  • Tuesday, Aug. 4, noon – 5 p.m., and Wednesday, Aug. 5, noon – 5 p.m.

BLS classes are six hours in length and will be held on these days:

  • Monday, June 1, 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, June 16, 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

Please contact Mark Stone at 503-554-2090 or mstone@georgefox.edu if these dates don’t work for your group and other times can be arranged. Classes are also open to non-George Fox-affiliated community members and can also be held at the Portland Center if scheduled with Mark.

Please keep the visitor rows free for our visitors

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

Summer is one of the biggest times of the year for visitors to campus, and security officers are noticing that our visitor rows in the Hoover, Stevens and VAC parking lots are filled with staff and student vehicles. Please do not park in these areas so there is abundant parking for our potential students coming to check out our campus.

Summer students and summer work-study students: While it is generally OK to park in the staff lots when there is room, please pay attention to the Daily Bruin announcements when we need to vacate certain lots for large events happening on campus like Genesis, summer camps and other events.
