A Heritage to Honor, A Future to Fulfill

Dear Reader,

When we began this volume of The Student Collective this past August, many changes were on the horizon. With a new football team entering the stage, the beginnings of campus expansion, the women's basketball finishing undefeated in their regular season, the first Art Department fashion show coming to fruition, and other events demanding great memories in out minds, it was almost too perfect that the idea of heritage was out predetermined theme for the school year.

Legacy is one of those words that everyone knows, but is so elusive when it comes to life application. It's been one of those words we've thought a lot about in preparing this book for you. What are the memories we want to leave behind for those that come after us?

And not only that, but let us look back on our own heritage as the George Fox Community and our heritage as a body of believers, to learn from those before us and just be thankful and proud of the generations of people that have shaped us to become who we are today.

Our greatest hope is that this becomes a book you cherish, for within the pages are the stories of our youth, of our yesterdays, and of our days to come. These are the shaping days, and the days you will share with your children and your children's children. We hope you look back on these pages fondly, not because of anything we have done, but because these stories are yours, written and played by you.

Thank you for everything you have done to make this year awesome,

The Student Collective
