It is a small community so you get to know the majority of the school and those you don't know, you have seen around. The professors are great—the ones I've had at least—and are available through office hours, after and before class as well as through email. Knox uses the email system very wisely.

Academically, I love my school. It's great to know that if I ever need help on a specific subject, I have so many resources that I can turn to for help. I feel motivated and supported to do well in class, and I have never even skipped a class! Even on my lowest days, I still aim to do well.

Knox College is a great liberal art school that help students to success in getting their education. Knox College was generous enough to give out scholarships when MAP funds were on edge of being taken away. If it was not for Knox, I would have no idea how to get the money to pay for the tuition. Also, since the school itself is small compared to other schools, it is easy to participate and contribute to the community. Knox also have many traditional events that make college a great experience, such as the one and only Flunk Day at Knox.
