What Our Veteran Students Say About George Fox


United States Army

“Exiting the armed services is akin to leaving a family behind. As I faced those fears, I was met with compassion and problem solving from so many people at Fox, from the Disability Services Office to the dean of the School of Business, to each professor who encouraged me to keep showing up, ready to learn.”

Joyce del Rosario (Accounting/Finance, ’23)


United States Navy

“As a new student at George Fox, I was able to quickly find my footing academically. Now I can dive into what I love the most, which is connecting with my fellow veterans. I’m grateful for all the George Fox staff members who have been so supportive and connected me to the different services the university offers.”

DeBorah Peterson, USN (Social Work, ’23)


United States Air Force

“George Fox expedited my transfer credits seamlessly and also accredited me for a lot of the military courses I took in the Army toward my nursing degree.”

Rob Pielaet (Nursing, ’24)


United States Marine Corps

“Being a reservist student at a military-friendly campus really helped me when drill weekends conflicted with classes. My professors were always friendly, professional and flexible. George Fox students and faculty both had a major role in helping me stay disciplined and on track while I was attending.”

Gabriel Messing (Music, ’23)
