
Preview Days will be offered on Friday, March 8th, Monday, March 25th, Friday, April 5th, and Friday, April 26th. Preview Days are our most comprehensive in-person visit option, besides our admitted student day, GEL. Included are breakfast and opening remarks, campus tours led by student ambassadors and admission counselors, a student panel for prospective students, a financial aid information session for parents and guests, a lunch, academic information sessions, and optional admission interviews. The events begin at 9:30 AM and conclude at 2:00 PM, with the optional admission interviews following.
Nursing Fridays will be offered twice this spring on Friday, March 1st and Friday, April 19th. Nursing Fridays provide prospective Nursing students the opportunity to learn more about our Nursing program, explore the facilities and labs, and interact with faculty.
