Commuter Life Team

George Fox University is intentional about engaging and equipping commuter students with resources for their academic journey. Almost half of the undergraduate population commutes to campus. This is a significant portion of our community, and we have a team in place to serve you. We strive to help every commuter feel known at George Fox. If you would like to set up a time to get to know a member of the team, simply email commuterlife@georgefox.edu

Why are you working for Fox as the Director of Commuter Life?
Great question, I’m glad you asked! I love working with college students to help them feel connected with others and supported in their academic journey. College is such a transformational time and it is important to have people around you supporting you along the way. My ultimate desire is for God to use my skills and gifts to serve students here at Fox. If you are a commuter, I am excited to get to know you and journey this this year with you.

Favorite place to study on campus: Bruin Den ALL DAY

Why I wanted to be the Commuter Life Coordinator:
I wanted to be the Commuter Life Coordinator because I think it is so important for students to feel like they have a community, even if they don’t live on campus and have floor events and area programs. It is my hope to help the rest of the Commuter Life team plan and implement relevant commuter programs that help commuters connect with each other and feel valued and important as a George Fox student.

Major: Cinematic Arts
Class standing: Junior
Favorite place to study on campus: The Foxhole

Why I wanted to be a Commuter Assistant: 
Deciding to be a Commuter Assistant was largely based in order to build and integrate commuters into a community that encourages creating relationships with one another and supporting their own relationship with themselves. I have a passion for people, and an even larger passion for cultivating personal growth. I understand how difficult it can be to connect with people, especially as a commuter, and seek to help and encourage others to be a part of the community that is George Fox University.

Major: Double-major in Graphic Design and Illustration
Favorite place to study on campus: Outside! Or in the Bridge Cafe

Why I wanted to be a Commuter Assistant
Last year, I quickly realized the importance of seeking out community on campus. It won't always come to you; you have to do your part to find it. However, the commuter life team did a wonderful job of making community easier for me to find. This year, I want to do my part to give back to Commuter Life and witness how God will work through our team this year.

Favorite place to study on campus: In the library hidden behind the stacks

Why I wanted to be a Commuter Assistant: 
I want to reach out to the commuters and make them feel connected to campus life while further integrating myself into Fox society. I think this is a great role to not only be a voice for the commuters but also a friend for anyone who needs it. It’s my goal to build authentic relationships with students and make sure they have a safe, comfortable space on campus.

Favorite place to study on campusStevens in a comfy chair, since Hoover never has any seating

Why I wanted to be a Commuter Assistant:
I love meeting new people and saw this opportunity as a great way to do just that! Commuters are a huge part of the student body, and helping them feel involved on campus is something that I felt would be really exciting to be a part of. Living off-campus is awesome (let’s be honest here), but so is being a part of the George Fox Community. I hope I can help others have the best of both worlds!
