4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I think the challenge with Knox is that there are only 3 months to learn a whole subject and exams come quickly as they go which can blindside you. You may have up to 2 different "midterm" exams and then a final exam maybe 2 weeks later. The professors expect a lot out of you but they also help a lot. There are a lot of tutoring opportunities from the professors and other students as well. Class sizes are small so the professor has the opportunity to know everyone well (if you don't talk to them it's not going to happen).

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: There are quite of number of students who go on to Peace Corps as well as Americorps. For those who really are goal-oriented and strive to be greater there will be nothing to stop them and Knox helps with the programs it offers with Alumni.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: We are having a lot of issues with Title IX and there are many students hoping to change it. Many female students have witnessed, experienced or know someone who has witnessed or experienced sexual assault.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Depending on your suite mates things can go very well or not. Usually when they give you a roommate through the general lottery it can be a miss and as a freshman with no one to ask to room with it is usually a hit or miss. The dorms should be updated in the fire alarm systems and there aren't any ACs in the quads. Laundry rooms in the dorms should be increased in machines because there aren't enough sometimes.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: I am in a Greek organization which is extremely popular because it allows anyone to join (Alpha Phi Omega). There is a lot of community service that happens and many members in APO are double Greek.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Our sports teams are not the best and I think it is safe to say that the Men's Soccer team is the best team Knox has. The intramurals/club sports are more popular because of this. The gym is pretty well kept so there isn't much to complain and there is a nice indoor gym and a nice track outside with a few tennis courts. The soccer field could be better.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: 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.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors are quite strict but fun at the same time. They are willing to help you either during office hours or after class. The workload is manageable but still quite pressured at a time. Overall, there are many courses being offered.

4 College Sophomore

Diversity: The school itself is full of diversity. Everyone being open-minded and accepts each other's opinion. Its rare to see college students being so open-minded.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Its not visible unless you visit one of the party dorms. Also, alcohol only available at the weekend parties.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are the best dorms I have seen, and I've visited a lot of colleges.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: When I visited the school, a student told my group that you can be in the gym while the teams are working out or practicing that is pretty great considering I work out when ever it's convenient for me.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are a lot of things that Knox could do better on, such as dining and the issue of Title IX, but overall, Knox is a welcoming school with academics that are not only challenging but diverse and aimed at diversifying one's ideas and beliefs. What makes Knox great for me are the people I have met who have become my support systems. As an out of state student, I was very much overwhelmed with the whole idea of making new friends and building a support system from scratch. The people I have met here are wonderful, quirky, individuals who, though they may seem so different from me, share many experiences, tastes, and morals as me.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Knox gives a lot of opporunities to their students which can be seen through the many emails they send out about job opportunities and internships, and advisors often recommend students to go visit the career center.

Health & Safety: There is a lot that my college can do about the health and safety of students. Although I do not fully understand the issues of Title IX at my school, I do understand that students who have been sexually assaulted have not been getting the help or justice that they deserve. Students have held many discussions and forums regarding this, but administration has yet to step up to the plate. We may rank forth in reports of sexual assaults, but that is nothing to pride ourselves over if we do not even try to handle the actual situations of sexual assault appropriately and respectfully to the victims of assault.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I enjoyed my first year at college in dorm, but it wasn't the best. The housing was usually pretty clean and rules were mostly followed, howeverI did not enjoy the people in my dorm. A few people were often too noisy and showed no consideration to other's privacy or comfort. I spent most of my first year either in my room or at a friend's place, because it would be too noisy in the common area of my dorm.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: 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.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are always there. They rarely take days off, only if it an emergency. They always make sure that everyone participates and understand the contents. The workloads they give are challenging, but they do give students some breaks when near midterms or finals. Since my cousin told me about his bad experience with his professor, I realized that not every school have professors like professors at Knox that truly want their students to learn and success.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have not applied for a part-time job or an internship. However, the career center on campus always send out emails about internships and push the students to look for what internship they want. The career center also provides mini interviews with the students to give them more experiences to handle the interviews. I have not been to the other schools but I do not think many schools like Knox have a career center that truly care about the students.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Whenever there is a suspicious activity, the students would report to the campus safety right away. Then the campus safety would send out emails about the suspicious activity after they contacted the local police. They also patrol the area to make sure things are okay. I have not feel threatened when living on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: To be honest, I have never thought that I would love to live on campus more than in my own bedroom. Although living on dorm comes with responsibility and independent, I was able to see myself handle my own schedule and get things done. It is kind of bad that I did not want to go back home because I will miss my dorm room.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: 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.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It's livable. Nothing fancy but livable

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I could care less about the greek life on campus. No one is genuine

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Knox students are very diverse in the activities they participate in. It is not that one club, sport or activity is bigger than another; however, all activities are attended and enjoyed equally
