Alumni weekend 2021

Gonzaga Law Alumni Weekend

Gonzaga Law Alumni Weekend 2021 

Health and Safety Update:

As we move forward with hope, we must also acknowledge the growing Delta Variant of the COVID-19 and its current impact on the state of Washington. In response to this rise in cases, new protocols have been released for public and private education in WA. The health and safety of our campus remains the utmost priority, and we will continue to monitor and seek guidance as we move toward alumni weekend. Protocols for safe in-person events are incorporated into your registration. 

Are you missing Spokane? Wanting to relive Heidelberg memories? Looking to reconnect with classmates? Mark your calendar! You’re invited back to campus October 7-10 for a special all-class Gonzaga Law Alumni Weekend.

We’re planning a celebration that you won’t want to miss. Join us for a weekend of socials, a golf outing, a fun run, service projects, and Red Mass all culminating in our Alumni Gala (think Heidelberg) at the Historic Davenport Hotel on Saturday night.

Registration closed on September 30th. We are still able to accommodate registrations for Red Mass, the Welcome Social and the Zag Law Fun Run (no shirt included). Please email Bryn Boorman at for assistance. 


The Davenport properties (Historic, Tower, & Grand) and The Centennial by Davenport Hotels are offering a 15% off discount for our Gonzaga Law Alumni Weekend. Please note that you must use these links to receive the discounts - you cannot call the hotel to receive the same rate.
