Dates and Events

George Fox University parents are invited to take part in many events and activities throughout the year.
The biggest family event of the year is Family Weekend. Other events include the University Day of Prayer in March, and First Reunion for parents of graduating seniors each Spring. For fine arts, athletic, and holiday events, consult the University Calendar. We encourage you to be involved with your student's college life by participating in these great events.
