Find out what it’s like to be part of the Residence Life team at George Fox

By Jared Larson (’15)

Earlier this month the Houses and Apartments East Residence Life Staff went on a retreat to Oceanside, Ore. All 12 crazy RAs, our AAC, our goofy area coordinator, her husband and two kids went on the retreat. I had never been to Oceanside before. I was told it was 10 miles outside of Tillamook and there was no cell phone service. I knew this trip was going to be a good one – I could feel it! (more…)

Serve Day Photos & Video

Nearly 1700 students and staff provided about 10,000 hours of volunteer service Sept. 7 at the university’s annual Serve Day. This year’s theme, “Be Known by Love,” was based on John 13:34-35: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Here are a few photos of that love in action.

Team leader Clint Baldwin and the women of Coffin 3 West spent their Serve Day at Medical Teams International. While there, they had the opportunity to explore the Real Life Exhibit. Sophomore Meghan Timmons talks about the powerful impact of her experience.

Bruin Madness

This past Saturday was the first ever “Bruin Madness,” an event created to bring George Fox fans together to cheer on and support the Bruin Basketball teams to victory, which they did. Before the game was a tailgate party where Fox fans could make signs, paint their faces, spray their hair blue, and of course chow down on the best food the Bon has to offer; tater tots (and other good stuff). The atmosphere during the games was incredible as fans screamed excitement, hissed bad judgment and of course, did the wave. From shirts to painted faces, this blue zone crowd made it almost feel like we were in a state school. Go Bruins!  After the games students clamored to the post-game blowout to eat food, rock loud music and celebrate the Bruin victories.
