Knox was my family away from home. For four years, I was part of the family as an employee, and, as an alum of more than 45 years, it is still my family. It was an emotional experience and still is today. I love Knox for all it gave me and for allowing me to be a part of that family.
I love the friendliness of the people at Knox. From our first visit on a cold Martin Luther King Jr. holiday . . . to my son's Admitted Student Day . . . to bringing him to school, taking him home, Parent's Weekend, or other visits . . . everyone we come in contact with is smiling at us, offering a friendly hello, making us feel welcome. It's a good feeling. And by everyone, I mean everyone: students, Admissions staff/volunteers, Roger and Anne Taylor, professor/teachers, other employees. EVERYONE!

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.

I love the wonderful lifelong friendships I made there. The warmth of the Knox Family, the spirit of community involvement, and the truly due process democracy that governed the College resonated in me. The Knox family values provided me an opening to form meaningful relationships.
