George Fox University

College Degree Finder

In 1885, Quakers founded George Fox University (GFU), a private Christian school of liberal arts, sciences, and professional studies, in downtown Newberg, Oregon. While its main campus remains there today, it now has centers in Portland, Salem, Redmond, and Boise. The school offers a large selection of courses in several areas including Psychology, Business, Education, Counseling, Physical Therapy, and Seminary.

In addition to providing bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees, GFU offers study-abroad programs through the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, and research opportunities through the Richter Scholars program.

Not only does George Fox University provide many academic opportunities for its 3,500 students, it also offers varsity sports teams for both men and women in basketball, cross country, soccer, tennis, golf, and track and field. Women may also play on the softball or volleyball teams while men have the option to play baseball. The university sports program, which competes in Division III of the NCAA , as one of the nine members of the Northwest Conference, continues to expand, and the school expects to add women’s lacrosse and men’s football by the end of 2014.
