Tashi was our tour guide for the duration of our travels in Tibet, Zachary Keimig ('18) says of this photo, taken at the base camp of Mt. Qomolangma, or Mt. Everest, on his Juniors Abroad trip. Tashi and I got along really well and I'd like to think we became friends on this trip. A few of us got his email and plan to send him photos and hopefully create a line of communication as international friends! My Junior's Abroad trip was an incredible experience. I learned that this world is a little smaller than I had imagined. Photos taken at (L to R) Mt. Everest; Beijing, China; and Lhasa, Tibet by @zacharykeimig.

As much as we love these summer days, they also make us wistful for those cool autumn mornings 🍂🍁 But then again, we're excited about the beginning of classes all year round tbh.
#throwback to last semester's Finals Week festivities that kept students thriving, including a visit from the @pipsoriginal van. 🙌🍩 #doughnuts #thatsall
Honestly, without golf, I think engineering would be 10 times harder. Because my time is so limited during the season, I use it more wisely because I have to. Yes, it can be stressful, but I have a great group of friends to support me, and coach MJ emphasizes that school comes first while also holding me to my golf game. The professors here are wonderful. - Iris Kawada, class of '19, engineering major and All-American golfer ➡️ Read more about Iris and her life as a student-athlete in the latest George Fox Journal, available in print and online.

It’s the hope each student brings to the college experience. To be known by name. To be understood, valued, encouraged and uplifted. At George Fox, to be known means that professors and staff connect with students in authentic ways – personally, academically and spiritually. When this happens knowledge begins to move from the mind to the heart. Careers turn into callings. Faith turns into action. And that’s why we make this simple promise: that each student will be known.
We're working on some design concepts for a new George Fox t-shirt. What do you think? #trueblue

We're already missing the Class of 2017. Be sure to stay in touch, recent grads. We can't wait to see how God will work in your lives and what you'll do next!
OK, we're starting to get pretty excited about this! Take a look at this sneak peek of our new 40,000-square-foot student activity center, set to be completed by fall 2018.
“Looking back at my 18-year-old self, when I started at Fox, I have changed so much since then! I can recall moments over the last couple of years that I noticed my worldview broadening. I can definitely attribute that broadening to my time in, and out, of the classroom. Going to this university has encouraged me to look at life's situations from various angles and question the truths that I had previously believed. These new habits have given me the ability to be more intentionally involved in the lives of others and better understand controversial issues around me.” - Recent graduate Erika Muir (art and design) #classof2017 #georgefoxhumans
Sometimes the best part of a school day is crossing the beautiful quad to go from class to class. Explore our campus virtually at georgefox.edu/college-admissions 🌲🌲🌲
Our community is mourning the loss of longtime photography professor John Bennett, who died in an accident Tuesday morning while riding his motorcycle. Please keep John's family in your prayers. It's all about the light. John Bennett lived this phrase out far beyond the classroom, wrote 2017 graduate Corrie Mahr. He pushed, inspired, and encouraged each of us to find the light, to seek the good, to notice the beauty. He cared so well. I'm beyond thankful for his life, for the meaningful conversations, for laughter filled classes, for ice cream runs instead of finals, and for a figure who was mentor and a friend to each of his students.
🌿🌱🌳🌲🍀 Mondays around here are pretty sweet.
