For the 29th time, George Fox was ranked as one of “America’s Best Colleges” by U.S. News & World Report. The school first received the distinction in 1987 and has made the list all but one year since.
The university ranked 23rd out of 124 in the “Best Regional Universities” West category for 2017, moving up five spots from the 2016 rankings. The category consists of universities that provide a full range of undergraduate and master’s-level programs, but relatively few doctoral programs.
George Fox is also listed by the magazine as one of the “Best Colleges for Veterans,” which includes schools that are in the top half of their U.S. News ranking category and had 20 or more students who used GI Bill benefits to partially or fully finance their tuition and fees during the 2015-16 academic year.
