Phase II is here again

Friday, April 24th, 2015

At the end of every school year many students have good reusable items that they do not want to take home over the summer. These items often include blankets, clothing, kitchen supplies, small appliances, radios, room decorations, furniture, etc. In an effort to keep the dumpsters from over flowing and to be better stewards of the resources, Phase II was initiated.  We are happy to receive reusable items that students do not want to take home starting on April 24th and going through May 3rd at 4 pm.

The items gathered are sorted and made available to summer students and staff, with the remainder of the items being given to different organizations in the local area, such as: Rescue Mission, Unwed Mothers Homes, Love Inc., or Goodwill.

Barrels will be placed in the following locations:

  • The dorm lobbies of Edwards, Pennington, Le Shana, Coffin, Hobson, Macy and Sutton.
  • On the porches or patios of Weesner, Riley, Chapman, Hoskins, Armstrong, Campbell, Fulton St., Villa Rd.,
    North St., Gail, Kershner, Barclay and Wilder Houses.
  • Outside of the first floor of Beebe, Carey and Willcuts.
  • Near Woolman 2-3, Winters 201-2 and Newlin apartments.
  • Lewis and Weesner Village laundry rooms.

Please do not place the following into the barrels:

  • Undergarments and socks
  • Large appliances or furniture
  • Food or chemicals (Place these items in a box next to the barrels)

There are large drop boxess for your trash located strategically around campus. By law, computers and TVs cannot go into the trash. Please place them beside the barrels with a note if it is broken.

Have a great summer and may the Lord bless you as you go!

Cars left on campus

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

The campus will be a beehive of construction as soon as school finishes, and as many parking lots and curbs as possible will be re-striped/painted this summer. Therefore, we need as few cars as possible being left on campus.

If you are going on a Juniors Abroad trip, Summer Serve trip, or are an international student, we would love for you to find a friend living off campus to leave your car with so that it can be checked on.

If that doesn’t pan out, please come to Security with your car keys, and we will tell you where to park your car. George Fox is not responsible for anything that might happen to your car if it is left on campus. Any car that is left on campus without the keys being left with Security will be considered as abandoned and will be towed at your expense. If you are here for May Term or working on campus during the summer, please pay attention to the Daily Bruin announcements as lots will be closed periodically for construction and painting all summer.

Questions? Please call Security at 503-554-2090. Thank you in advance for your cooperation so Plant Services can work unhindered this summer!

Please take your bike home

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

Security has noticed a lot of abandoned bikes left on campus bike racks, and they are very tempting to potential thieves. If you are not staying on campus over the summer, please take your bike home!
