You will either love this college or hatePsychology
You will either love this college or hate it. There are few neutrals. Visiting is essential.
- Small school (means lots of 1-on-1 attention in the classroom, but also means everyone knows everyone's business).

- Politically *very* liberal school.
- Rural. Gorgeous in the fall! No traffic. Easy parking.
- Lots of people smoking pot.
- Most people vegetarian or vegan. Cafeteria caters to this and has many dishes that are tasty that don't include meat.

- Lots of "unique" characters. If you were kind of weird in high school (or very weird...) you'll fit in well here.

- Professors do care, but you have to self advocate. They do play favorites (which rocks if you're a favorite).

- Security staff are a bunch of really awesome people (there's one power-trippy bad egg, but the rest of the guys are great). - Be careful about the athletic department director. Especially if you are female.

There is very little(NOTHING) to do in theQuite BrightArt & Design Department
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 ifQuite BrightUndecided
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.
