George Fox climbs in rankings

George Fox University climbed again in the 2005 ranking of "America’s Best Colleges" by U.S. News & World Report magazine. The university moved to 15th in the top tier of the "Best Universities - Masters" west region category. It was ranked 18th a year ago. George Fox also is ranked in the magazine’s listing of "Best Values: Great schools at great prices."

And, in a new recognition, George Fox received "Best in the West" designation by The Princeton Review. George Fox is one of 102 schools surveyed for the first time, and its closest constituents - its students - gave the university high marks.

The Princeton Review rankings consider academics, quality of life, admissions selectivity, and financial aid. George Fox students were invited to participate in an online survey hosted by the magazine. They were asked to voice their opinions about the university, with questions in each category.

The 2005 student opinion data is available at www.PrincetonReview.com. The U.S. News rankings - including the component information on each college’s score - are available online at www.usnews.com.
