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

3 College Sophomore

Academics: Being a quarter system, it feels too rushed. For the most part the professors explain things well and want to help. Since it's such a small college, I am stressed that the classes I want will be during the same period.

4 College Senior

Academics: The Education department here at Knox is superb. From your freshman year you are out in the schools, observing classrooms and tutoring Galesburg students. Knox does not offer a specific music education major, so I have created my own double major in music and educational studies that will get my certified to teach. The Music department is close-knit and rigorous. The Music department has plenty of practice rooms and offer free private lessons to music majors and minors.
