welcome class of 2016! you will make in our tight-knit and involved community. There are many opportunities in academics, through clubs and organizations, athletics, and community service. Your experiences will challenge you and allow you to grow in mind, body, and spirit. At the end of four years, what will be your lasting, positive impact?

your summer read

The theme, “Unite in Tradition” is echoed in your required read, “They Come Back Singing,” written by Father Gary Smith. Fr. Smith is a Jesuit who helped transform communities by encouraging them to find the love of Christ and unite in traditions. He shares his stories of working with refugees in Uganda. Whether he is a guiding member of the community or joining in with the local traditions, he’s a force of positive energy who is willing to unite with others.

Your experience at Orientation will be the beginning of a new chapter as you start your journey as a Zag for life! This is a very special year for Gonzaga as it is the University’s 125th anniversary. Therefore, our theme for this year’s Orientation is “Unite in Tradition.” Orientation Core chose this theme to challenge you to unite with your fellow Zags and transform your future. Gonzaga undoubtedly has a lot of traditions that will make an impression on you and, as fellow Zags, we encourage you to create your own traditions. You are now part of a legacy. Students have come before you and left a part of themselves with Gonzaga, and students who come after you will do the same. This is your chance to transform your future. As Zags for life we are one community and all in this together. It is up to you what traditions you will become part of and what transformations

The Orientation Core team absolutely loved reading this book. We hope you finish the book feeling blessed and appreciative of the life you live and touched by the compassion Fr. Smith demonstrates when working with the refugees on a daily basis. “They Come Back Singing” will make you laugh – and cry – as you read the amazing stories of how communities can truly dig deep down to their roots and find those traditions that unite them. How will you take the themes from this book and live them out in your life? Professors incorporate the required read into class curricula, and we recommend you read the book before you get to campus so you don’t fall behind. Your pursuit to unite with others and transform your future during your time at Gonzaga starts with reading this book. Happy reading! – O-Core

Residence Life Phone: (509) 313-4103 E-mail: housing@gonzaga.edu gonzaga.edu/residence-life Your residence hall is more than a place to study and sleep. It’s a place where you meet, live and interact with fascinating people from interesting places; where you develop friendships; where you listen to music, read books, write papers, and discuss assignments with classmates. It is also where you begin learning to live in community with others. Through this, you will learn deeply about yourself, your

TEXTBOOKS

The Zag Shop is your on campus source for all of your course material needs. To help students and parents stay within budget, the Zag Shop strives to provide affordable course materials options – including new and used, print and digital textbooks for purchase or rent. Our most popular option is RentA-Text, Follett’s textbook rental program. Rent-A-Text saves students, on average, 50 percent or more compared to purchasing new without sacrificing the ability to highlight and take notes within the normal wear and tear associated with coursework. To register for the rental program or to learn more, visit www.rent-a-text.com. We also offer a growing selection of digital textbooks, representing great savings and a much lighter backpack. Our CafeScribe digital textbook platform facilitates smarter learning by allowing students and professors to share notes and insights with one another in line with the text, as well as navigate content in easy, new ways with organizational tools that can be used to suit their individual study needs. CafeScribe even offers a three day “Try Now, Buy Later” free trial for digital textbooks. Try for three days, and buy the book later if you like the digital textbook

Inkling titles include numerous features such as video, interactive assessments, animation, music, slideshows and 3D models. Students can purchase an entire Inkling textbook or choose to “Pick 3” – a cost-saving alternative that allows students to buy just three chapters for a fraction of the price of a full textbook.

How do I know what textbooks I need? The easiest way to find out – after you receive your class schedule in August – is to go to the gonzagau.bkstr.com and follow the “Books” tab. Professors assign textbooks as “optional text” or “required text.” However, it may be smarter to wait to buy your books if there is a possibility you will drop or add a class.

The Mailroom will be open on Saturday, August 25th and Sunday, August 26th for Orientation but is normally closed weekends during the academic year. The Mailroom is also closed on all Gonzaga University holidays. Undergraduate students living on campus MUST have a mailbox (called an “MSC Box”) in order to receive packages and mail. Mail cannot be delivered to residence halls or apartments. There is ABSOLUTLY NO SHARING OF MAILBOXES due to security reasons. Packages may be shipped starting August 1st.

Just bring this slip to the Mailroom to claim your package.

Visit the CPS&S Website or office at Welch Hall to register your bike. Policies, Rules, & Expectations: The Student Handbook contains important information about policies, rules, and expectations. Take some time to look over the Handbook 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.

Gonzaga Student Body Association Location: Upper Crosby Phone: (509) 313-5824 gogsba.com The Gonzaga Student Body Association (GSBA) welcomes all new students. As your student government, GSBA is here to serve you. The GSBA Website, gogsba.com, provides useful links, weekly updates regarding events and news on campus, information about our services, and advice on how to get involved. Clubs and Organizations: One of the best ways to get involved at Gonzaga is by joining one of the many student clubs and organizations on campus. We have over 90 registered clubs and organizations representing a wide variety of interests including academics, arts, awareness, culture, sports, religion, service, recreation, hobbies, politics, and honors societies. Our clubs are studentled and sponsor a variety of events for the Gonzaga community throughout the school year. Joining a club is a great way to continue a life-long passion, meet people with common interests, or learn and do something new and different. Gonzaga Activities Board (GAB): This programming arm of GSBA offers activities such as dances, speakers, concerts, weekend events, film screenings, performing artists, a series of free “Coffeehouse” shows, and discounted tickets to events throughout the community. GAB is also responsible

20

for three week-long events: Fall-Fest, Homecoming, and Spring Bling. GAB has a Street Team of approximately 25 students who help plan, promote, and facilitate events with GAB. The GAB provides a great opportunity to be directly involved with on-campus programming and learn about how GSBA works. Elections: Get involved in a GSBA leadership role! Elections for class officers (Freshman Class President and Vice President) and Freshmen Senators will be held in early fall. Applications for the GAB Street Team are available as well. There are also positions on the GSBA President’s Council who are appointed to various University committees as active voting student representatives. Joining student government is a great way to get connected, meet new people and make a positive difference at our school. Questions about these positions or ways to get involved are welcome! Call the GSBA office or e-mail the Chief of Staff at gsba-chiefofstaff@zagmail.gonzaga.edu. Readership Program: GSBA offers free New York Times and Spokesman Review newspapers to all GU students. Get yours at several campus locations every academic day. Safe Ride: Need a ride to get you home from a compromising situation? Or a safe ride back to campus or your residence? It’s on us! To use this service, have your student ID ready and call Spokane Cab at (509) 568-8000.
