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

Craig Choma's lighting design finals -- they're beautiful, and they're called "Dances with Light."

Karla Gasca '14

The thing I love most about Knox is the fact that you can grow into the person YOU want to be.

Martha Baumgarten '11

I love Writer's Block and Red Room Tutoring and all the other fabulous support that the Center for Teaching and Learning provides!

Stephanie Sorensen '12

I love Sunday Brunch. It seems like the whole campus is at the caf at the same time enjoying Spudos doughnuts, strawberries, and spending hours chatting and avoiding homework.  

Raluca Oprinca '12

The moral and financial support it gives you to achieve your dreams. I love traveling and languages, thus with the help of Knox, I studied abroad in Costa Rica and Argentina. I am currently in France, and I'm going to Spain afterward. I also volunteered in India and Peru and presented the research that I did in Costa Rica at a conference in Germany, which included complementary trips to France and Switzerland. What's more, I had the occasion to go with different Knox clubs to various conferences in different states in the Midwest and around the country.

Zoey Kudla '13

I love being able to participate in athletics at the collegiate level.

Eleanor Ognacevic '12

I love the awesome professors who are actually more like friends.

Eleanor Ognacevic '12

I actually do love the red squirrels.

Emma Poland '12

What I love most about Knox is knowing that, in the few short years spent here, I've found my life-long friends. And I love that during spring term, every lawn has people playing something like frisbee, campus golf, soccer, badminton, and even bocce ball.

Raluca Oprinca '12

The power some professors have to transform classes that sound extremely uninteresting into the best classes you've ever taken in your life. I'm talking specifically about Analytical Chemistry with Larry Welch, a fantastic person.

Paige Anderson '14

What I love about Knox is the fact that you can talk about any musical, and someone will sing a few bars. If you talk about some obscure movie, one of your friends will actually know what you're talking about, and if you want to discuss an idea, it's never hard to find someone else who wants to too.

Jordyn Stewart '14

The squirrels. The opportunities are pretty cool, too. And the people. The people are all quirky, but in a really fantastic Knox way that gives one the warm fuzzies. But mostly the squirrels.

Justin Steele '13

I love the Knox bubble, breakfast bagels in the Gizmo, looking at the stars from SMAC's roof, Flunk Day scares, the cool educational culture, and the freedom to flourish.

Alison Spataro '12

I especially love the old mailboxes in the mail room. I hope they never get replaced!

Erin Bell '13

I absolutely love the green springtime! Everything is budding, and everyone gets to switch into sandals and t-shirts, and there's a greater chance that we'll have class outside.

Linda Le Phan '13

I love the squirrels the most! The faculty in general is wonderful. The accepting atmosphere of the campus is also a major plus

Elisa Pascale Shields '13

The focus on the individual, especially in class. Teachers are always willing to help or just talk after class.

Annika Paulsen '12

My favorite thing about Knox is how excited and knowledgeable my professors are and how involved they are in students' lives.
