Many students who visit a campus from out of state can feel unprepared, nervous or overwhelmed. Here at George Fox, we want to help students understand what to expect and prepare for when they are traveling to Oregon from another state!

Here are some big questions that we can help you answer: 

What airport should I fly into?

We recommend you fly into Portland International Airport (PDX) because it is the closest airport to our campus. The undergraduate admissions office offers transportation  to campus from the Portland airport, train station or bus depot for admissions visitors. Please note that this service is provided by a third-party transportation company and is only available to students travelling without a parent or guardian. One-week notice is required for all transportation requests. Call 503-554-2249 or email for more information.

Where should I stay while I am visiting?

Many hotels offer a 10% discount for George Fox family and friends (and one offers a 15% discount, as noted). To receive a discount, please call the local number and ask for the George Fox discount.

We have an abundance of restaurants in the Newberg area, as well as some coffee shops if you’re not looking for a full meal.
