    My classes that had to be moved online once COVID started were not as good. We made do with Zoom and whatnot, but those classes were made to be in-person, not online. I do have one class this semester that was transitioned to be online and I think it is going fairly well. I am missing out on observation hours (it's a teaching class) that I would have otherwise received from the class if there wasn't a virus, but it's going very well!

    I had an amazing experience at George Fox University! The Professors and Staff are very helpful and encouraging, and their goal is to help you do well in your classes and in life in general. The students there are very kind and outgoing and it’s easy to make good friends. Overall George Fox is an uplifting and wonderful place to become more educated.
    The 'Be Known' promise really rings true. I've never felt more supported by faculty and staff than I do here at Fox. Professors truly care about you and your education, and the intimate class sizes help to provide a quality education!
