    Newberg isn't necessarily a fun party town. However, the people are always fun to talk to. There's great places to hike and go camping.

    We hang out in our lobby and hang out with friends. The ASC puts on great dances throughout the year and attendance is always good for those activities. The school is only about an hour from the beach, Portland or the mountain. There is endless possibilities.

    The big city of Portland, Oregon is just 23 miles away, there is always something fun to do there! We also have multiple little shops in downtown Newberg which you can easily take up an entire afternoon looking at!

    There's a game almost every weekend in the sport center. If you have a car, it won't take you long to find something to entertain yourself with.

    Basically you have homework, movie nights, local thrifting, and coffee shops. Not to mention the 20 some churches and the drive in movies! Drive in movies are a must when they are open.

    You can go swing dancing in Portland, go bowling, etc etc. The college is alcohol free so there are no crazy raves to attend.

    Newberg is a great small town, with everything within 20 minutes. There's a cute vintage movie theater, a drive in theater, lots of little shops, and plenty of choices for places to eat out at. As for things to do on campus, some of the living areas plan events and sometimes there are campus-wide events. But if you really want to have fun, your best bet is to head into downtown Newberg.

    You can participate in many extracurricular activities. In fact, George Fox just got a football team, and will start playing next season. There also is the Bruin Grounds, a coffee shop in the basement of the cafeteria building. In Bruin Grounds, they host a few events, and has a pool table and a couple ping-pong tables. George Fox also hosts a few concerts, and Chapel is a great time to go and worship. But another great event is the Bruin Brawl, where each class (Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, Senior) is a team, and a team has to take a sack of potatoes off campus before the rest. This can get pretty rough, as it gets pretty hard to tell who's on who's team. Also, if your not into that, you can always play video games with your friends.
