The chemistry department is very strong and there are several equipment available at Knox which shouldn't considering the size of the school. The professors are friendly and supportive.

Academics here at Knox are awesome. I love all of the professors in my major and always enjoy my classes here. They care very much about their students and the subjects that they are teaching. At Knox, you will get to know your professors very well. I've been to my Latin professor's house twice, once to help her cook! The majority of classes here revolve around discussion which keeps them engaging and interesting. You will never have a "pointless" class here.

A tradition of free inquiry, independent thought, and diverse perspectives; Knox is one of the most diverse colleges in the nation, enrolling 1,400 students from 48 states and 46 countries, 7% come from overseas and 18% are students of color from the U.S. Our curriculum allows students to develop their own educational plan choosing from over 50 majors and minors and applying their education through study abroad, internships, and undergraduate research. In fact, 83% of Knox students complete complete an independent study, research, or creative project in addition to learning from accomplished scholar-teachers who encourage them to explore ideas and places, stretch their intellect and their talents, blend thought with action, and fuse imagination with initiative.

My experience at Knox was everything I could have hoped for. Academically, I appreciated the direct engagement of our professors and the diverse perspective of my classmates. I was exposed to a lot of new ideas and, as a result, had my identity and ideas challenged in a way I didn't expect. It was at times tough but ultimately a really good thing. I was lucky enough to be able to compete in several sports but fell in love with the tradition that is Knox College Club Lacrosse. I really enjoyed being able to help run the club and enjoyed that we were able to compete with and sometimes even beat some bigger Division I schools. After growing up abroad, I greatly appreciated being back in an environment where diversity was deeply respected. As was the case for most Knox students, I made many friends for life, several of whom are now family. Lastly, I was fortunate to share my college experience with my younger brother, who also went to Knox.
Besides truly getting a world-class education, which I realize more and more every day, Knox empowered and equipped me to pursue my dreams. When I came to Knox and said I wanted to combine my passions of Africa and technology (not exactly a hot topic 10 years ago), Knox responded by saying, "Ok, that's not crazy. Let's help you get there." As a result, I was encouraged to double major in computer science and integrated international studies and turn the research I started during my study abroad program in Zimbabwe into an Honor's project. The Honors Program at Knox is incredible. Not only are you allowed the time to dive into a topic, but you are given real resources including an office and funding for research as well. In bringing in an outside examiner for my Honor's defense, Knox in effect told me that my ideas are important. For an undergraduate student about to begin his career, this was extremely empowering. When your professors and friends from Knox believe in you, it's a lot easier to believe in yourself.

One of the things which Knox champions in its pamphlets and brochures are "professor scholars"-- professors who continue to produce work in their chosen fields, rather than simply teaching. Not only does every teacher have experience, but all of them have vastly differing experiences-- experiences which they are willing to share. Professors at Knox excel at teaching above and beyond the classroom-- they teach students not only skills that they can use at Knox, but skills that they can use for the rest of their lives.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
