A big thank you from Gonzaga

Thursday, April 15, 2021

Alumni and Friends,

Wow, what a stretch it has been! We are a Gonzaga community who thrives on being together. We love our hugs, handshakes and high fives while cheering proudly together in the stands or reuniting at events. As our stellar student athletes performed on the national stage throughout March, the class of 2021 completes their final assignments, and the newest Zags commit to Gonzaga, we recognize that we are not experiencing these moments together in the ways we are accustomed to.

And yet, this incredible community STILL continues to show up for one another — in new and big ways.

You were there as we kicked off March with virtual Gonzaga Day celebrating HOPE.  

You gave generously on a Zags Give Day coupled with an Elite Eight game day.

Your attendance of nearly 6,000 at our Final Four and National Championship Zag Madness Virtual Experience exceeded our every expectation! If you missed it, check out the Fan Room conversations about the History of the Kennel Club and the Gonzaga – Nike connection.

As your support continues to pour in for our incredible women's and men’s basketball teams and for all other students working so hard to earn their degrees at GU, we must take a moment to let you know just how appreciative we are. Zags, YOU are truly something special. We can’t thank you enough for supporting this university through thick and thin, in the many ways you do.  


It’s only together that WE ARE GU.
