About Our Department
At George Fox University, we’re taking a new approach to content generation and storytelling for Bruin Athletics that is helping us recruit athletes who are eager to help us pursue our vision of being the "team to beat" in Division III with the most formative athletic experience in the country.
We offer a new feature heThe GF logo and the Bruin Bear logo are the official logos for George Fox University athletics. The logos are designed to reflect the attributes of the Bruins: powerful and aggressive, suggesting movement and speed. To download the George Fox logos click here. If you are using the George Fox logo to put in live stats or on a schedule, please use the following logo.
Media credentials are required for access to all 19 varsity sports. Please request credentials 72 hours in advance of the contest. Credentials are limited by space availability, and will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis. Please contact Danny Cross or Sarah Reid with the following information:
- Sport you wish to cover
- Date of contest you wish to cover
- The media organization or department you represent
- Contact information for your assigning editor
All interviews with GFU athletes and coaches should be arranged through the Office of Sports Marketing. It is preferred that members of the media wishing to conduct phone interviews supply a number for the student-athlete to contact the reporter. Phone numbers of student-athletes will not be released without both their written and verbal consent. You must contact this office first before contacting athletes and coaches.
On-site post-game interviews should be arranged through the Sports Marketing representative of the contest you are covering. A brief period for coaches and athletes to cool down will be observed.
At George Fox, you are not just a number. You are known by name. Our professors and staff connect with students in authentic ways – personally, academically and spiritually – and opportunities abound for students to thrive in a supportive community that encourages academic rigor and spiritual growth. Our 13-to-1 student-to-faculty ratio allows for plenty of personal attention in the classroom.
