I love the diversity here. Knox is a place that will open your eyes to the world in one setting. It's impossible not to become an open minded person after just one term of attended Knox. The campus and beautiful and people are beyond friendly, not to mention the 100% dedicated professors!
Review Your College
Great place love it! Board is to expensive to taste only okay. Parties are nice, there is something every weekend and a scene for everyone. Ranging from small close friend group parties to larger ones where a lot of people come.
Knox College is a wonderful place for people to really find themselves in a community of close-knit people. From day one you find people you can connect with and activities that interest you. Even though the school may be small, you are a somebody to not only your peers but the professors and staff as well. You are able to create a personal connection with your instructors who are very knowledged in the subject area. No matter where you go at Knox, as long as you put yourself out there, you will find something for you.
