University Receives Accolades for Value, Study Abroad Participation

Newberg campus

The university received high marks this summer from several national publications, touting the value of a George Fox education and the availability of study abroad opportunities.

Money magazine ranked George Fox as the top Christian college in Oregon in its “Best Colleges for your Money” issue, based on “educational quality, affordability, and career outcomes.” Likewise, Washington Monthly placed the school ahead of all other Christian universities in the Northwest in its “Best Bang for the Buck” rankings, which, in part, took into account student loan default and graduation rates.

More recognition came from U.S. News & World Report, which named George Fox one of “America’s Best Colleges” for the 25th consecutive year. Most notably, the university was ranked No. 53 out of 1,800 schools for study abroad participation, thanks to a variety of overseas service opportunities, a Semester Abroad program, and the always-popular Juniors Abroad, in which students participate in three-week, faculty-led excursions to locations around the globe.

On the lighter side of the rankings spectrum, College Prowler.com named George Fox the “Tamest Party Scene” among schools in Oregon, a distinction sure to play well with Bruin parents.
