Like so many others, my favorite things about Knox, and the first things I think of--Old Main and the Lincoln-Douglas debate held there, the brick sidewalks, watching the cricketers out on the lawn, falling asleep everywhere in Seymour Library (oh, and studying and working too), Studio lobby and so many acting classes there, the professors who taught me how to think critically and the friends who continue to help me laugh--every day, I am glad that I went to Knox.

I loved having a carol at the end of a row in the stacks in Seymour Library. It felt cozy.

I love the cozy feeling of the campus -- that the farthest walk to class is barely five minutes.

I love the ginkgo trees and buckeyes in autumn; I know that if my life went to hell in a handbasket tomorrow and I needed a safe place to come and be supported, Knox would be that place.

The campus community itself -- the fact that Knox is small enough that eventually you can meet almost everyone, and strike up a conversation with almost anyone.

My favorite is that any time of year, whenever I’m in the area, I can stop by the campus, walk through, and feel quite at home, even after 30 some years. I've walked through Old Main on a hot July Sunday when no one else seemed to be on the campus and walked through the Quads in a snowstorm. Even though there are physical changes (the absence of balconies in the Quads in particular), there's an appealing timelessness to our campus.
