On November 15, 2017, fifty AVID 9th graders from McKay visited George Fox University. They had the opportunity meet with an admissions representative, who went to GFU. They asked insightful questions about financial aid and what the community energy/atmosphere is like at George Fox. Then they met their tour guide and experienced the school for themselves. They learned about everything from dorm life, to study abroad, to engineering classes, and a campus-wide lip sync battle. Finally, our students ended their trip with an opportunity see what a college style cafeteria and common area was like. Some even sampled the food. Our kids walked away excited about what their future holds and positively impacted by their visit.
