Beginning in the fall of 2018, George Fox students will have a new 30,000-square-foot space in which to work out, play and congregate.

Plans call for a student activity center to be built on the east side of campus, overlooking Hess Creek Canyon and adjacent to the recently completed Canyon Commons dining hall. The facility will tentatively include two basketball/volleyball courts, a 5,400-square-foot area designated as office space for student government and clubs, a fitness center, a rock-climbing wall, a yoga/dance/aerobics studio and a student lounge. The two basketball floors will also be used for campus-wide events.

“Ultimately, this building is being designed to enhance the student experience,” says Brad Lau, vice president of student life. “We’re excited for what this means for George Fox and for the students who will use this space for everything from intramural sports to dances to club meetings. It will be a dynamic space for student involvement, engagement, activities and leadership.”
