Student Experiences

Victoria Wilson

“I will remember first and foremost the relationships I formed here and how those people showed me new perspectives and prompted me to think about things differently. I really enjoyed the hands-on nature of the business program, and being taught by professors with spectacular past business experience. This school has had a tremendous influence on who I am today.”

- Victoria Wilson

Tyler Richwine

“Ninety percent of my visits to various professors’ offices had nothing to do with the classes I had with them. I had one advisor on record, but I have used many of the business professors as advisors in my life outside the classroom. Without them, I would not be on the same track that I am on now.”

- Tyler Richwine

Drew Van der Werff (finance and business administration), Goldman Sachs

“George Fox University has instilled a sense of integrity in my life that is not only a solid foundation on which to build, but gives me a market value that many post-undergrad students cannot claim. As a result, I have confidence that I will be successful at carrying out what Christ has planned for my life.”

- Drew Van der Werff (finance and business administration), Goldman Sachs
