Parent Handbook

Our Parent Handbook provides information on many of the departments and services that your student will utilize during their time at George Fox. Look at the student development/stress calendar to gain some insight into what your student may be encountering emotionally, mentally or physically each month. (2021-2022 updates coming soon!)

Parents Day of Prayer

Watch video: Parent Day of Prayer

Each year, the university's Parent Leadership Committee invites you to join us for a day devoted to prayer for the students, faculty and administration of George Fox. We welcome our families to take time during this day to pray from your home or work as you feel led.

The 2022 Collegiate Day of Prayer is Saturday, Feb. 26, 2022. We invite you to set some time aside on this day to join us! We have created this special Liturgy of Prayer page to help guide you as you pray.
