George Fox students in Newberg

It’s no secret that the city George Fox University calls home is safe – but now it’s official. According to Movoto Real Estate, the Newberg-Dundee metropolitan area is the fourth-safest place in the state of Oregon, right behind West Linn, Wilsonville and nearby Sherwood.

To come up with its rankings, Movoto analyzed the FBI’s 2012 Oregon Crime Report for metropolitan areas with a population of 10,000 or more, taking into account violent crime, property crime and the percentage chance that a resident will be a victim of crime.
