I'm biased but Gonzaga is a pretty decent school. It's in Spokane, which is half shitty, half actually awesome. Its Eastern Washington, right next to Idaho. Plus campus is tight, there are good people here, and don't know if you like sports at all, but our basketball is ranked 1st in the nation right now.GO ZAGS! Its a small school, like 5000 undergrad, which is awesome but also sucks if you're trying to avoid anyone. Cool thing is you can show up to a random party and know a solid group of homies who are there though.
Skiing within 45 minutes to Mt Spokane, 1:20 to Schweitzer, and then only a few hours to Red or Whitewater. Plus you can drink at 19 in Canada which is always fun.
Confidence is the feeling you have before you fully understand the situation.
