Campus Housing: The George Fox Slogan is "Be Known" and as much as I wish I could have been known I quickly learned it was just the slogan. George Fox is growing to fast and cannot provide housing, parking, or the small class sizes it promises. It is a sad excuse for the close knit environment it promises.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: We do not have greek life at George Fox as far as I know.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I had been to many George Fox baseball games before even attending the school. The atmosphere is very school spirit centered and supported by families and kids all throughout the community as well.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I live at home but I know from peers that it can be hard finding an apartment near campus because there are not many to choose from and can get pretty costly.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Newberg is a small town and does not have many interesting options. However, it does have many many coffee houses.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: It is very difficult for a commuter to find parking and we pay to not have a parking spot.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: At George Fox University, the party scene is little to non-existent which is what interested me in the first place. It is a religiously affiliated school and the students often times reflect that.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Most juniors and seniors live off campus due to lack of available housing on-campus. It also means that you don't have to have a meal plan or pay way too much for your crappy dorm.

5 College Sophomore

Party Scene: But parties are different here. If you're looking to get wasted, you'll probably go to Linfield or Oregon State.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: If you're looking at Fox, generally you'd be the type of student who does not want a lot of dorm parties and things like that. So, in that case it's great. The older you get, the more lax everyone is about everything. Generally, if you're in a Freshman dorms, people will see whatever is happening, if not, you're probably fine.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are a lot of options considering how small of a town Newberg is, and most of them are reasonably priced and within walking distance. But since you'll probably have to have a full meal plan, it won't matter much anyway.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Fox's academics are challenging depending on major and department. I've found some challenging classes but have mostly had no trouble. That being said, I'm still learning a lot and am making great connections with my teachers.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: It's the best because there is no Greek life! I think most students prefer it that way.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I've never heard of anything particularly dangerous happening other than students driving too quickly on roads they're not even supposed to drive on. I'm sure assault happens, but it is so rare that support systems are hardly advertised (though I'm sure they exist).

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: People have a lot of conflicting views about the atmosphere at Fox. People are incredibly friendly, but a lot of the time anonymous pages on the internet will complain about how fake the friendliness seems and many seem to have struggles with loneliness. I've managed to find the best friends that I have ever had.

My teachers are invested, and classes can range from a breeze to incredibly challenging. I think I'll make great connections here to set me up for the future. Typical class sizes are between 20-30 students, that being said, I have had a Bible class with 100 and a French class with 5.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Newberg is a small town with a cute and easy to walk downtown area. You can get everything you need in Newberg, but not necessarily everything you want. There are lots of towns within a 30 minute driving distance and Portland is within an hour, but you may feel pretty isolated if you don't have a car. Driving is not the most fun, and generally the people here are inconsiderate or unaware drivers.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: On campus I feel safe and secure a majority of the time. I know that security is there to help and prevent harm. The officers are nice and are willing to help. The majority of the students do their best to help make others feel accepted and safe.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process is alright. I had a difficult time at first with the school accepting one of the scholarships I received. The payment did not go through and so the school said I owed more than I was expecting to. It was straightened out, but took a few weeks.

3 College Freshman

Administration: It is sometimes difficult to visit other students, because the RA's do not know you and will make sure you are there for a reason and will ask questions to know what you are doing.

College Senior

Greek Life: There is no "greek life" at George Fox. This university does not operate in such a manner (or any manner so specific).

2 College Senior

Scholarships: George Fox costs quite a bit and the scholarships provided are minimal.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: Fairly remote town, genuine people, and serious security.

3 College Senior

Administration: Alcohol and drug use is strictly prohibited, but every student knows that coming in, and if you want to drink or do drugs, you're at the wrong place.
