This is not an ordinary tour. Forget about facts concerning dates, statistics and people you don’t know. Instead, you are about to learn how George Fox students use these campus settings – the stories, quirks and traditions that make each place unique.
Opened in 2001, this building houses the student life, housing/residence life, career services, admissions, registrar, financial services and institutional technology offices. It is also home to the president’s office and the Center for Peace and Justice.
The campus center -- and the ideal place to study or hang with friends on those sunny days -- the quad is bordered by all the key academic buildings where you'll take the majority of your classes. At the center is the Centennial Tower, built in 1991 to commemorate the university's 100th anniversary.

Completed in 2006, this grass-covered, tiered semi-circular bowl is used for theatrical, musical, residence life, academic and chapel events. And, with its natural backdrop of trees and stream, it's not a bad place to study or just hang out.
Completed in 1977, the facility houses three full-sized basketball courts, two racquetball courts, a weight room, training rooms, locker rooms, and offices for athletics and the health and human performance department.
