Order legacy stoles for spring commencement by April 3

Monday, March 27th, 2017

Legacy students are students who have at least one parent or grandparent who is considered an alumni of an undergraduate or graduate degree program at George Fox University.

In order to thank these students and their families for their continued commitment to George Fox, we will present graduating legacy students with a legacy stole that may be worn during spring commencement to display their family legacy. There is no cost for the legacy stole; the stole is our way of recognizing families that have shown a long-term dedication to George Fox.

If you are interested in ordering a legacy stole to celebrate your family’s continued commitment to George Fox University, please contact Megan Fisher, associate director of parent programs, at mfisher@georgefox.edu, no later than Monday, April 3, 2017.

Survey for Student-Athletes

Friday, March 24th, 2017

“Leave it all on the field!” This has been a mantra for all athletes and coaches in their competitive athletic events on the field. The question is, “What about off the field when an athlete is no longer able to compete?”

Practices, watching film, meetings with coaches, and studying stats have all helped athletes prepare for
obstacles on the field. What preparations do athletes make for off it? George Fox provides resources to athletes such as gyms, fields and specialty equipment to prepare for their sport. When it comes to preparing for a career, what resources does George Fox offer and do student-athletes utilize them?

Student-athletes, you have been asked to participate in this senior research project to help determine whether or not George Fox provides the proper resources to help student-athletes transition from sports retirement to a career life and if athletes utilize them or not.

The survey is made up of 25 required questions (marked by asterisks), four not required, and eight optional text boxes that will take approximately 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
