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!
Review George Fox University
Be a baby freshman, I was a tad nervous my first day of college. This anxiety all slipped away once I met my peers- they're so kind and caring, some even quite witty. The grand mass of professors that I've learned from are outstanding, I always manage to find something unique or intriguing about one. So far I've made numerous friends, am thoroughly enjoying my coursework, and can't wait to weekdays!
Academics are excellent. They back up the Be Known slogan: professors are genuinely invested in students' success. The engineering and nursing programs are top notch, well worth the cost of attendance.

There are many kinds of people at Fox. You will likely connect well with a group...and not want to associate with anyone else.

There are very good people at GFU, who love God and love people, and know how to do both of those things well.

There are people at Fox who are good, but whose faith has many blind spots, and is shallow. That's okay: college is a place for growth.

And there are:
-White Supremacists
-Trump Supporters
-People who rage upon hearing the word Feminism
-Flat-Earthers so convinced because of something in Psalms (no joke)
-People who burned an effigy of Obama
-People whose Jesus has nothing to do with mine

And look up the administration's handling of former student Jayce Montgomery.

If you feel like this may be home for you, come, and make this place better.
