George Fox University

George Fox is a Oregon's nationally recognized Christian university, providing students with personal attention, global opportunities to learn and serve, and a supportive community that encourages academic rigor and spiritual growth. Small class sizes allow for personal attention from faculty who integrate their Christian faith into the curriculum. Funds are provided for independent undergraduate research. A culture of volunteer service is encouraged through an all-campus Serve Day and serve trips during school breaks. Students enjoy the proximity of Portland, the Pacific Ocean, and other attractions of the Pacific Northwest.
