The art department itself was mostly wonderful, inclusive, and friendly when I went, though many of my favorite professors have left.
Their non-inclusive stances regarding the LGBTQ+ community and their treatment of the importance of the arts (particularly in cutting the theatre program) are issues to be aware of.
I really love the environment and the community that George Fox offers. I have felt so welcomed and appreciated here and truly believe I have many supporters who are rooting for me.
The Christ-centered education and campus life.
Not much, the food could be better.
I'm an Illustration Major at George Fox and heading into my Sophomore year. The classes that I have had for my major have been very educational and enjoyable. Because I was homeschooled up until college, I was worried that the transition would be tough. However, the environment that GFU fosters is uplifting and interested in you personally. The professors are dedicated and kind, and the art department is wonderful!
I have some dietary restrictions so canyon commons food that GFU serves didn't have a lot of options for me. Most students joke about the horrible food anyway.
I liked the community and faith-centeredness of George Fox University the most. I felt challenged in my classes, and supported by my professors in my academic endeavors and career aspirations.
While GFU is becoming a more diverse campus, it can be a struggle for students of color to navigate belonging and security, because there is not a diverse faculty or a sufficient variety of support for BIPOC students within a predominantly white institution. All that being said, the Intercultural Resource Center on campus was consistently a safe, encouraging, and nurturing space throughout my four years there and I would attribute a lot of my personal growth, feelings of belonging, and access to community to that entity.
