George Fox students receive one of the top values among private universities in the United States, according to Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine. In 2011-12, Kiplinger’s ranked George Fox No. 80 overall for “best value” and No. 4 among schools in the 113-member Council of Christian Colleges & Universities. George Fox’s average debt at graduation was the lowest among the CCCU schools in Kiplinger's private universities category.

- Be Known
You might get lost in the crowd at some universities – but not at George Fox. We want to know you on a personal, academic and spiritual level.
That means not only understanding where you’ve come from and where you want to go, but also providing personalized guidance to help you get there.
- Christ-centered community
You’ll find that faith permeates everything we do here, from the way our professors teach to the way we relate to one another as a community.
We also strongly believe that we’re called to serve, whether that involves lending a helping hand to our neighbors or traveling across the globe to assist and minister to those in need.
- Nationally recognized
You’ll receive personal attention from our professors thanks to a low 13:1 student-to-faculty ratio, and opportunities for undergraduate research and hands-on learning that wouldn’t normally be available at bigger schools.
At the same time, George Fox has the resources to consistently rank among the top Christian universities in the nation in publications like U.S. News & World Report, Forbes and Kiplinger's Personal Finance. It’s the best of both worlds.

Whether your future plans involve grad school or jumping directly into the job market, a George Fox education can help you achieve your goals.
