I've really enjoyed my time here so far, I've been challenged to think outside of my comfort zones and through that I've learned a lot about myself and the areas I work in. The students and faculty are all really friendly and supportive of independent work and research.The only thing that I think needs work is communication. Biggest example being that we have great Theatre, Dance and Music departments but we lack the collaboration that would enable those departments to work together to put on a musical.
I come from Southern California, and I really expected Knox to be this utopia dream land for diversity. It really wasn't that when I got here. We have the numbers, and we're working on become more than what we are now. My advice is don't get discouraged. Knox is a great place where I have learned so much and there really is this incredible social justice spirit. I have loved the relationships I have made here with both students and the faculty/staff. Staff and faculty really care about students, so if you have an issue, take it up to someone.
