Marketing Student Experiences
“My education at George Fox has included many great experiences, but two stand out most in my mind: the international education I received – learning about global markets from professors that have had experience in many different countries – along with the friendships I have been blessed to develop with professors. The ability to have genuine conversations with them has strengthened my education tremendously.”
- Garrett LoVerde (’13)
“Ninety percent of my visits to various professors’ offices had nothing to do with the classes I had with them. I had one advisor on record, but I have used many of the business professors as advisors in my life outside the classroom. Without them, I would not be on the same track that I am on now.”
