The Den

If you are a parent or guardian of a current George Fox University student, The Den is for you.

This region-specific group is designed to connect you with the university and with fellow parents in your area during this unique time of life. Den meetings are usually hosted four times a year in your area. If you are interested in joining, visit one of the private Facebook groups listed below. Each of these groups allows you to connect and chat with families in that area. All requests to join Den Facebook groups will be approved after review by the hosts or the Office of Parent & Family Programs.

For more information, contact Megan Fisher, director of Parent and Family Programs, at 503-554-2112 or
