Important info for tomorrow’s home football game

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

The campus will look a bit different on Saturday, Oct. 10, as we expect to host around 3,000 guests for homecoming weekend and our football game. Here are some things to make note of:

Bauman Parking Lot
Be sure to move your cars out of the Bauman parking lot on Friday evening. This space will be dedicated to vendors and tailgating on Saturday. Stop by on Saturday and check out all of the food and activities (including a car-smash) happening before the game!

Entrances to the football game
There will be two entrances into the game and both are located in the Bauman parking lot, directly behind the stadium.

Wheeler Sports Center closed
The Wheeler Sports Center will be closed from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. This means the basketball gym, racquetball courts and locker rooms will be closed. The Fitness Center will remain open for normal business hours, but you will need to enter through the hallway entrance located on the field level, toward the end of the building near the tennis courts. There will be security officers who will ask you where you are headed; just let them know that you are going to work out.

Bauman Walkway
The sidewalk located between the football stadium and Bauman will be closed. Please walk around the building and do not move the barricade.

If you see a barricade, it is there for a reason. Please do not move them, jump over them, crawl under them, or unlock them.

Circle Parking Lot
The circle parking lot near Wheeler will be closed for the day. This space is reserved for officials to park in. Officials will arrive as early as 8:30 a.m.

Sideline Passes
No one will be granted field access without a sideline pass. Sideline passes are issued to those who are required to work and/or have official business during the game.

Students and staff can show their ID cards at the gate to get into the game. Additional tickets can be purchased online or at the gate by visiting this link.

Tailgate Reunions
There will be special gatherings on Saturday at 11 a.m. in the Bauman lot for alumni to reconnect with classmates in a fun, relaxed setting. The reunion will include lunch and a specific place for you and your classmates. Please also join us at the resident life tailgate tent before the game if you are a part of this affinity group.

We hope to see you at the game against Lewis & Clark at 1:30 p.m. and the tailgates prior to that!

Science & Religion Club

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

Have you ever thought about how science can prove or disprove the existence of God? What about the biblical and scientific views on the age of the earth and evolution? How did life begin? Where does morality come from?

If you’ve ever found yourself stuck at a crossroads where science and Christianity seem to clash, you’re in luck! This semester, a club devoted to thinking about and discussing the great divide between faith and science is starting up.

We will be planning movie nights and inviting speakers to George Fox to share their experiences interacting with both worlds. All are invited to join who are eager to learn more about the conflicts and compromises between these two viewpoints.

Interested? Please email Mckenna Tornblad at mtornblad14@georgefox.edu.
