    Zags spend the summer biking through Delft

    Last May, twelve students part of Gonzaga’s civil engineering and environmental studies program packed their bags and said “Hallo!” to the Netherlands. There, they spent three weeks participating in the first ever, “Gonzaga in Delft: Sustainable Cities” course. 

    Students got the opportunity to see the Holland’s sustainability efforts first-hand, compare them to Spokane’s own practices, and examine the area’s sustainable urban planning, all while exploring the beautiful region.

    Gonzaga students spent most of their time biking through Delft, where alternative and mass transportation options are actively encouraged. The Zags also hopped on a train to Utretch, where they were taken on a bike tour that included a visit to the Merwede Canal Project, and Rotterdam, a city that is making big strides and leading the way for sustainable city design.

    PacTrans was able to help out by financially supporting the students for their trip.
