Why I chose George Fox:
I like the small and friendly campus at George Fox. Coming from a fairly small high school, I was worried that a large university would be too big of an adjustment. I also felt that students here focused on their academics and were really taking their education seriously. I like the Christian campus and look forward to growing in my faith while receiving a quality education. The nursing program came highly recommended by many individuals whom I spoke with, and my visits assured me that this is where I belong. I’m really looking forward to being a part of the Bruin track and field team!
