G-days among blessings that have helped me balance life this year


G-days have been the biggest blessing from Gonzaga in 2020. Students have been stressed out of their minds right with online school, which is arguably harder than any other year of in-person school. It has been difficult to stay on my computer at home and be engaged every class because of all the distractions and the loneliness of doing school by myself. Students have needed a break now more than ever, and Gonzaga has given it to them. 

G-days are days where Gonzaga may have an activity or an assembly but without asynchronous school. We have these about once a week, and they have been helpful for so many students. Students can get extra studying done, catch up on classes or even get ahead. Going into a week knowing, I will have a break one of the days was a relief. It made the week seem shorter even if it is only a one day break and can help students become less overwhelmed. These days of break can gave students a chance to catch up on work they missed or they can relax and get ready for the next day of school. 

Online school is tiring, and some schools handled it better than others; Gonzaga did it better than other schools because they understood the difficulties of online learning and gave their students breaks while still maintaining the same academic rigor. 

I am extremely grateful for Gonzaga doing this along with other things they have done to make this tumultuous year feel better. They gave out free lunches and made Gonzaga Fest happen. Gonzaga has done a lot to make this year feel just as special as any other year. I am very proud to be associated with this school, and the care it has for its students is what distinguishes the school from the rest.
