Molly Roloff visited George Fox University
Molly Roloff has begun touring colleges and universities. In September, Molly will start her junior year of high school.
Little People, Big World viewers will remember Jeremy and Zach going on tours of several colleges in their senior year of high school, before eventually enrolling at PCC.
Molly visited George Fox University, which is a Christian university in Newberg, Oregon.
George Fox representatives say Molly is visiting several schools and it will be apart of a future episode.
The article states George Fox students have seen other Roloffs on campus last year. One of the friends sometimes seen on the show (Brendan) is at George Fox as well as a few other of their former Faith Bible classmates. The article also mentions that students say Roloffs have been spotted at a camp that is part of the George Fox ministry.
We also heard from people at George Fox last year at different times that said both Jeremy and Zach had visited their friends. Jeremy was also seen visiting friends at Oregon State and Zach and Jeremy at Portland State University, again visiting friends.

'Little People, Big World' stars visit GFU
Reality TV — Molly Roloff considering George Fox for fall 2012

"George Fox University had a visit last week from a group with a big reputation, though mostly small statures.
Members of the Roloff family, stars of the TLC reality television show “Little People, Big World,” toured the school July 30 and met with admissions counselors.
The show, based on the family’s farm in North Plains, features Matt and Amy Roloff and their four children, 20-year-old fraternal twins Zach and Jeremy, Molly, 16, and Jacob, 13. Matt, Amy and Zach are little people, just a few inches taller than 4 feet, while the other three children are at least average height.
Amy, Zach and Molly Roloff visited George Fox with a television crew last week as Molly narrowed down the schools she is considering for the future “(She) is considering George Fox, not for next year, but for a future year,” said Ryan Dougherty, GFU director of undergraduate admissions.
Molly is entering her junior year at Faith Bible Christian School.
Dougherty said Molly hasn’t decided yet what school to attend and was touring several schools, which will likely appear in an episode about four months from now.
“We’re just working with (her) like any other student,” he said. “We get a lot of students who come through and don’t end up going here.”
Although Dougherty said last week’s visit was GFU’s “first encounter” with the Roloffs, it wasn’t necessarily their first time on the campus. Students reported seeing one of the Roloffs, possibly Zach, on campus at the end of the last school year. Zach and Jeremy both attended Portland Community College last year, but one of their high school friends, Brendon Johnson, is a student at George Fox.
Members of the Roloff family have also been spotted in recent years at Camp Tilikum, a ministry of GFU."
