George Fox University Reviews

Pros: The campus is pretty, academics are good, esteemed university, and "most" professors are great.
Cons: Cliques, expensive, lacking diversity, shove religious views down your throat and if you don't agree your grade suffers yet the student portal is evidence of rampant drugs/sex/partying, no assistance with job placement if you are an Adult degree student, and the film program professors need to be fired - horrible favoritism, uncommunicative, arrogant, and just plain nasty!
In summary, it's a good school IF you choose the right program, stay to yourself, and do NOT live on campus!

George Fox University is a great school for those who wish to discuss their religion and religious background without judgement. A contract is required because they want to maintain their Christ centered community. This is why there is no "Party Scene" because drinking, drugs, and other illicit activities are fodder for expulsion. They have been working on the Commuter community feel more at home, but it isn't as good as it could be as they seem to treat those who commute with a lack of focus. It has been getting better now that they have a Commuter Life Director, but it can still be rough. The faculty are also really great and understanding of their students. Overall, a great experience.
It's a beautiful campus in a beautiful area. If you are religious, it's a pretty decent University, but they do tend to put Jesus in everything (which isn't always bad, but can become frustrating if you're not Christian).
Their dorms are large and well kept, and their food is great.
If you aren't very outgoing, however, you may have a hard(er) time getting comfortable there.
Their professors are nice and knowledgeable in their chosen areas, and with their community classes, it's not that hard to find at least one friend.
All in all, I say it's a good campus to at least visit if you are Christian (or open to Christian ideologies).
