How to Zag Workshop Series

Orientation is a Process, Not an Event!

During New Student Orientation, new students are told you do not have to know everything in the first weekend. How to Zag provides extended orientation workshops, sponsored by First Year Experience Programs, throughout the entire first semester on topics you need to know now that you are ready to take the next step on being a Zag.

Zag Link Mentoring Program

Get paired up with an upperclass student mentor!

ZagLink is a program dedicated towards providing mentors for first-year students to be connected on campus, know the resources around them, and provide guidance in the Gonzaga community. We hope to create a program that unites students and brings the Gonzaga community together, following the Gonzaga University Mission statement to develop students holistically, practice leadership, and emphasize community.
