3 College Freshman

Facilities: The educational buildings are great. They are in good shape and clean and updated. The library is a great place to study, but sometimes its hard to find open spots to study. Wifi is also best in the library. The athletic center is fairly decent, but has weird hours and is often filled with athletes, leaving little room or access for regular students.

5 College Freshman

Facilities: I really felt at home and important at Fox. At other schools, I often felt like just another number. But at Fox, they made a point to know me by name.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Just like anywhere there are attractive guys and not so attractive guys. But relationships are a big deal, so often time there are people who you will like more than others.

3 College Freshman

Majors: I have a passion for working with children, and dream of becoming a teacher, so therefore it is worth it to push through the difficulties of the program. The main problem with Elementary Education is the course load. If you declare El Ed, forget taking any sort of fun electives. There is barely enough room to fit in all of your general education courses.

3 College Freshman

Majors: For my program, you don't apply to be admitted to the School of Education until your sophomore year. I have not yet applied, but the most important criteria is probably good grades and passing state tests.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus has been one of the best parts of my experience. My dorm has a very close knit community and that makes all the difference. I live in Coffin Hall, which is on the far side of the canyon, but the walk is so worth it! In my opinion the worst dorm is Edwards. Although it is close to everything, it is old and run down and very cramped.

College Freshman

Majors: I have not had an internship opportunity at George Fox.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The Elementary Education program has just been revised. Unfortunately, it is much different than the original program. The faculty decided it would be best to remove all child psych/development, adolescent psych/development, and other similar courses to make room for 20 or 30 extra "math and science teaching methods" and "cultural studies". I understand that these areas are important too, but as teachers, I feel that the child courses are extremely valuable. Despite these frustrations, the profs in the department are fantastic and genuinely care about each one of their students.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is crazy enough for me when I need it, but private enough so I can have my alone time. If I could do it all over, I would still choose my school because the environment is so positive and uplifting.

College Freshman

Greek Life: There's no Greek distinction among the student body. The housings are better for students with higher credits, but that's about it.

3 College Freshman

Majors: The programs are really hard. The acceptance rate is lower than other surrounding universities. However, the facilities are extremely high quality, and the opportunities are plentiful.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The internship opportunities are opened statewide. The time commitment varied with each jobs, and so do the responsibilities. The pay is totally worth it, varies between $10 to $25 per hour.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great faculty and program structure

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Process needs to be better communicated, but staff are extremely helpful

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: Very diverse / liberal for a Christian school

3 College Sophomore

Majors: Could be more streamlined - improve communication on process.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Great faculty and program options.

College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Online Student living in another state

4 College Sophomore

Academics: I love my major for what it is but I'm still new to it so there's not much I can say about it. The workload is okay for the most part, mostly essays, and the facilities are good. I don't know about the internship or job opportunities yet, but I know they're there.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: It's alright for the most part. I don't eat out often so I don't know too much if there are student discounts and all that. The price is good and while there is some diversity, there isn't as much as I'm used to. I prefer eating home-cooked meals, but the Chinese food is good.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: There are very few cases where I saw drinking and drugs happening on campus, but it isn't explicit. There is little to no peer pressure and the school does a good job of keeping students in check.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: It's pretty strict. I mean, we had to sign a lifestyle agreement first thing, and while a good majority of the students respect it, there are some exception cases. I'm not against alcohol and the like, but I do like how it's a drug-free, alcohol-free school because I feel that would have been disruptive in an academic setting.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: I'm sick of the rain, but the rare sunny days are one of the best.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorm options are okay. The worst option to live in as a freshman would be Hobson as it is a bit estranged from the other dorms and is far from the campus. Social atmosphere is good, but it still requires actually going out and making the effort. Cost isn't the greatest, which is why I'm living off-campus this year. Housing process is largely okay.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no Greek life.
