Invitation still open to participate in tomorrow’s parade

Thursday, July 28th, 2016

If you’ve ever wanted to be in a parade, this is your opportunity! George Fox has been asked to provide the grand marshal for this summer’s Newberg Old Fashioned Festival Parade, scheduled for tomorrow (Saturday) from 9 to 11 a.m.

It’s the start of our 125th year, and we want to recognize the people who have helped us get this far … our employees and students. This is your invitation to be one of the grand marshals for the parade.

We’re assembling a group of employees, students, parents and alumni to walk and hand out candy. It’ll probably take less than 20 minutes of walking. Some spots will be available for riding and waving. We’ll also have the Bruin bus, Professor Ed Higgins’ 1934 Ford flatbed truck, the Bruin bear (“Pennington”) and the Victory Bell.

Feel free to join us. We’ll meet at Newberg’s Renne Field (Blaine and 6th) at 9 a.m. We may even have some free T-shirts still available. Click this link for more info.

July 31 is last day to request off-campus housing

Wednesday, July 27th, 2016

July 31 is the last day eligible students can opt to live off campus. Opting to live off campus after this point will result in a $75 housing change late fee. Students who chose to move off campus (commute from home or otherwise) after the third week of the semester will not be eligible for a refund of housing charges and will be responsible for the full cost of the semester housing fees.

If you are planning to opt to live off campus, please pay attention to these deadlines and avoid any unnecessary charges!

For more information, please email housing@georgefox.edu.

Traditional undergraduate students: Are you intentionally registered outside of the “block” for fall semester? (The “block” is 12 to 18 credits.) Please let student accounts know how many credits you will be taking so your estimated charges can be updated.

Insurance Waiver Reminder!

Tuesday, July 26th, 2016

If you have been charged for health insurance and already have coverage, please go to university forms in MyGFU to complete your insurance waiver. Once finished, your charges will generally be updated within 24 hours.

If 24 hours has passed and you are still being charged, it is possible you did not complete the form fully. If you left any of the fields blank, your form will not be processed. A common mistake is to not furnish the address for your insurance policy.

To correct a previously submitted form you must go again to the University Forms area, but this time you need to select the completed form at the bottom (it doesn’t look like a hyperlink, but it is one!). Then simply reopen the form you submitted previously and add the needed information. Twenty-four hours later, your charges should be updated.

For additional help or information about insurance, email Molly Hickok at mhickok@georgefox.edu.
