GUide Core has been working all year to plan your experience as a new Zag and to make sure you feel welcomed as a valuable member of our community.

You might be feeling a combination of every emotion under the sun: excited and anxious, eager and scared, happy and sad, or all of the above. We want you to

know that all of these feelings are completely normal and are, no doubt, the same things your future classmates are feeling. As GUide Core, we believe that you are exactly where you belong. We have been where you are – and now, we are here for you. This booklet is meant to answer any questions you might have about coming to Gonzaga and what it means to be a Zag.

campus security & public safety LOCATION: Huetter Mansion

WEB: www.gonzaga.edu/security

PHONE: (509) 313-2222

Campus Public Safety & Security is a service-oriented department that promotes safety, security, education and personal responsibility.

patrol

Campus Security officers provide proactive patrol of the campus and University areas designed to detect and deter crime and facilitate a safe environment for the Gonzaga community. Patrols in and around the residence halls are a priority. Officers respond to a variety of incidents on campus including fire alarms, medical calls and reports of criminal activity. Campus Security officers work in conjunction with Residence Hall staff, University administration and local police to seek compliance with and enforcement of Gonzaga policies, state laws and local ordinances.

security dispatch

A Campus Security Communications Center is staffed by security dispatchers 24/7, 365 days a year. Community members are encouraged to call security at (509) 313-2222 to request assistance or report suspicious persons or circumstances. There are also phones indicated by blue lights around campus that can be used in emergencies. Calls from these phones are answered by the Campus Security Communications Center staff.

8

neighborhood

The risk of crime increases away from campus. Students should take particular note that nearly all of the assaults reported to Security each year take place off-campus between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m. on the weekends. Students are encouraged to avoid walking alone through the neighborhood during late night hours and to utilize Security escorts.

policies, rules & expectations

The Student Code of Conducts contains important information about policies, rules and expectations. Take some time to look over the Code of Conduct and become familiar with the information. The alcohol, drug and weapons policies are particularly important. Avoid bringing items to campus that are prohibited.

stay informed

Preventing crime is a team effort involving all Gonzaga community members. Our goal is to share accurate information in a timely manner with our community regarding crime, crime prevention, and campus security and safety issues. In doing so, our hope is that this education will help each of us to make good decisions regarding our own personal safety and the safety of others.

office of community standards LOCATION: Crosby Center, Upper Level PHONE: (509) 313-4009 E-MAIL: ocs@gonzaga.edu WEB: www.gonzaga.edu/ocs

The Office of Community Standards manages the University’s conduct processes and provides resources, education, and workshops related to Gonzaga’s standards of conduct. University conduct processes are formative and developmental in nature and our team strives to balance individual student needs with the needs of the Gonzaga University community. The office publishes the University’s Student Code of Conduct, which outlines expectations for student conduct, student rights and responsibilities, and includes information about things such as the alcohol policy, drug policy, harassment and discrimination policy, and student conduct processes. Students can view the Student Code of Conduct at www.gonzaga.edu/studentcodeofconduct and are encouraged to stop by the office with any questions about Gonzaga’s policies and expectations.


TRANSPORTATION weekend shuttle

Don’t have a car, and want to go downtown with your friends? Gonzaga Student Body Association (GSBA) provides students a free shuttle service to utilize that operates on the weekends. The shuttle is a great alternative to having and maintaining a car and gets students to the heart of downtown Spokane. The shuttle departs from and returns to Desmet Circle on a consistent schedule.

rides

CPSS officers can provide a security escort and courtesy rides to any area on campus, as well as a portion of the immediate neighborhood adjacent to Gonzaga.

bikes

Students are encouraged to bring an older, inexpensive bike to use around campus. We strongly recommend a high quality U-type lock and strongly discourage cable and chain locks. Some residence halls have bike storage – contact Housing and Residence Life at housing@gonzaga.edu or (509) 313-4103 for more information. Once you are on campus, make sure to register your bike by visiting Campus Security & Public Safety in Welch Hall to register your bike or online www.gonzaga.edu/bicycle-registration

parking & permits

Most first year students choose not to bring a vehicle, as there is not a great need and parking is very limited. First year students who choose to bring a vehicle to campus must purchase a parking permit. Student parking permits are $85 + tax per year and can be purchased online starting Aug. 15. A printed reciept must be provided for pick up at Huetter Mansion. Students may want to consider a Zipcar membership, if they only plan to use a vehicle occasionally (trips to the grocery store, etc.). Visit www.gonzaga. edu/zipcar for more info. 9


housing & residence life Welcome to your home away from home! Living on campus is an essential part of the Gonzaga experience. Housing and Residence Life is dedicated to creating a welcoming, caring community where you’ll make new friends and meet people from around the US and the world. We see it as our calling to help students connect with others on their floors, within their residence halls, and with the larger campus community. There are endless opportunities to engage in the life of the community, and we are here to help you along your journey at Gonzaga University!

E-MAIL: housing@gonzaga.edu

PHONE: (509) 313-4103

WEB: www.gonzaga.edu/housing

residence life staff

One of the first people you will meet is your Resident Assistant (RA). These leaders are students who help foster and ensure a sense of community and safety among hall residents. RAs develop relationships with all residents, coordinate hall events, help when you find yourself in a difficult situation, and encourage you to be involved in the Gonzaga experience.

expectations

Living in community brings with it rights and responsibilities. As such, there are expectations that Gonzaga University has of students in and out of the classroom. Housing and Residence Life expectations have been created to foster a safe, academically conducive, and communally healthy environment. Please take the opportunity to familiarize yourself with Housing and Residence Life policies. We look forward to having your positive contribution to our vibrant on-campus community.

residence halls

ROOM & ROOMMATE ASSIGNMENTS: EARLY TO MID-JULY (you may have received your assignment already): You will receive a tentative building assignment and other important information. This information is emailed to your ZagMail account. EARLY TO MID-AUGUST: You will receive specific information regarding your room assignment, including room number and initial information regarding your assigned roommate Please pay attention to your ZagMail account for important information from the Housing and Residence Life Office.

10

ROOMMATES

When you receive roommate information in August, say “hello.”. We recommend coordinating with them what you will be bringing to the room so you don’t bring duplicate items that are OK to share. Our rooms are not big enough for two microwaves, two refrigerators, and two 50” TVs. The University believes strongly that living in community (including with a roommate) gives students an opportunity to deeply get to know people of differing backgrounds and attitudes. While you may not become best friends with your roommate, being able to learn to live with someone is an important life-skill with benefits beyond college.

STORAGE

There is limited space in your rooms. Bring only the necessities to make packing at the end of the year much easier. Decide, for instance, whether you will really ride your bicycle frequently or only a couple times when the weather is nice. (We have options for free bicycle storage locker use, if you bring a bicycle and do not want to store it in your room.)

LAUNDRY

Free residence hall laundry rooms are available with both washers and dryers. Just bring your own detergent and laundry supplies.

KITCHENS

Some halls have “kitchenettes” that can be used by residents. Cookware is provided for community use, however, serving and beverage ware is not provided.

BUNK & LOFT KITS

Most beds can be bunked. Residence Life staff will have the hardware necessary to bunk your bed, if you wish. If you want to loft your bed so the space under it is empty, loft kits are available on a limited basis. To reserve a loft kit, visit www.gonzaga.edu/loftkits.


housing & residence life faqs

mail services

All incoming students will show a “not complete” application until our office assigns housing in the summer. However, the agreement becomes binding once the terms and conditions have been accepted.

LOCATION: Boone Avenue Retail Center (BARC)

WHY DOES MY APPLICATION SHOW AS NOT COMPLETED?

WHY WON’T SOME OF THE BUBBLES ON THE APPLICATION “COMPLETE”?

Some sections of the housing application remain open so students may make changes through mid-June. It is okay that they are not complete.

WHEN WILL I KNOW MY ROOM AND ROOMMATE?

Tentative building assignments are sent early- to mid-July. Room confirmation and roommate contact info are sent early- to mid-August.

I SUBMITTED MY DEPOSIT EARLY BUT DID NOT GET MY TOP CHOICE. WHY? Priority in the assignment process is based on the date the Housing Application Terms and Conditions are accepted, not the date admissions confirmation or housing deposits are submitted.

I AM AN “EARLY ACTION ADMIT,” BUT DID NOT GET MY TOP CHOICE. WHY? The demand for some living communities and housing styles exceed the supply. While we try to honor your preferences, assignment to a specific building, living-style, or with a preferred roommate is not guaranteed.

WHEN DO I CHECK-IN?

New students are encouraged to check-in on Friday, August 25, 2017 as part of Orientation Weekend. Exact times of move in are available on our Move-in webpage at www.gonzaga.edu/move-in. New students registered for PreOrientation programs will be allowed to arrive early at a time specified by the Housing and Residence Life Office and by each Pre-Orientation Program. Unless you are associated with early orientation programs or members of the orientation staff, please honor the Friday check-in date.

Among the many transitions you face coming to college, one of the most important will be in regards to your academics. College courses have higher expectations and it can be a bit overwhelming at first. Resources such as professors, advisors and the Office of Academic Advising and Assistance (AAA) are ready and eager to help you succeed.

class schedules

Advisors in AAA will be working all summer on your first-semester schedules. As professional advisors, we use our knowledge of Gonzaga’s many degree programs and requirements, together with information you provide through the Academic Interest Survey (www.gonzaga. edu/ais), to compose your first-semester schedule. We also take into consideration AP/ IB credit and courses transferred from other institutions.  Please contact the College Board to send AP/IB scores, and/or the College/University where you have earned college credit to have your transcript sent to Admissions, at your earliest convenience.   Your fall schedule will meet a variety of requirements, from University Core, to major and minor, and for some of you, elective credit.  We guarantee everything you are registered for will count toward graduation, and will set you on the path to completing your degree in four years. This is just one of many ways Gonzaga works for you, ensuring the best possible start to your academic life.  You will find answers to many questions you may have about registration and your classes at www.gonzaga.edu/froshregistration. 12

schedule changes

After you receive your first-semester schedule in August, we anticipate you may have questions or want to make a few changes. For detailed information regarding schedule changes, visit us online at www.gonzaga.edu/froshregistration. Just click on the schedule changes tab to get started.

advising at gonzaga

Grounded in the Jesuit idea of formation, academic advising at Gonzaga is an intentional partnership among students, advisors, and other university professionals to help students develop as reflective, responsible individuals rooted in Jesuit, Catholic and humanistic traditions. Academic advising at Gonzaga emphasizes shared responsibility, in which advisors provide information, perspective and guidance, and students evaluate, discern, and decide. Advisors strive to meet your needs at any given time throughout your Gonzaga career, in course planning, career development, research opportunities, or serving as a mentor. All new students will meet their assigned Academic Advisor for the first time during New Student Orientation.

WEB: www.gonzaga.edu/studentemployment

Working while going to school can assist students in both funding their education and in better organizing and prioritizing the varying demands of college life. Working actually makes students better students, as they are invested in their education in a way they wouldn’t be if they were not working. Their community broadens, they are able to try out different work environments, and become better prepared to demonstrate their skills after graduation. Having a job can be an important part of the Gonzaga experience, as it often enhances what is taught in the classroom. Students develop an appreciation of a job well done while also contributing toward the mission of the university.

think

about IT. At Gonzaga, we strive to develop the whole person by cultivating students with strong skills in reflective and critical thought, lifelong learning and ethical discernment. College is often a time of beginning to navigate on your own while being presented with many opportunities, challenges and new experiences. Because of this, you are required to complete the online course “Think About It” prior to coming to campus. This course prepares you for the unique challenges and responsibilities of college life by examining the issues of drug and alcohol use, healthy relationships and sexual violence. You will receive information about how to access this online program in late July via your Zagmail account, and must complete the program prior to coming to campus by Aug. 24. If you have questions about “Think About It” or need help, please contact the Center for Cura Personalis at ccp@gonzaga.edu or (509) 313-2227.
