Great Decisions: A global affairs discussion program
The Foreign Policy Association’s Great Decisions program is America’s largest discussion program centered around the most critical global issues facing our country today. Using the Great Discussions Briefing Book and video series, Fox Hill residents meet to learn and share ideas as they consider the issues shaping our nation, our world, and our future.
The Fox: A journal of arts and literature
The Fox is truly a resident-driven publication. Content — including memoirs, essays, poems, and photographs — is submitted by residents. The editorial board is also comprised of residents who curate submissions and publish the journal each quarter. With something for everyone, The Fox is truly a delight to read, and we encourage you to download the latest edition here.
