Visit Spokane welcomes Gonzaga University families!
October 7-9, 2016
The 2015 Fall Family Weekend was a huge success which welcomed about 1,000 families to campus.
The focus of the Family Fall Weekend event is to welcome the parents, family members, and family friends of the undergraduate students to campus so that they have the opportunity to experience a portion of their student's life at Gonzaga University. To this end, parents are encouraged to attend classes with their student and to participate in a variety of academic, athletic, and social events especially designed to give family members a tantalizing taste of Gonzaga.
Located in the heart of Gonzaga’s campus, the Hemmingson Center brings the community together, blending the core elements of the Gonzaga experience – academics, student development, faith, and global impact – in a facility designed for connectivity. It is the new home of University Ministry, Center for Global Engagement, a variety of student development programs and outdoor programs, as well as student activities and clubs.
