Most Helpful Review for Knox College
  • Category: Tips for prospective students
  • Review by: Kin from Chicago, IL
  • 20 out of 23 people found this review helpful

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.

    The academics push me to be a better student, and the professors genuinely want the best for me. I have made deep connections with staff, faculty, and students. The opportunities for study abroad, research, internships, and volunteering seem endless. The college doesn't want students to just sit in a classroom for 4 years, but to get into the real world and apply our learning. I highly recommend coming and visiting the school for yourselves and see the history, the classes, the environment in general.

    Knox is a school filled with many opportunities. From starting your own "start up" to researching about green chemistry. I have deeply enjoyed my time here and have been impressed by what the small town has to offer.

    Although the school is small, there is so much to do on campus. In the few hours that I was there, I didn't even come close to exploring everything. Everything was clean and well managed.

  • Jul-23-2014 I am a past student here

    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.
