Student Traditions

Throughout the history of George Fox University, many traditions have come and gone. May Day poles have been replaced by spring dances, homecoming banquets and programs have given way to 80’s dances and football, mascot foxes have been replaced with Bruin bears. No matter the decade, George Fox University has put into place important and unique traditions in order to provide an incredible college experience for all who enter. It is these lasting and somewhat nonsensical traditions that will go with the students of George Fox and out into their lives.
