What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
First of all, go to a Bruin Preview. Visiting the school shows you around, but when you stay overnight, you get to be a part of the campus, meet other incoming students, and experience what it means to be at George Fox. Next, don't be afraid to ask questions. Ask students, teachers, or your counselors whatever questions you might have. That's why they're there. And finally, sit in a class and meet with a professor of your intended major or a area that interests you. This will help you prepare yourself for what's ahead.

Come visit anytime! Bruin Preview is always a good time since there are more things planned for visiting students to do. But anytime is a good time to spend the night and see real life on campus. And when you visit, or if you can't visit, ask questions -- any questions! Just hang out with us. I know when I first visited I was shy and intimidated because I forgot that the people I was staying with were real students, not salespeople for the school. Even the tiniest details you might think are dumb to ask about are worthwhile questions to ask. If you're wondering about something, it's not dumb.

Make a list of goals (academics first off) when and if you come. It is a lot easier to to keep your eye on the goal when you have that list handy when the temptation of distraction rolls around. Secondly, grades are important, but you need time to rest, and just hang out with others (besides your text book) so, get involved. There is bound to be a club that is just right for you that you could make a special contribution to. Next, thou shalt go to chapel! Just kidding, but there is a spiritual life credit minimum that you must earn while attending George Fox. There are way more opportunities for spiritual life credit than needed, but if you do end up coming here, I would challenge you to go more times than required. I have gained insight on topics that I would have never thought of before through the teachings of our speakers. Plus, it will stink if you wait till the last minute to earn your spiritual life credits, like around finals time, and you have to choose between that and studying. Lastly, I would encourage you to pray, whether your day is on cloud nine, or you are stressed to death about that test coming up. If you come to Fox or not, God has a plan for you, and you can trust that He knows what He is doing. That is a lesson I had to learn, and am continuing to learn through out the college experience.

Most definitely come and compete in the scholarship competition if at all possible! It will be worth your while. Also, you should try and make it to a Friday at Fox, Bruin Preview, or once you are accepted, Genesis. All of these events are very helpful and beneficial. The academic advisors are there for you to help you with any questions you have! They are so nice and treat everyone like they have known them forever! They get back to you in a timely manner and will answer any and all of your questions. If they don't know the answer to something themselves they will refer you to someone who does. Definitely, definitely talk to an advisor and ask them loads of questions!

Everyone should fill out the scholarship application for the school, and everyone should participate in the Scholarship Competition. It's a great way to win some renewable scholarships, and it's not very difficult. Also, do the Early Action deadline so you don't have to pay an application fee.
Corey from Grants Pass, OR
Work hard at getting satisfactory test scores on SATs, CLEPs, etc. so that you don't have to spend valuable time taking some of the required classes. Also, if you are interested in any major involving the medical field, take Anatomy in high school if it is available. It is best to get a jump start on the more difficult subjects.
Megan from Medford, OR
Take advantage of everything Fox has to offer! George Fox has many great opportunities for their students! Take advantage of them and don't be afraid to take risks! Also, don't be afraid to make friends. Everyone at George Fox is there for the same reason; to learn, to succeed and have a great time while doing it! So don't be afraid to try new things, and take advantage of all that Fox has to offer!

i would personally advise you to not focus on the costs of attending george fox until you speak with a financial adviser at george fox. this way you will see how kind and respectful the staff are along with how affordable george fox really is.
secondly, do some research. spread the word to family and friends that you are interested in george fox and try to get personal stories about experiences here so that you can start to see yourself as an integral member of the school, not only a student. search the website to see what clubs or activities you would want to be involved in so you can get plugged in from the beginning.
pray. this is a christian school, and having a relationship with god extends from chapel into the classroom and relationships. i love it and think that's what makes gfu tick, so pray and see if this is what god has planned for you individually.

Try your best to not buy textbooks from George Fox. They are very expensive! Try to get them off of amazon or ebay.
