Come enjoy a weekend filled with exciting events for the whole family, including musical performances, fun family activities, and various athletic events. Make sure to arrange your lodging arrangements early if you plan to stay in Newberg.

Parent Communication

As a reminder, there are three avenues we use to communicate parent events and information. Parent Perspectives is a monthly email newsletter that features helpful family-focused articles, student perspectives, upcoming events, and other resources. Our George Fox University Parents Facebook page also highlights upcoming events and pictures of campus life. You can also find us on Instagram at @georgefoxfamily!

These groups are designed to connect you with the university and with fellow parents during this unique time in life. Den gatherings are typically hosted by families in regional locations. If you are interested in connecting to an existing Den or hosting a gathering in your home, you can learn more about the Den here.

We are honored that your student has chosen George Fox! Our desire is that each student will Be Known and that Christ will be at the center of everything we do. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
