4 College Freshman

Diversity: Generally the school is very progressive and liberal. There is a wide diversity of student backgrounds and it seems like everyone is accepted and celebrated for who they are.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: In the "Knox Bubble," everyone is extremely liberal. Issues related to diversity are discussed much more at Knox than they are anywhere else I have ever been, and everyone is on the same wavelength about discussing issues of prejudice to try to work past them. I feel like people who are similar tend to gravitate to each other so my personal group of friends is not as diverse as the campus as a whole, but I encounter a wide variety of people in my everyday life. The only stigma I can think of is probably against conservatives, but they are present on campus and have a club. I feel like the stigma is mostly against social conservatives because so many people at Knox are focused on human rights.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: When it comes to diversity, the majority is white. However, I do see that it is diverse, and that they are trying to make it more diverse. Since I have been here, I have met people from different cultures, and it is so interesting learning about them as well. Also, the campus has different ethnicity houses such as the international house, Casa Latina, Harambee, and Asian house, etc. Due to the multiple houses that there is, it is easy to learn about a culture and feel like a part of the community. I have not seen discrimination when it comes to race, and that is something that I really do like. The campus isn't only welcoming to diversity, but it is also welcoming people who like people from the same sex. I also think that this is another good aspect of the college. Knox to me has portrayed to me as a community who welcomes you for who you are and doesn't judge you, something that it is very difficult to find.

4 College Junior

Diversity: Campus boasts an incredible amount of diversity, especially for a small Midwestern school, and is welcoming to all students. No matter a student's race, ethnicity, nation of origin, sexual orientation, gender presentation, socioeconomic status, religious belief, political ideology, etc., there is a place for them at Knox.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: No two Knox students are alike. Not only are people racially and culturally diverse, but the range of interests and personalities on this campus is unbelievable. One of the things that I appreciate most about being here is that students are so involved on campus in so many different areas of interest. If you're an athlete at Knox, chances are you also like to write poetry or are involved in Greek Life. No one here just participates in one activity.
