February 3–4
HomecomingCome home to George Fox and renew connections during Homecoming 2006. The university is growing rapidly, and “Connecting at the Speed of Life” will emphasize the importance of relationships and provide opportunities to preview the future of the university.

Come see how much the campus has changed since you left — we’ve done plenty of building and remodeling of late. Connect with the friends and professors of your past. Catch a Bruin basketball game, a theatre production, and an alumni celebration brunch.

The classes of 1946, 1966, 1976, 1981, 1986, and 1996 will be honored. Affinity reunions will be held for former participants in track, cross country, and the a cappella choir under Jerry Friesen.
