    Our event programming board almost always has some sort of event going on each weekend like a comedian, musician, movie night, or excursion somewhere off campus. Most events are free to students. There are registered parties throughout the term that students go to, and Galesburg also has various shops, restaurants, and events that students visit.

    Downtown Galesburg is a really quick walk from us. We have tons of locally owned small cafes, Chinese food, and pizza. My favorite part is all the antique stores, there's nothing more entertaining to me than going down to the Antique mall every weekend when I'm bored or need a study break.

    Galesburg is a small town, however there are plenty of things to do off campus if you're not already busy on campus. There are tons of local food places you can go to to try new foods and flavors. There is a week day deal at some local restaurant everyday. Union Board also has an event they host almost every weekend.

    Go to the biological field Knox has set up for students to canoe or hike. Go to the center of town and try out all the cafes. Go and explore Chicago.

    Again, if you keep your mind open to new things there is literally always something to do on campus that some club is sponsoring. It could be a talk, a play, some philanthropic event, or just a party, but there is always something.

    There is always something going on at Knox. There are so many clubs and people planning events that there is always something to do. Fraternities have registered parties, without alcohol so you can go and dance with your friends. Clubs and sororities put on food nights where you can pay money to eat food late at night, and all the money goes to a good cause. On Thursdays Fat Fish pub in Galesbrug hosts Jazz Night, which is a lot of fun. There are concerts and plays and readings all the time. The student activities group, the Union Board, plans events for every term that are always a lot of fun. They bring in comedians and movies and they bring students to ice skate and to go to museums or other places. Everything is cheap in Galesburg, so that's a major plus. There's bowling and ice skating and a movie theater as well.

    After becoming familiar with your fellow peers during Admitted Students day and orientation week, friendships quickly develop. There is almost always something going on at Knox and each week Campus Life sends out an email of campus events. There are events for students of all interests.

    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!
