Did you know every fall semester, the weekend before finals, there is an event called Spa Night where students can enjoy a free massage as well as get some free food and supplies to do crafts? There’s also one week every Spring semester that is dedicated to healthy living where there are interactive events as well as guest speakers on campus. These awesome event is put on by the student wellness club on campus called G-Plus. It’s run through the Center for Cura Personalis and focuses on all aspects of student wellness. Every Thursday this club meets to talk about these aspects in the Cura  Personalis House (1111 Cincinnati). Mental health, alcohol and drug safety, stress and inner beauty are just some of the aspects G-Plus focuses on.

It’s just a social thing where people get together and play smash together, it’s super laid back and casual.

Mock Trial

Thinking about being a lawyer or going to law school? Mock Trial is an amazing way to get your feet in the water! It’s a bit of a time commitment, but is unbelievably worth it! Every year the mock trial team is given a case and the members of the teams have to act as lawyers and witness. Team members prepare a case for both sides (plaintiff/prosecutor or defendant) then go against other mock trial teams in as if they were going to court. The Gonzaga Mock Trial team attends conferences at the local, state and national level. Every year they have sent at least one team to Nationals! If you’re interested in joining, it’s not too late! Just send Molly Miram an email at mmiram@zagmail.gonzaga.edu.
