Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 2015

It is a challenging course, but the professors tend to understand the demands of daily living.

I didn't feel qualified to rate the school on certain aspects as I attend online. I tried to give no rating in these cases.

Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2015

Perhaps because it is an online program with only one, three-day residency requirement over the course of the 2-year program, it's very difficult to feel "involved" in the Gonzaga experience. There is a Graduate Student Association and events specifically held for grad students, but if one attends the online program from half the continent away, these are of no benefit. In terms of course content for the Org Leadership program, all of the content can be immediately applicable to real-world situations as well as banked for future reference. However, instructors can be difficult to contact for clarification or direction. Financial aid- beyond student loans- is nil for online students. Advisors are fantastic through the application and acceptance process- and then fall off the face of the earth; once enrollment has been completed and the student is handed off to a faculty advisor, the student is left to flail through the scheduling alone. I've never once heard from my faculty advisor about my course schedule, my grades, or even to ask who I am and what I hope to gain from the program. Again, this might be a downfall of choosing an online program over a traditional on-campus program.

Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2015

Pros: Some amazing professors. All professors are accessible and glad to meet one on one. Career center works with students from year one to ensure students have every opportunity to pursue their dream employment. Cons: School is not as diverse as it could be. The student body is small, which can be a pro and a con. The school is expensive, but there are many scholarship and financial aid opportunities. The Spokane area has plenty of indoor and outdoor activities, but it is not for everyone.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2017

I'm in my first semester of an online program - so far the professor has been easy to contact. I do not live in Spokane so I cannot effectively rate the safety, housing, etc.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015

Overall, the COML program at Gonzaga University is great. They offer students the ability to study abroad and to bring that experience back into the classroom. All online students are required to come to Spokane for three days for class. That opportunity to connect with fellow online students is one of the reasons why I chose Gonzaga. The faulty are there to support you and whatever your final endeavor may be. I have loved my first semester at Gonzaga and look forward to the upcoming semesters.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2014

I am very proud to have been accepted to a school that is so well respected. This attribute made Gonzaga my first choice in graduate programs in nursing. I feel the faculty takes a personal interest in my success; the online format an curriculum has made that success possible.

Degree: Organizational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2016

The online program is exceptionally convenient for distance learning students like myself. It does seem at times like there is very little "teaching" going on, and more student discussion. This is fine if the professor interjects and offers feedback regularly. Without instructor input, it feels like I paid 2.5 grand to have someone read my papers.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2015

The program is an online program, so some of your categories are not applicable. Gonzaga is an outstanding educational institution and I am very proud to have been accepted as a student. The instructors are practicing nurse practitioners, the virtual campus department is invaluable and I have, to date, had a very good learning experience.

The most difficult part about doing this program online is trying to coordinate sites for practicum and clinic work.
