Help Your Magazine Pick the Best!


The Magazine of Golden Gate University’s upcoming issue will feature a “Best of Neighborhood” article that will deliver an inside look on the community’s best picks, whether it’s a restaurant or a public space. We invite our readers to participate in their survey and contribute to the community in picking the best spots in the neighborhood! You can access the survey here.

Published two or three times per year (spring, fall, and sometimes summer), the Magazine of Golden Gate University connects alumni with their university with providing information and updates about the school, fellow alumni and topics of common interest.

News & Updates


Speaking of surveys, we would like to thank all of the participants for taking our hike survey! According to the results, %96 of our participants stated that they are interested in joining us for a hike on a weekend later in this term. %83 of respondents who are interested in joining the hike stated that Saturday would be a better day for the activity. We have also collected some destination suggestions such as Twin Peaks, Glen Canyon Park, Mt. Davidson, and Land’s End.

The next step is for us to determine a date that will not clash with your finals and set the logistics of the activity. We are really excited about putting this together and we will keep you updated!
