What is your overall opinion of this school?

The campus is beautiful, professors are great and so are the other students. It's a very welcoming environment. The campus is somewhat small so be prepared to "Be Known" by your professors and your peers. The class sizes are fairly good, they get even smaller once you get down into your major classes. I would highly recommend students looking to major in STEM, Biblical Studies/Christian Ministries, Cinema, Band or Art. Very impressed with how they run this place.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Fox University is a great place to earn the education you need to pursue the career you want. Although GFU is a private liberal arts institution that has good education programs and a small school size of only 3,000 students, the school could cost a lot less than $35,000/year. I mean come on.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I feel like I definitely fit in at Fox. It is a tight-knit community that encourages its students to get involved. They do a great job at maintaining the "Be Known" promise of personally seeking out relationship with every single student. Honestly, George Fox was second on my list of possible universities to go to, but now that I am here, I feel like there is absolutely nowhere else that I would want to be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I came to George Fox a little homesick and scared of the new experience away from home. But once I came on campus, I felt so welcomed and excited to be on campus. I knew my professors and they knew me as well. I am able to ask questions and feel like I belong. I met with club officers and admissions/financial counselors with questions and they made me feel like I can stop by their office and/or club anytime. Hawaii Club on campus made me feel as if I was at a home away from home. To this day I have embraced the role as club secretary and have followed the school's motto, "Be known." I have felt that I have and am known at George Fox and it is my second home away from home. I feel that I am home and I have become known not only to my professors who know me but to my peers and friends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Fox University I an incredible place to learn, grow, and Be Known. My average class size is below 30 and all of my professors are eager to get to know me. If I am unable to make it in to see a professor during his/her office hours they will always make other arrangements to see me. In the engineering department they know who has been in to see them and who hasn't because they hope that all will come in and ask questions, for help, or just to talk. I love George Fox an would recommend at least giving it a look.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's an amazing school that allows students to focus on their goals and they help you achieve them. The professors are always available to speak to weather it be by phone, email, Skype or in person. The culture of the university is one of friendship and community building, you feel like everyone has your back and is supporting you one hundred percent.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Fox has been an amazing place to learn and grow. For me it has greatly helped in developing and strengthening skills within my desired career of film and deepening my passion for the field of animated cinema creations. GFU is an amazing university where you will find instructors who go the extra mile. They encourage, help and make learning a fun activity. The staff live by their belief and through their example seek out ways to help guide others in developing a relationship with God.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Fox University is an amazing school. With a small, tight-knit community, I definitely feel at home here, and feel as though I have formed my own college "family". The academics are excellent as well – I have learned so much within my own major, as well as about my peers and myself, how I learn best, how to deal with obstacles and issues, et cetera. George Fox is an amazing school, and I feel truly blessed to be able to attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Fox University is a money hungry institution. I was never treated as a student but as a number there. They tie religion in with their own personal agendas which offends me greatly. They will fine you for the smallest infractions. I couldn't attend the mandated chapel events due to being in the hospital and they would not excuse it. There is a large segment of the community that are underground druggies and drinkers. Some majors are provided with good, high end equipment while others only receive the bare minimum. I graduated from here and would never recommend a student to attend George Fox. There are much better institutions that are lower in price.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are three things that I would advise my high school self to be aware of during college and when making the transition into life afterwards. Here is what I would tell my younger self. First, race and gender will challenge you. Since birth you have faced the sad reality that is true for a majority of your people. Black women are stereotypically viewed as ignorant, adolescent mothers, raised in absent father homes. You are seen as incapable of utilizing proper English, and are looked down upon when you excel in the “white man's’” world. College will be no different. In every classroom you will be one of a few if not the only one of your kind. The exterior will cause confusion among students and staff who will see you in one way and look at you in shock when you tell them of your dual degree in Studio Art and Global Business. Questions will be raised from the texture of your hair or the use of Ebonics, but don’t become frustrated or lose heart. A bond, as strong as a sisterhood, will be formed among a group of women who look just like you and it will last for a lifetime. Second, learn to take risks. Life will turn upside down with decisions that you will have to make about people, desires, and interests. Always remember that you are more than any label people assign you, and if you have the opportunity to explore the world, impact lives, form new relationships or discover a new part of yourself, do it. Don’t allow yourself to be stuck inside of a box, because there is more depth to you than you currently know. Take risks in relationships, always having the understanding that some will die and others will carry on. Dive deeply with people, and never allow your fear of vulnerability or pain to hinder you. Lastly, remember that everyone’s journey is different. As you near the end of your college career you will see three paths that students choose to take. The choices are marriage, graduate school, or a career. Some choose one option, others all three. Remember that you have a life journey that will never look the same as anyone else’s. If each of us wasted our energy focusing on the direction everyone else is headed we would miss out on our very own adventure. Celebrate the success of those around you, whatever they may be, and cherish those moments with them. However, recognize that your life is and will be filled with it’s own momentous occasions. As you leave the world of books, exams, papers, and projects embrace all of the changes that come your way and know that in the end everything will be alright.
