Seniors Return to Campus for Gonzaga's First G Day
On Friday, August 28, Gonzaga held its first "G Day" -- when smaller groups of students have the chance to come down to Eye Street for various activities and co-curricular opportunities.
On this first G Day, members of the senior class were invited to commemorate and learn more about the 1963 March on Washington. Students came down to campus in waves of 40 at a time, and then were separated into smaller socially-distant groups for discussions and a march on Buchanan Field.
"It was so wonderful to see students back on campus," says Mr. Devon Leary, Gonzaga's Director of Diversity and an organizer of the event. "As a Jesuit school, we are always looking for opportunities to practice and reflect upon our Ignatian commitment to a faith that is centered around justice and equality. Learning about, discussing, and commemorating the 1963 March on Washington was an important and timely way to live up to that commitment."
