Why I chose George Fox:
Here I can build my mind, body and soul in a Christian way. George Fox offers exceptional programs for pre-physical therapy, exercise science, and human performance; meanwhile, I can run on a competitive and closely connected track team to further develop myself as an athlete and a Christian.
