    There are always events happening on campus, but there is not to much to do outside of campus.

    There is a weekly jazz night at a local pub where Knox musicians perform and all kinds of students come out to just chill and listen to jazz. There is also Green Oaks, a 750-acre prairie reserve site that is owned by the school and open to students to hike, camp, or enjoy the lake!

    Our Taylor Lounge has pool tables and we also have ping pong tables for on campus fun. On the other side of the Taylor Lounge, we also have videogames for the XBOX, the PS3 and the Wii. If you're more old school, then we also have plenty of board games that you can check out. If you're not into that, the Union Board, which is a student planning organization, will have different events throughout the term, like movie showings or a casino night. In the past they have also brought comedians and performing acts. There's always something to do, it just depends on the week, really.

    Very little. Pretty much just study and hang out with friends or go to one of the several small house parties on the weekends. Not much night life compared to what I have seen.

    The surrounding area is limited as far as fun activities go, with only a movie theater, a bowling alley, and some restaurants in the area, but the campus makes up for that. There is almost always something to check out in the evening, whether it is a club meeting or a performer brought to campus. On the weekends there are registered parties sometimes, where no alcohol is allowed but students can go to dance and have a good time. There is also a group of students called Union Board, and they are in charge of bringing fun activities and performers to campus.

    Knox will only be as boring as you make it out to be (which means that if you complain about how small and uneventful the college is, then you will really only make it boring for yourself). Keeping that in mind, thereâ??s almost always something to do around campus, no matter what your interests are. There are over 100 student clubs to choose from and almost all of them sponsor some type of activity throughout the year. Even though Galesburg is a small city far away from â??urban life,â?? there are tons of things to do around here. Check out the 101 Fun Things to Do page on the Knox website to see what I mean. :)

    Galesburg is a lively town and the college is just a train ride away from Chicago. There are plenty of things to do.
