Write a ‘thank you’ note to someone who’s made a difference

Tuesday, December 11th, 2018

Is there someone at George Fox University who has made a difference in your college experience? Someone who ignited a spark that made you want to learn more than you thought you could, someone who walked alongside you during a difficult season, or a person who has been a mentor?

Take a moment to write an email, e-card, or traditional “thank you” card to that professor, RA, tutor, supervisor, or another influential person. Try to be specific as you describe how this person has contributed to your life.

Students in Newberg can stop by the ARC or Bruin Den to pick up a blank card while supplies last!
