    George Fox really does live out their Be Known promise. As an engineering student, I’ve gotten great hands-on experience, I have access to a huge engineering facility, and my professors are able to integrate their science/math courses with faith, which is incredible! The local area is charming, the campus is beautiful and feels private, and I’ve built lifelong friendships.

    I absolutely love Fox and the community here! Their "Be Known" promise is very real here. All of the students and faculty are extremely friendly, which helped a lot when I was getting adjusted to living here. Also, the professors are outstanding and also live out the "Be Known" promise by wanting to get to know us better, besides just being a student.
    My Bruin Preview experience was exceptional! I sensed a real connection to the University and believed my college experience academically, socially, and spiritually would be excellent.
