Here at George Fox we live by the motto, “Be Known.” It isn’t just something that we say to lure students into our school, it is something that is lived out every single day by our staff and students. I have never been a part of a community that is so driven to get to know who I am, not only as a student, but also as a person.
I have many Be Known stories from my short time here at Fox, but the one that stands out to me the most came from the first semester of my sophomore year. I walked into my Christian Foundations class and was greeted by Dr. Anderson Campbell. He told us to fill out an index card with our name and a prayer request; he said that this was the way that he was going to be taking attendance for the rest of the year. At first I didn’t think anything of it – I thought it was just a clever way to take attendance without having to take time out of class.
