Why I chose George Fox:
I chose to go to George Fox because of its outstanding Christian education, a great welcoming environment, and an opportunity to play sports beyond the high school level in a school that supports its athletes spiritually as well as academically. The chance to be surrounded by like-minded individuals and professors who are passionate about their teaching made George Fox a favorite school of choice.
