Be aware of sidewalk closure on east side of campus

Sunday, June 3rd, 2018

Starting Monday, June 4, the sidewalk and lawn area on the south side of the Roberts Center near the physical therapy entrance and the pathway between Canyon Commons and the Hadlock Student Center will be closed and blocked off for construction work. There may be a pathway available close to the Roberts Center, but it will be through the bushes and planter bed (not hard surface).

Pedestrian traffic from Lewis Apartments and Sherman Street east of the Hadlock Student Center to Canyon Commons and the Crisman Crossing pedestrian bridge will need to go the long way around Roberts Center to Brandt Hall and the north side of Canyon Commons (access through North Street).

The construction of this area is expected to be finished by Monday, June 25. Thank you for your patience as we complete updating this area!

It’s time for a culinary road trip with Bon Appetit

Sunday, June 3rd, 2018

We’re heading out on Route 66 again this summer and will be serving up foods that pay homage to this quintessential all-American highway every Wednesday (with the exception of July 4) from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., starting June 6 and running through Aug. 1.

We’ll be on the patio outside Canyon Commons the first few weeks and finish off our culinary journey on the patio outside the Klages Center. Don’t forget to pick up a road trip punch card and have it punched every time you join us; those who visit four or more times will be entered into a drawing for a raffle prize at the end of the road!

Historic Villa Road House to be relocated tomorrow

Friday, June 1st, 2018

If you’re on campus tomorrow (Sunday), feel free to come watch the moving of the historic Villa Road House, which will be transported, along with the smaller carriage house, down Fulton and North Meridian streets to a new location on Sheridan Street. The Villa Road House will be renamed the Chehalem House.

The move will begin at around 5:30 a.m. and finish up late in the afternoon. The university has obtained a public right-of-way permit, so no street parking will be allowed on affected portions of Fulton Street or North Meridian Street tonight until after the structures have passed. Parking will be available in the Bauman and Stoffer Stadium lot.

There will be detours and road closures throughout the day. Most notably, North Meridian will be closed at Highway 99W as the house navigates onto the new site. Fulton and North Meridian streets will be blocked for portions of Sunday.

For all the details on the move, visit this page.

Important Vehicle Registration Information for Fall 2018

Monday, May 28th, 2018

We’ve been receiving calls wondering when vehicle registration for this fall will open up, and the answer is July! It will be a roll-out registration like last summer, with those who will be seniors registering first, then juniors, then sophomores, etc. Information will be posted in the Daily Bruin and sent via email, so keep watching for further details.

Commuter and graduate permits won’t be limited, but residential permits will be, so please carefully consider if you really do need a car on campus – or if taking advantage of the Enterprise Car Share program would be a much cheaper alternative, as permits will be $100 per semester.

Questions? Contact Nadine Kincaid (nkincaid@georgefox.edu).

Some outdoor safety tips for the three-day weekend

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

With a long holiday weekend ahead, here are some safety tips if camping, hiking or backpacking are on your get-away list!

  • Research cell phone coverage for your trip. If you will be out of range, find out how to access services for the ranger or local law enforcement. Check out communication devices at outdoor stores that allow you to text, boost your signal or use your cell phone as a radio in case of emergency.
  • Leave at home or in a safety deposit box all jewelry, electronics, unneeded cash and credit cards. Connect with other campers, and if they seem trustworthy, agree to watch each other’s tent and camping equipment when out on a hike or day excursion.
  • Take valuables with you if at all possible or use a diversion safe that looks like an ordinary object.
  • Hide items that you need to store in your vehicle and transfer them to your trunk prior to arriving at your destination.
  • Lock your vehicle and close windows and sunroofs.
  • Look for people loitering around parking areas, and don’t leave your car if there are suspicious persons hanging around.
  • Trust your instincts! If something feels “off” about a campsite or campers, follow your gut.
  • Carry a whistle or noise-maker to draw attention to yourself if you need help.
  • Make a family plan about what to do if any family member becomes separated from the group.

These great tips are courtesy of the City of Portland’s Crime Prevention Program.
