Tent City

Each spring, sophomores pitch tents on the quad the night before Juniors Abroad selection day in anticipation of getting up early to stake their claim to their trips of choice. Tent City for Juniors Abroad trips in 2025 (formerly “Campus Campout”) is scheduled from 10 a.m. on Thursday, March 7, and will end with trip registration at 8 a.m. on Friday, March 8.

If you have questions about the event, contact Wendi Upjohn-Hankel at wupjohn@georgefox.edu.
