The TVRAS ambassador program teams up new transfer and veteran students with current transfer or veteran students. When a new student is admitted to GU, an ambassador will reach out to the student, share resources and invite them to a personal lunch. We hope this program gets new students started on the right foot! If you'd like an ambassador email Colleen at Vandenboom@gonzaga.edu .
Welcome New Zags to Gonzaga University!
Gonzaga University hosts a special orientation program for our new transfer, veteran and returning adult students. We recognize that you have special needs and many of you have attended college prior to coming to GU.
The TVRAS Orientation will take place on Friday, August 27th on the Gonzaga University campus. All new students are highly encouraged to attend orientation. There will be a special parent/family orientation for your interested family members.
Transfer Success BlackBoard Course
We have designed a special BlackBoard Course for incoming transfer students. This allows you to learn about tools and resources at your own pace. To find the course, login to BlackBoard and look for "Transfer Success Course."

In an attempt to find ways to honor our student veterans and our allies, we have our own Gonzaga coin, which will be given to student veterans and allies on special occasions. Additionally, our graduating student veterans have the option of wearing a red, white and blue cord at graduation (our office is providing these for free).
TVRAS has been working with colleagues across campus to create resources to educate the campus community about military culture. See our website designed for faculty and staff.
The Veterans Supportive Campus Rating is awarded through the WDVA to campuses that are working to be a supportive environment for our veterans.
Gonzaga received the WDVA designation of "Veteran Supportive Campus" at a ceremony on September 29, 2017.
In 2020 and 2021 we also received the Military Supportive Campus National designation.
Student Veteran Organization Meetings - All SVO meetings are held in the TVRAS office. To connect with the chapter email Alyssa Knight at firstname.lastname@example.org.
