About George Fox College

George Fox is the oldest Christian university in Oregon. More than 125 years ago, evangelical Quaker pioneers helped settle the rich and fruitful Chehalem Valley of Oregon, which is now known for its premier vineyards. George Fox is Oregon's nationally recognized Christian university, providing students with personal attention, global opportunities to learn and serve, and a support community that encourages academic rigor and spiritual growth. The university offers more than 40 majors, adult degree programs, six seminary degrees, and 12 master's and doctoral degrees. In addition to a residential campus in Newberg, Oregon, classes are now taught in Portland, Salem and Redmond, Oregon.
