Welcome to George Fox - George Fox University

Welcome Weekend 2015

August 27-30

Upon your arrival, you will be introduced to student life at Welcome Weekend – a jam-packed four days that will give you a chance to get acclimated, get acquainted with other students and faculty members, and just have a blast. The event includes a Mystery Bus Tour and campus-wide country barbecue. Need we say more?

We are so glad you have chosen Fox!
