Swing Dancing the Night Away

Dan Kephart, me (Tracy Berg), Sarah Roberts and Spencer Eager after dancing the night away.

There are a lot of perks to being a part of a small college. For example, at George Fox we only have one cafeteria, and that fits everyone just fine.

When you have a fairly small student body (1,800 undergrad students), your whole school can attend the same dance. Freshman and seniors, blowing up the same dance floor. Gotta love it!

At the beginning of every school year, the student body lines up hours in advance to get a free t-shirt on their way into the 80s dance. There’s also an 80s fashion show in the middle of this dance, which happens in Edwards-Holmann Science Center.

Just before winter break this year, we had a swing dance at the Portland Convention Center. A girlfriend and I shanghaied two of our guy friends into going with us, and the four of us had a blast! We weren’t able to make it to the swing dance instruction lesson on Friday night, but we tore up the dance floor Saturday night nonetheless.

Friends who will make fools of themselves trying to swing dance, and who will get lost leaving Portland with you – those are the friends that are worth keeping. And those are my friends from George Fox.


Tracy Berg Birthday: April 23rd, 1991 From Corvallis, Oregon Sophomore – Management major Favorite place in Newberg – Bald Peak Park I chose to come to George Fox because after I visited the school my junior year of high school, every time I'd say the word college, I just pictured myself walking across the quad here. It just felt right. Fun fact: Only item on my bucket list is to visit all 7 continents. So far I’ve been to Africa and Europe, besides the United States.
