On-Campus Department Summits

Every department will host departmental summits - a chance for you to come to campus and interact with your future department. During these summits, you’ll have the chance to interview with a professor, learn more about your major and department, and get a chance to meet some future classmates! Sure, there’s an interview, but don't be intimidated; our professors are AMAZING people who teach because they love engaging with students. Best of all, 80-90% of participants walk away with a $1,000-$3,000* scholarship per year!

*$1,000-$3,000 for Early Action applicants, $1,000-$2,000 for Priority Decision applicants

Transportation is available from the Portland airport, train station or bus depot for students traveling from outside the local area without a parent or guardian. For local students (30 mile radius) who do not have any way to get to campus, transportation is available.

If you need transportation, please email visit@georgefox.edu with your travel itinerary by February 25 if you did not submit your plans on the registration form. We will then follow up with you regarding shuttle details.

If you'll be driving yourself to/from the airport, keep in mind that it's about an hour away from campus.
