It gave me the opportunity to explore avenues of thought that I could never have imagined.

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

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.

From a perspective of nearly half a century, I can state without hesitation that what I "love most" about Knox College is the extraordinary, dynamic, relentless tango between forces alive to reinvigorating the Knox vision and forces dedicated to maintaining its structural core. This is the dance of Dionysus and Apollo; this is the stuff of Merce Cunningham, Hanya Holm, Martha Graham, Bill T. Jones, or  “Dancing With the Stars”—as lighthearted as Rogers and Astaire, as heartrending as the flamenco of Seville.
