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 I wanted to be a Commuter Assistant
I wanted to be a commuter assistant because I love to meet people and hear out their individual story, while building a genuine connection with them. I will strive to carry out the Be Known promise to all, even to students who do not reside on campus. As the team’s small events coordinator, I can say I am excited for birthday celebrations with everyone and coffee connections. I look forward to meeting you!
