Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

If you want to continue with a graduate degree and don't know where to go, Gonzaga University is a great place. The staff and faculty are outstanding plus the Organizational Leadership ORGL program is a top notch program not just for the Pacific Northwest but throughout the United States. The program was challenging but doable if you have a very busy lifestyle.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2008

A great program with knowledgeable faculty. Don't take classes from visiting professors though--they're generally not fully on board with how the program is run.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2017

Mostly related to difficulties of being a remote student. Excellent opportunities for non-traditional student without the luxury of attending on-site. Workload is heavy, but definitely appropriate. Still deciding about the value. It is a private school, so cost is on the higher end, but being able to live at home and work full time, my only expenses have been tuition, so I am very close to graduating without debt, which is a rarity.

Gonzaga is the best education anyone could hope for. The student life is rich and full of adventure. The faculty is brilliant, attentive, dedicated, and tough. We have an incredible basketball team and they exemplify the school spirit to a T.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

I've been participating in the online Masters In Organizational Leadership for over a year and it has been wonderful. The courses are very well thought out and manageable for full time professionals. I have visited the campus several times and had a great time while there. The staff is supportive and informative. In terms of Grad school costs it is pretty reasonable.

Degree: Philosophy
Graduation Year: 2016

Mine is a smaller program, with less diversity within the graduate student community than would be ideal. The size does not itself pose a direct problem, as it allows us to develop close bonds of friendship; however, the lack of minority representation remains a sore spot. Still, this may be due in part to the overall size of the program, and the number of applicants. If you contrast the rather homogenous graduate student population to the undergraduates and faculty, then the Philosophy program at Gonzaga is diverse and pluralistic in approach of philosophical outlook. Similarly, while the graduate students are ethnically homogenous, we are nonetheless philosophically diverse. Shedding light on this requires merely looking to my entering class: two feminists (married, one is a pragmatist and the other an anarchist), a Marxist, a Calvinist, and a quasi-Thomistic/Aristotelian personalist (my philosophical outlook). Returning students also include feminists, pragmatists, and Thomists, with a smattering of others, including a comparative philosopher (primarily Buddhism). Philosophically curious and engaged, our small community is lively, endowing students (as well as faculty and staff) with numerous outlets for philosophical and professional development. In fact, the graduate students host an exclusively graduate student Conference every spring. While moving from the East Coast has had its up and downs, I do not regret choosing to attend Gonzaga University.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros: It is a well-paced program that can be easily achieved in 2.5 years. They have a high "pass" rate for the certification board. The content is valuable to the career path. I feel that they are making me well-prepared for becoming an FNP. Cons: Lack of financial scholarships for an expensive program. Required trips to Spokane 2x term without housing or transport available. Sometimes the video & slide show quality is poor, depending on the class.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2017

The program is extremely expensive and the practicums available aren't always super pertinent to what individuals want to do specifically. However, the professors are so genuine, transparent, and willing to give you all the help in the world. I feel so supported. My nerves are always calmed by the disarming and well-experienced staff. They make me feel like I can achieve anything I put my mind to.
