Robby Larson

Meet your new alumni director
Robby Larson, the new director of alumni relations, needed just two days to get into the spirit of his new position. "I started on a Wednesday, and by Friday I had bought a George Fox hat and was cheering on the Bruin basketball teams," he says.

Larson, 28, arrived in January from California Lutheran University, where he was director of student programs. He grew up in Portland before attending Pacific Lutheran, from which he earned a marketing degree in 2000, and Cal Lutheran, where he earned an MBA in 2002.

Larson says he’s honored to provide services and events that promote relationship between the university and its 18,000 alumni. "I’m at a place that honors Christ and is rich in tradition," he says. "My job is to keep alumni connected to what we’re doing here and remind them why George Fox is such a special place."
