A Zag and parent on Fall Family Weekend. 

Freshman Games 

This two-week long fall semester tournament for freshmen includes indoor soccer, softball, flag football and volleyball with teams made up of your respective dorm/hall mates. This is a fun way to get to know other students living in your dorm while getting your first taste of the thrilling world of intramural sports. You will compete alongside and against other freshmen in a glorious battle to bring home the championship title and a highly coveted intramural championship t-shirt.


In partnership with Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, Zags and community members come together each year to host the annual Zagathon dance marathon. Participants dance the night away and raise money for Sacred Heart Children’s Hospital. In addition to tearing it up on the dance floor, participants get to hear from children and families whose lives have been impacted by the technology and programs funded by Zagathon. 

Cultural Club Dinners

Every Spring, cultural clubs such as the Filipino American Student Union and Hawai'i Pacific Islander Club host their respective club dinners to celebrate their culture with delicious food, entertainment and education. Attending these dinners is a great opportunity to do some learning outside the classroom while having a fun night out with your friends. 

Fall Family Weekend

In October, Zag families are invited to campus for a weekend visit where they can get a glimpse of campus life from performances to Kraziness in the Kennel. Families also have the opportunity to explore the greater Spokane area. It’s a great time to reconnect!

Logan Block Party

The annual Logan Block Party is a great way to get off campus and make connections with your neighbors. There you’ll find games, local vendors, free food and live music. In the past, GU's basketball teams have stopped by to volunteer and play games with the kids. Other campus organizations such as iZag radio and the Center for Community Engagement have also volunteered their time to help put on the event.

In light of COVID-19 and proper social distancing protocols, university leaders and campus organizations are continually evaluating and updating event plans for the 2020-2021 school year. While the decision to cancel, reschedule or modify any of this year’s events has yet to be made, the state of the pandemic will likely mean this year’s events will look a little different than past years. Nevertheless, students, faculty and staff are working tirelessly to provide fun and memorable functions, in whatever form they may take.
