BE INSPIRED


What seizes your imagination will affect everything! It will decide what will get you out of bed in the mornings, what you do with your evenings, how you spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude. Fr. Pedro Arrupe, S.J. Former Superior General of the Society of Jesus

More than merely engaging minds, what we do at Gonzaga University engages the whole person. Our mission asserts that education should never be confined strictly to the classroom. The Gonzaga Community is committed to the Jesuit ideals of developing your total self – intellectually, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. What inspires you? What energizes you? What amazes you?

At Gonzaga, we encourage you to share your inspirations, grow in ways you have never imagined, and reach the pinnacle of your dreams. Gonzaga will inspire you, enabling you to reach out and inspire others.
