What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Fox is a really good school. The academics and professors are excellent and the small class size allows great relationships to be built with the students. The only thing I would complain about is that not all of classes were transferable so I had to repeat some courses.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's very nice the community is great here! The professors are unlike any that you would get at a regular university. Although it is expensive and not much diversity is here, definitely micro-racism takes places. But if you love the Lord, Fox is the place for you there are many opportunities for scholarships and grants. I love my experience so far with Fox.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really love the school. Like anywhere, there are issues. Buildings could be remodeled, donors are funding really random and seemingly insignificant things, and they could take better care of their faculty and staff, but, the education is great. The people I have met and the opportunities I have to do what I love are abounding. It has been an incredible opportunity for me and I am very happy to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Fox University is an excellent school that continues to earn my highest approval. The school itself is a beautiful, rustic campus set in the small community of Newberg, Oregon. As opposed to the clean cut perfection of many ivy league schools, George Fox is surrounded by masses of beautiful trees and other natural foliage. Boulders, large tree trunks, and ferns can be found scattered across the campus. This kind of beauty is a perfect reflection of the natural aesthetic that embodies Oregon as a whole. The professors are nothing less than top notch. All of the ones I have encountered have been incredibly encouraging, reasonable, respectful, diligent, and highly qualified. My favorite professor, Dr. Schmitt, is absolutely exceptional. He makes us, his students, feel genuinely known and appreciated. Schmitt also has the tendency to enlighten us and brighten our days with his well thought out, clever biology puns or “Dad Jokes”. There are however some professors who are less than preferred. That can be expected at any university even at one as high quality as George Fox. I have yet to encounter any of said professors during my experience as an undergraduate student. Meal plans at George Fox include 20 meals per week for incoming freshmen at the college cafeteria known as “The Bon”. The cafeteria is catered by Bon Appetit, which to my knowledge trumps other catering services at other schools similar to George Fox such as Pacific and Corban. Both of which are catered by Aramark in which the reviews have been nothing but negative coming from the perspectives of students whom I'm acquainted with attending these universities. On a normal basis, the food at the The Bon is rather average. Often the meat is prepared too dry or too tough. The choices can be often fairly limited, so the food selection can quickly become monotone and bland. This was a concept I had already expected coming into college. Due to the fact that Bon Appetit is catering to hundreds of college students, it is difficult to create a larger selection of food choices. There are many options available to those with food allergies such as myself. I’ve had a gluten allergen for over a year now and I have found The Bon to be very accommodating to my allergy. There is always room for improvement in this department though. Often times it can still be very limiting to those with food allergies to feel as if their choices are as varied as those without allergies. Most of the students I know with food allergies also feel similarly about the alternative food options. The dorms are a fantastic way to become friends with other people on campus. They provide exposure to a lot of other students and allow us to bond with one another in a way that would otherwise be nonexistent. I have enjoyed my experience living in the first floor girls side of Pennington. My dorm consists of both a boy side and a girl side with an upstairs and downstairs hall for each gender. The lobby features a welcoming fireplace, many comfortable chairs and couches, a ping pong table, and a pool table. A kitchen and laundry room are also included in the dorm with twenty four hour access. My RA is a fantastic leader who is always thinking of her residents. She has always been there when I needed her and has provided a plethora of opportunities for us to bond together. Many of the other dorms operate in a similar fashion with boys and girls sides and multiple floors for the residents to live in. When applying for housing, students fill out a living preference sheet in which they describe their living habits and personal living preferences, so that they may be paired with a roommate with similar preferences. That is how I was paired with my fantastic roommate whom I very much enjoy living with. There are many popular study niches found on campus as well as off campus within walking distance. I will list the ones I often frequent. There is a very unique study room on the third story of the EHS (science building) called the Fishbowl. It features couches, a white board and plenty of study space. The room is rectangular with the two larger adjacent walls being completely made of glass. Another great spot is the library, featuring several quiet study spaces, a large twenty four hour access study section, large mobile whiteboards, a coffee machine, water fountains, and private, rentable study rooms for student use. There are two cafe areas in which many GFU students like to frequent due to the relaxed ambiance they provide. Off campus there are three local coffee shops many students enjoy frequenting. Coffee Cottage, Coffee Cat, and Chapters are all delicious, quiet places to spend time studying at. My favorite of these is Coffee Cottage because I prefer their drinks as well as the inviting atmosphere. There are more other study spots available depending on what the students’ major is and where they prefer to spend time at. My overall opinion of the school I am attending, George Fox University, is exactly as I expected it to be after visiting the campus a few times, fantastic. I have never felt more at home, had more genuine friends, and been so excited to attend my classes. Not to mention I am able to freely express my faith as a Christian, my honest opinions, and share personal stories. I always feel safe and secure on my campus and know that if I did not feel this way, there are many staff members on campus whom I can talk to and express my concerns to. I could not imagine spending my time studying at any other university and I am so blessed to be at such an amazing school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think George Fox University is a lovely campus. The whole campus is full of vivid and eye-capturing colors in the fall and the area surrounding it is truly beautiful. I think with the weather and atmosphere of the whole place, George Fox is placed in a great area. The people there are ready to help and overall very friendly. Here, students are able to pursue their degree with people who have the same characteristics and interests and are willing to center their lives on Christ; for the sake of a better tomorrow.

It was a very nice campus and place to visit. Professors are willing to stop and answer any questions or help students outside office hours. I observed students walking past each other will nod and smile. the campus is overall friendly and is appealing to the eyes. I would recommend the school to anyone.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

You get to meet many really well rounded people. It's an easy place to find good people to surround yourself with. The food isn't horrible like some people say. I love that the classes are small and you get to meet your professors and really dive into a subject if you are into it. Overall it's a good place to learn and focus on your studies, while meeting really wonderful individuals.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Fox University is a safe and beautiful environment to learn at. The teachers are reliable and easy to talk to, the facilities are wonderful as is the surrounding area, and the lack of quality in the dining facilities is made up for by the school's convenient location. This school fosters a joyous spirit of academia and friendship, and I am glad to be a student here.
