Gonzaga University is located in Spokane, Washington, along the Spokane River. It was established in 1887, and was named after a young 16th-century Italian Jesuit, Aloysius Gonzaga, who died in Rome trying to save young people from the plague. He was later named the patron saint of youth.

Gonzaga University is a private, four-year comprehensive university. Its educational philosophy is based on the 450-year Ignatian model that aims to educate the entire person. That includes the mind, body, and spirit, an integration of science and art, faith and reason, action and contemplation.

Gonzaga University offers 92 fields in five undergraduate schools: Arts and Sciences, Business, Education, Engineering, and Professional Studies.

A variety of academic, athletic, cultural, political, musical, religious, and service-oriented extracurricular opportunities await new students.
