a college where they focus on you. Because its small student population compared to big universities, you are sure to take in whatever activity you wish. For example, if you want to be part of a play, you have a higher chances of being part of the play whereas in bigger universities, only the theatre majored students are in the play.

    As a recent graduate from Knox College, while there are many priceless things that I experienced at my alma mater that I know I would not have experience anywhere else, the institution at the moment is very unstable. The increasing tension between students and administrators is evident in the recent protest/walk-out held by Knox students that addressed issues (such as racism, discrimination of class, lack of health care,etc.) that made students feel unsafe (i.e, mishandled rape cases), insecure, or even down-right attacked.

    Knox College is a small, close-knit community that includes the most diverse group of 1400 people you will ever come across. Students are diverse not only in where they come from, but also diverse in their opinions, beliefs, and experiences. Knox does a wonderful job at celebrating and supporting these differences.

    Knox is a great place for undergraduate research with great funding opportunities. It also makes study abroad work really well with your tuition payment. But the best thing about the school is the relationship between faculty/staff and students. Faculty/Staff are really here for the students, which is great.

    Knox is very loving and accepting. The school does a lot for the students and it's a incredibly tight-knit community. However, this may or may not be the right feel for an educational institution where students need to learn to grow by themselves.
