Such an incredibly inspiring story about our very own senior, Carissa O., who received her own Make-A-Wish back in 2009 and is now helping grant wishes to other cancer fighters while she interns at the Make-A-Wish Foundation this summer!
Carissa Outen wanted to swim with the dolphins. Diagnosed with follicular lymphoma at 16, she endured six months of chemotherapy and desperately needed a break from doctor visits, blood draws and grim news.

Back in September, Gonzaga University and the Career Center sent a group of students to New York City. There they got to experience first hand the New York Stock Exchange, Goldman Sacks, Morgan Stanley, Wells Fargo, and more. These "Treks" offer students valuable first-hand experience that is necessary for starting a successful career post graduation.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Gonzaga social media is going “pink" for the month to show our support to all our friends, family, and loved ones who have been affected by breast cancer. Our prayers are with them.

Gonzaga University, a private Jesuit university in Spokane, WA - Mind, Body, & Spirit
Introduction

Mind, Body, and Spirit

Gonzaga College started in 1881 with $936 in hard silver dollars. It bought Gonzaga’s founder, Father Joseph Cataldo, S.J., 320 acres of land and water, what people then referred to as “the old piece of gravel near the falls.” Six years later, the College officially opened the doors of its only building for “young Scholastics, whose ambition it is to become priests.” Exclusively for boys, the College was under the charge of the Jesuit priests. Enrollment for the 1887-88 academic year was 18 boys and young men.

Today, it is known as Gonzaga University, a private, four-year institution of higher education. More than 105 buildings dot the 131-acre campus overlooking the Spokane River. Students include both women and men, who can enroll in a multitude of undergraduate or graduate programs. Enrollment for the 2009-10 academic year was 7,837 students.

A constant throughout the years is Gonzaga’s educational philosophy, based on the centuries-old Ignatian model of educating the whole person – mind, body and spirit. At Gonzaga, students discover how to integrate science and art, faith and reason, action and contemplation. "Cura personalis," or care for the individual, is our guiding theme.
