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.

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.

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 like the generosity of the people who work here: by bringing a meal to a new family, a Knox member who is having surgery, grieving the loss of a loved one, etc.
