First year Experience Programs (FYEP) enlists the helps of over 200 student leaders to assist in the process of welcoming all New Zags to Gonzaga University. They each play a vital role by communicating a variety of topics including academics, student involvement, community involvement, and much more. 

Our student positions include the following:

  • GUide Core
  • New Student Orientation Leaders
  • Academic Convocation Student Speaker
  • Zag Link Mentors
  • Peer Educators
  • Office Assistants

GUide Core and Office Assistants are paid positions, Peer Educators typically receive academic credit, and all other positions are volunteer based.
