February 16–17

Return to George Fox and renew connections during Homecoming 2007. Much has changed at the university in the last two years. We’ve renovated the Hoover Academic Building, added a residence hall and amphitheater, and purchased the former Providence Newberg Hospital property. The theme, “Building on Our Past,” will highlight these and other changes while emphasizing our unchanging core as a Christ-centered university. We hope that you’ll come home and see that, while much is changing, more is staying the same.

The classes of 1947, 1967, 1977, 1982, 1987, and 1997 will be honored. An affinity reunion will be held for the New Vision Singers.

For more information, call the Office of University Relations at 503-554-2131.


February 24

Donald Miller, author of Blue Like Jazz, will speak at a youth ministry conference presented by the university and seminary. Miller will talk about the mentors he had when he was young and will encourage those attending to both seek and be mentors.
