Academic Information Sessions

Join us for presentations on Gonzaga's excellent academic programs and opportunities. Many students are interested in more than one academic program, particularly those who are still deciding on a major. We wanted to make sure you have the opportunity to learn about more than your intended major. Academic Sessions will be held from 11:25 a.m. - 12:10 p.m. Pacific Time on Preview Days.
