    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.

    Talk with recent alums, current students, and the town of Galesburg to get a correct picture of the Knox College environment. At the moment, Knox College has a really estranged and hostile relationship with the city of Galesburg. Most students cannot walk safely at night outside of campus grounds without being attacked, harassed, etc. The growing tension between student/administration and Knox/Galesburg is creating an increasingly hostile environment for some students. Remember: staff members of Knox College are getting paid to sell Knox College to parents/students, so please seek outside voices.

    Visit the campus! This holds true for any school that you may be interested in. Visiting campus and really trying to see yourself living and learning in that school environment can tell you a lot. Also- trust your gut! You will find the right fit for you.

    100% make sure to talk to current students. They can really help you out in figuring out if Knox is the right school for you. They can tell you what they like best and what they would change/improve. They live Knox now, which you can't really get from a simple review. However, I would also really encourage that you talk to faculty. Faculty can tell you more about what they're actually teaching and what their interests are. This is especially important if you want to do research. Knowing what professor is interested in what can really help you out.

    Definitely visit campus. I did not, and I ended up transferring after my very first term because I came in not knowing what to expect. Knox is a bubble in the surrounding town. Yes, the campus is very nice and spread out and the buildings are pretty, but really evaluate whether you are comfortable being miles and miles away from any type of urban life. I'm sure this is not a problem at all for many, but personally I was a bit scared off by the simple life. I hardly ever left campus, and that wasn't something I was looking for in a college.
