Knox College is a place where, if the student so chooses, they can be creatively and intellectually challenged. Many of the professors I have encountered ask a lot of their students; courses involve a lot of reading, plenty of writing, and the room to flex creative muscle in terms of what students want to write about.

The school has many unique opportunities that cannot be found at other colleges. For instance, the political science department offers a series of courses on constitutional law in which students spend extensive amounts of time writing legal briefs on contemporaneous cases, and at the culmination of the class, they have the opportunity to present their case before a federal judge (who does not actually pass any judgment on the cases, but even so, it is an incredible experience).

It is true that Galesburg, the surrounding town, is not the most exciting place, but many of the students have transportation and can get to places where nightlife is more active. That said, the Greek life on campus is unlike that at most other colleges and universities, and many of the parties they throw are open to the entire campus, providing a much needed social life to the school. There are a few bars and restaurants frequented by students, so we are not entirely wanting when it comes to local activities.

All in all, I have to say that Knox is not for everyone. It is a small school in a small town, and for people like me, it is absolutely perfect. I can get to know professors without getting lost in a sea of students. The friends I've made make a very close-knit group, though everyone knows just about everyone else. All I can say is that I love my school.
