The campus has expanded in recent years to include 70 buildings. The most recent expansion is the 2006 purchase of an adjacent eight acres formerly occupied by Providence Newberg Hospital. A new athletic field facility, the Austin Sports Complex, is a 24-acre tract north of the campus that serves as home to our soccer and lacrosse teams.
Our facilities include science, engineering and nursing labs equipped with the latest equipment and software; renovated classrooms; the 1,150-seat Bauman Auditorium, which has such a high sound quality that the Portland Symphony records here; and excellent athletic facilities, including the newly built Stoffer Family Stadium/Duke Athletic Center, home to our football and track programs.
Through numerous activities – sports, fellowship, study groups, Bible studies, etc. – our student body strives to create a fun, encouraging atmosphere.
Newberg is a friendly community close to a major metropolitan environment of 1.9 million people. It is also among the safest cities in Oregon. In a study released in 2015 by SafeWise, a a community-focused safety organization, Newberg ranked among the top five "safest cities in Oregon."*
Located on the Willamette River, Newberg has a population of 20,000. Historic downtown Newberg consists of a variety of stores, art galleries, coffee shops, restaurants and a retro movie theater. Newberg is also home to a drive-in movie theater – one of just 500 in the nation – and side roads lead to hillside vineyards, state parks and working farms. The city enjoys a vibrant community spirit by bringing residents together for events such as the Newberg Old Fashioned Festival.
For those who love the outdoors, the Chehalem Parks and Recreation District manages 11 parks in and around Newberg. The parks include Frisbee golf, basketball and tennis courts, softball and soccer fields, nature trials and much more.
The city is also home to a nationally renowned skate park that has 29,000 square feet of concrete surface. Prefer bikes? Next to the skate park is an expertly designed BMX track.
*SafeWise released its 10 Safest Cities in Oregon Report on Dec. 14, 2015. To compile this report, SafeWise analysts considered the most recent FBI crime data from 2013 to rank cities, which all have a minimum population of 3,000 people.
Oregon stretches from the Pacific Coast, over the Coast Range, through the fertile Willamette Valley, past the snowcapped Cascades, and into the high-desert country of central and eastern Oregon. Oregon is spectacular, so it’s no surprise that tourism is one of the state's largest industries, along with high technology, forest products and agriculture.
Portland is a short drive from campus. The city is home to the Old Town district, the Tom McCall Waterfront Park, numerous art galleries and museums, a number of theatre groups and jazz clubs, Powell’s City of Books and a world-class symphony, ballet, and opera. Other attractions include the Oregon Zoo, the Japanese Garden, the International Rose Test Gardens, and the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry. Every June, the city hosts its Rose Festival, with three parades, a coronation, and 25 days of festival events.
Portland has 9,400 acres of parks, including Mill Ends Park, the smallest in the world. The city also offers entertainment that includes the Portland Trail Blazers NBA team and the Portland Winter Hawks WHL ice hockey squad.
Nearby mountain ranges are about a two-hour drive away, and rugged coastal beaches are an hour’s drive away.
Our Portland Center is located in Portland, near Tigard. It is home to George Fox Evangelical Seminary, our graduate counseling programs, and degree-completion programs for working adults. The center also offers Master of Arts in Teaching courses and our part-time MBA program.
Our Salem Site offers graduate and degree-completion programs to residents in the mid-Willamette Valley. It offers master’s degrees in counseling and teaching (MAT), and bachelor’s degrees in elementary education and social and behavioral studies.
