Don't Forget to bring your personal Artifact to New Student Orientation
Community is very important to Gonzaga. In fact, you’ll probably hear this word several times a day when you come to campus in August for New Student Orientation. As a way to kick us off, your Orientation Leader will facilitate several community builders with you and your assigned small group. One of these activities is called My Personal Artifact.
We’re asking you to think of an item that is special to you and that has significance to who you are today. This item probably involves a personal story and may bring up happy or sad memories. Perhaps it’s a photo of a loved one, a childhood toy, or a trophy you won. It can be whatever you want as long as it’s significant to you and says something about who you are. As you pack for college this fall, be sure to bring this special item as you will need it for New Student Orientation.
With a group of your fellow peers, we will ask you to share the following:
- What the item is
- How or when you received it, made it, bought it, etc.
- Why the item is special to you, and
- How the item represents you
We look forward to welcoming you into the Zag community and learning a little more about you through your personal artifact!
