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.

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

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

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.

Knox CollegeĀ is always at its best when it recognizes a moment of true innovation and immediately swings into action to make a dream a reality.
