Why I chose George Fox:
The excellent quality of the engineering program mixed with the religious atmosphere and the chance to play baseball made George Fox the perfect fit for me. I think this school will best prepare me for my life after college because I’ll get the education for my future occupation and the life lessons from the religious side. Also, the chance to continue to play baseball at the collegiate level made this school the most well-rounded choice for my home for the next four years.
