There is a long tradition between the military and Gonzaga dating back to 1900. The Cadet program of today is vastly different from the program of yesterday. As the times have changed, so have the programs here at Gonzaga. Each era has its own unique characteristics and traditions. But the goal has always remained the same: to produce this country’s best and brightest military leaders.
