Find Your Fit

University Recreation exists so that every George Fox student can find their fit through exercise, play, exploration and competition.

We work toward this vision through our mission to provide transformational recreation programs and services that impact and change the lives of every George Fox student for the better.

Intramural Sports

At George Fox, we believe everyone who wishes to get in the game should be given that opportunity. Our intramurals program gives students an outlet for friendly competition and a forum to build relationships, foster teamwork and create memories.

Outdoor Recreation (OREC) programs at George Fox exist to create opportunities for students to explore their environment, learn new skills, try new things, and meet other students! OREC offers a variety of trips and activities, from on-campus introductory courses to week-long adventures (and everything in between).
