George Fox University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (7)
George Fox University is a safe space to grow and learn, balancing a rigorous curriculum with a beautiful community life. Faculty genuinely care about their students, Residence Life invests itself so that each person is known, and the coaches mentor life as well as sport. The campus itself is set in the rolling hills of wine country, and a creek runs through the center of campus offering trails to those who want forested seclusion, though it is only about an hour each from the coastal dunes, from the slopes of Mt. Hood, and from the famous Voodoo donuts of Portland. Overall, an excellent university that truly delivers on the promise: "Be Known."
George Fox University was a wonderful university for me to attend. Not only did I receive an amazing education in my major but the university strives for students to receive a well rounded Christian liberal arts education, which I know I did. The academics are rigorous and taught by individuals who are very well versed in their fields. The on campus community is small enough to help students feel loved and at home. There was something always going on, whether it was a lecture or chapel, concert or play, sporting event or student led activity. The classes are small which provides the opportunity for students to get to know professors. Even five years later my professors remember me fondly and are still helpful.
GFU is a great, Christian university that focuses on helping students grow in their faith as well as the classroom!
George Fox has an excellent & beautiful campus. I really appreciated the size of the university when I attended, but it has grown considerably since then & I am not sure I would feel the same way now. The Computer Science program was excellent: the professors are fantastic.
Great school, enjoyed my learning experience a great deal. Feel that the program that I went through equipmed me to make a high level contribution thorughout my career. Materials were applicable for the most part into my profession of people management, relationship managent, and in general how to help a business sustain and grow.
One of the reasons I would recomend George fox University is the community of people that you get to know. It felt like I was in one big family when I was attending school. I was in the art department and had a friendship with the head of the artdepartment and all my prophecers.Tthe quality of teaching was superbe and they were always open to advice on how to improve the program. I learned a lote and feel it was benifitial to my carrier
The reason as to why I'm dissatisfied with my degree is because it has a rather broad look at business. I believe that taking a more skills based approach to college would be much more beneficial to obtaining a job and understanding what direction you would like to take your career in. While the BA is fun (and easy...) I would highly suggest getting a BS in something, simply for the challenge and actual skills acquired.
