Bruin Preview The Ultimate George Fox Visit Experience

Of all our visit options, Bruin Preview offers the most in terms of showing you what makes Fox such a special place:

Meet professors, coaches and current students; attend classes that look interesting to you; and learn about our majors.

To get an insider's glimpse of campus life, you can eat meals with current students in our dining hall, attend chapel, and attend exclusive sessions only hosted during Bruin Preview! We also host department showcases, where you can meet professors in the major you're interested in, see how our professors care for their students, and tour department facilities.

Learn about our financial aid and admissions processes, meet with your admissions counselor, and hear about opportunities outside the classroom. Oh, and did we mention all prospective students will get a George Fox T-Shirt?

Come with plenty of questions, an appetite, and most importantly, a desire to kick back and have fun!
