    Knox College is a great place to be, as a First Year, I never felt out of place. I pretty much had to do this whole college thing by myself. I was extremely nervous about this. I am in this program called Trio, its a program geared toward first generation college students, and my adviser has helped me so much. I am now a senior who is graduating in three years because not only did my Trio adviser help keep me on track, but my academic adviser did as well. One of the most notable things Knox has done for me was when Illinois MAP grant (a form of federal financial aid) was no longer being funded, the Knox administration decided to pay for whatever the amount was covering. I wasn't the only student who this impacted. They wanted to ensure that we were focusing on our education and not how we would be paying that years school bill.

    I have received so many opportunities that I wouldn't have been able to have elsewhere.I feel as though Knox has given me the chance to make the most of my education. I have had the opportunity to study abroad in Costa Rica, where I was able to improve my Spanish while also teaching English to children in a rural village. I have been able to do research projects where a teacher works one on one with me to help me achieve the best results. Overall, I think the amazing faculty, diverse student body, and unique opportunities gives people a "bang for their buck".

    Definitely received the most amount of scholarship from Knox! Also give a variety of options for scholarships (For instance, I am not even majoring in art, but I received an art scholarship!)

    I think this depends on how much you take advantage of. Tons of resources for research and other extras, so if you search from the beginning, you can definitely get a bang for your buck.

    Knox is expensive, but they're really good about financial aid and scholarships. They make it really easy to come here.
