    I would say the one major thing that I tel people when they come visit is not to treat college like high school. You can't just get by and expect things to be handed to you. You really need to keep up with what going on in your classes or you will get lost and the professors will not wait for you to catch up. But, it is also like that anywhere you go for college.

    If the campus seems weird, just embrace it. You will find like-minded people here, and, as our president always says, embrace meeting people who are not like-minded. The financial aid is amazing. You will develop Knox googles and live within the Knox Bubble, so get prepared to feel a little detached from the "outside world" The academics are pretty rigorous, so come in prepared to work really hard for ten weeks. They're also really rewarding. The professors are amazing, use them as resources whenever you can. Going to a small school gives you so much opportunity for leadership, involvement, research, internships, and so much more! Take advantage of it.

    To get the most out of a first visit to Knox, I would greatly recommend that prospective students come to campus with a list of questions based on their educational and co-curricular activity interests. It is important to gather as much information as you possibly can on your campus visit, and that you become aware of the opportunities available to you if you were to choose Knox. During the visit, students should make sure to visit at least one class in order to get a feel of class size and the classroom dynamic at Knox. Additionally, prospective students should consider arranging an overnight on campus as it will give insight on the culture of college life at Knox. Further, students should also keep Admitted Students day in mind where they could possibly return to Knox's campus and meet other students considering Knox.
