Student Experiences

Bo Jin

“As a management major I learned how to relate concepts from classes to the real business world. I also really liked the idea of doing real business projects in my Senior Capstone course before graduation. George Fox has really helped prepare me for my future.” 

- Bo Jin

Hilary Sarjent

“In one of my management classes, we were given a case study and asked to identify who had the potential to cause the most harm. The professor directed our attention to the person who knew what was happening was wrong but did not use their influence to correct the situation. Many universities can teach how to be a business professional, but few can also help shape people into being like Christ.”

- Hilary Sarjent
