Student Experiences

"What I've learned here is that being a Christian is more than going to church; it's about being a leader, a servant, and being an example of Christ by treating people with compassion."

"George Fox taught me to think. I was challenged by professors I trusted to examine the why behind my beliefs about everything from philosophy to business."

"I am in no way the same person I came here as … Above all I have learned more about the gospel and how life changing it is and how Jesus must consume all I do because of it."

"Above all else, my experience at George Fox has fostered within me an innate desire to serve others. You don’t have to be a pastor to share the love of Christ."

"I've grown a lot since coming to George Fox. I've grown as a believer in Christ. I've also grown in my ability and self-confidence in what I'm called to do. Coming into college, I was nervous and scared. Now, I know I'm more than able."

"My professors helped me deconstruct and reconstruct my worldview in an open, supportive, caring Christian environment that welcomed intellectual pursuits as God-honoring, rather than as a threat to established orthodoxies."
