Academically speaking, Knox is a place where yourQuite BrightEnglish
Academically speaking, Knox is a place where your success as a student is predicated on the effort that you put in. There are so many resources at your disposal as a student, from peer-to-peer tutoring to accessible professors and office hours, and an incredibly helpful Career Center, there's little excuse for not taking advantage of your full tuition money.

Slack on the readings for class? Expect to have a much tougher time getting an 'A'. Put in the work outside of class? Your professors will notice.More generally, Knox is a place where you can get a great education and discover what you want to do with your life while having a good time as well. The majority of students and faculty don't take themselves too seriously and recognize that students come to college for more than just academics (see: Flunk Day).

Knox is an amazing place.Quite BrightEnglish
Knox is an amazing place. It is not for everyone, but for the people who call it home, it IS home. I'm a Creative Writing major, and the English department is just absolutely beyond belief. The professors are incredible, intelligent, engaging, and so helpful and kind. They really care about your well-being and your growth as a student. I love it here. Sometimes I do wish I went to a bigger school, but Knox really has more to offer than any larger school could. You have a lot of individual attention and access to a lot of things that become competitive when at a larger school. Things are also cheaper in Galesburg, which is a plus.
