There is very little(NOTHING) to do in the town and surrounding area of Galesburg, IL. The tours of the school are great and they reel you in but once there, there is no social life unless you want to do drugs which is quite prevalent on the campus - even in the dorms and right out in the quads for the staff and housing directors to see. Once you pass your freshman year - there is no additional assistance on staff for students, they are trying to push continually for new enrollment - definitely not worth the money - keep searching for a liberal arts school that has a surrounding community for students and better support on campus.

It's a very good idea to visit if you're considering attending Knox. I never realized how awful it would be to live in a city with no pulse, and a social life always involves beer and/or drugs. I'm a conscientious student, and I'm regularly left with nothing to do once I finish my homework. There really is nothing to do, besides walk into "town" and go to one of the 3 nice coffee/cafe/dessert places. It seemed quaint when I visited, but really it's quite stifling.

This school is known for giving great financial aid. Unfortunately, you get what you pay for. I was better prepared for the real world coming out of my high school than I was leaving this college. I was never challenged, stuffed with busywork, and never learned a thing. The teachers are a hit or miss - some are exceptional, some are awful. Everyone (student and faculty alike) are so afraid and so cut-throat, trying to push everyone else down, it's disgusting. Do not go here unless absolutely necessary.
