For the 32nd year, George Fox landed on U.S. News & World Report’s “America’s Best Colleges” list – but this time at a higher level. The university was elevated from a regional university to the “Best National Universities” category, putting the institution in the same class as big-name schools like Stanford, Harvard and Princeton.

George Fox was the top-ranked school among Christian universities in Oregon (No. 246 overall) and also was recognized for “Best Undergraduate Teaching” (No. 61), “Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs” (No. 75) and “Top Performers in Social Mobility” (No. 80), which includes schools that enroll and graduate large proportions of “economically disadvantaged” students.


The university also made Forbes’ “America’s Top Colleges” list, ranking No. 1 among Christian colleges in Oregon and No. 20 among all Christian colleges in the country.


Money magazine, meanwhile, included George Fox in its “Best Colleges for Your Money” list, placing the institution No. 1 among Christian colleges in Oregon and in the top 20 nationally among Council for Christian Colleges & Universities governing members based on quality of education, affordability and career outcomes.
