I am in admissions at Gonzaga because I want to provide students the best experience when looking for their education destination. As an international student, I had infinite questions about college life, but also worried about whether I would fit in on campus or not. I want to help students experience what being a Zag means from the beginning and show them that they can thrive here.
What’s your favorite place on campus?
The view from outside east PACCAR. You can catch the sunrise in the morning going over the Spokane river and the soccer field. During the beginning of fall you get to watch soccer games and you can see how the colors change on the city going from green in summer, red/orange/yellow during fall, and white during winter.
What’s your favorite thing to do in Spokane?
The outdoors are my favorite thing about Spokane. With all four seasons there is always something to do outside. From playing sports in summer, hiking and camping in fall, to snowboarding during winter, you get a variety of opportunities to always be active.
Advice for prospective students:
Ask every question that you have. I know that I had so many questions when applying for college and I didn’t see the need of asking all of them. Now, I can see that the more information you can get the better since you would get a broader view on whether or not you can see yourself on campus.
