Gonzaga University

Spokane, WAwww.gonzaga.edu
Gonzaga University is situated on more than 150 acres along Washington's Spokane River, about half a mile from downtown Spokane. With just over 5,000 undergraduates and a total enrollment of about 7,500, Gonzaga is a mid-sized school where students get a level of academic attention more common to smaller colleges. The school is named after the 16th-century Jesuit Saint Aloysius Gonzaga and follows the Jesuit tradition of educating the whole individual, mind, body, and spirit. Professors emphasize personal relationships with students and are said to be so committed to student success that many take daily attendance and require class participation (students' grades depend on it). The student body is fairly homogeneous, largely religious, and relatively conservative. Gonzaga students can take their pick of dozens of student organizations, among them the ski and snowboard club, the iZAG internet radio station, and a Dungeons and Dragons club. Bulldogs Division I basketball is a major draw for students and alumni alike -- the school recently went to its first Final Four ever.
