4 College Sophomore

Diversity: For a liberal arts school Knox is doing alright on diversity. In fact, this was one of the reasons I chose it. While I still wish it were more mixed it is miles above academically similar schools. It recruits many international students but it still lacks a large population of African-American and Latino students. It is mainly liberal and sometimes needs to open it's mind to understand the other side. Personally, I wouldn't mind more conservative voices; it would make class interesting to hear more views than my own. No matter your orientation you'll be accepted here. It could use some more folks who understand class issues and race (my high school gave me an education in poverty and race; it was poor and full of a diverse student population) but the profs do a good job of teaching that.

Diversity: This campus is very lacking in diversity in political beliefs. There is some ethnic diversity with the international students who mainly come from China and Nigeria. The diversity in economic background, race, and religion are average.

Diversity: Overall the school has very acceotable atmoshere. If you've been outcasted, this is a place for you. But I'm worried about this too-much-acceptable atmoshere. It's tired.

5 College Senior

Diversity: My group of friends couldn't be more diverse, we have lots of internationals (myself included), multicultural (2ng gen Americans from other countries), Americans, gays, bisexuals, and a know a few trans people on campus too. I have a few friends who are well off and others who came as emancipated minors and are paying their own way through college without the help of their parents. Most importantly, we don't hold any of this against one another. In fact, we celebrate and very open and free and joking with another about some of these things.

I, a gay black male, have personally never felt any kind of discrimination or prejudice towards me and I know my friends love me for me, I have lots of straight friends as well as gay, no group bands together.

Diversity: Diversity is something that Knox is very proud of and is of course something that Knox is always working on improving. Knox is 9% international students, which makes for a very rich and interesting community. Knox is certainly racially diverse but needs to (and is) find ways to continue to foster and celebrate that diversity. More than race, however, Knox is amazingly diverse in ideals, opinions, and experiences. I am constantly amazed at the life experiences and perspectives that my peers bring to the table that I have never considered. If you are looking to be challenged in your world perspectives, Knox is certainly the place for you. Ranges of sexual orientation are celebrated on campus and students feel very comfortable being open about their sexual preferences and find allies in many places.
