"This has been a terrible let down. I earned by Bachelors degree from GFU and expected the Master's program to be equally as rewarding, relevant, and educational; I'm afraid I was incorrect. The assignments are all over the place, the lectures have been incredibly disappointing, and I am very worried that none of this is going to prepare me for the next step in my career. I am afraid my MBA will open doors that I am simply unprepared to enter. It feels as if they are trying to cram as much as they can in each class, resulting in students being over inundated with content and walking away with very little learned. Students are mainly figuring out how to pass the quiz, ace the test, or get a high mark on their papers, rather than learning any course content. Very disappointed- I've heard many students talk about finding another program and I am considering the same."

"While at George Fox University, many years ago now, I was challenged and grown in ways that were both exhilarating and scary at the time! Many professors and faculty showed up to support me as I questioned new things and grew more into who I want to be in this world. These people, some with whom I am still in touch, influenced me greatly and I consider the social network from these years in Newberg to be one of the most valuable things that I gained from this college experience. Furthermore, I was introduced to Quaker spirituality which hugely impacted the direction that my life took in my post-college years."

"George Fox University lives up to its "Be Known" promise. Each faculty member cares deeply about each student. The small class sizes allow students to receive a better education due to more one-on-one time with professors. The environment on campus is always warm and welcoming- You feel at home anywhere you go! George Fox University not only holds academics in high regard, but it also your well-being and personal growth. It is a university unlike any other!"

"George Fox has the saying of "Be Known" that lives true if you put in the effort and confidence to put yourself out there. Visit your professors during office hours and they will want to learn things about you. Meet other staff members and students and the school starts to feel like a family to you if you put yourself out there. I was a student athlete and an engineering major, and I felt that my professor supported me as athlete by asking how the year has been going and what were some goals that I had set for myself each year. We even had an event where the engineering faculty recognized all the engineering majors who were also student athletes to recognize the time work it takes to do two daunting tasks in college."

"The faculty and staff are amazing and are always willing to help students and alumni with opportunities that align with professional and personal interests. Faculty are available for students and the program allows for many students to get to know their professors very closely. The curriculum itself prepares students very well for the rigor of graduate school as well as for the workforce."

"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."

"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."
