Reasons to attend and to not attend Knox College
- “For me, the StartUp term was a big thing. It’s geared toward design, computer science, and business, but everybody is allowed to go. They give you support and mentoring. It’s a super great learning experience.”
- “If you have test-taking anxiety. Our honor code [allows you to take tests outside of the classroom].”
- “The welcoming community and culture that Knox has.”
- “The chance Knox gives you to experience the different Elements.”
- “It’s extremely LGBT friendly, so if you’re gay look at Knox.”
- “The diversity is great. I love having a heavy international campus. I feel like I’ve learned so much for each of those people.” [About 17% of the student population are international students.]
To Not Attend
- “The political atmosphere. We’re very Democratic [student population] at Knox, but the town of Galesburg is pretty Republican.”
- “If you don’t like small schools or if you want something with more nightlife. Knox isn’t a party school at all.”
- “If you’re coming from somewhere with warm weather, it’s hard to adjust in the winter. It may have an effect on your mental health.”
- “If you’re a Trump supporter or some type of conservative, it’s not the place for you. It’s an extremely liberal school.” [See The Knox Student article, “Conservative voices quiet on campus.”]
- “It’s super small and you’ll know everyone.”
