  • Most of the dorms are party dorms. If you're into that, you'll love them; if not, you'll probably still make friends but you'll be annoyed a lot of the time.…

  • Mar-03-2015 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    Typical choices with a meal plan and swipes like most colleges. I know there is some construction going on that will provide a new dining hall and bar for those over 21.

    Compared to other colleges I have visited Gonzaga dining is superb! The dining facilities are very good at meeting your needs especially if you are intolerant or allergic to anything.

    Food on-campus is ok, it really depends on what you like to eat but there are some pretty good places like Duff's or Subco.

    I enjoyed the BARC's food selection, I thought for college food it was pretty high class food. It really depends on your perspective/pickiness.

    Dinning hall looks good. When I visited the food smelled good and my student guide had only good things to say.

    Our old dining hall was recently torn down and now we have a temporary one until the new building is done. I don't like the food as much as I would like to. We need more options and varieties.

    There are a couple of sorority and fraternity type groups on campus but not too many since it is a jesuit institution. The main frat is called the Knights and the main sorority is called the Seatons. There are some more, some of which are coed and work towards different goals.

    There isn't any but it is replaced by RA's planning activities for their floors and dorm blocks throwing events, that is more inclusive then Greek life.
