We love company.

Whether you're a prospective student visiting campus for the first time, a new student arriving on campus with your family, or a visitor coming to attend one of our many engaging events or to explore our beautiful campus, welcome! We look forward to your visit to this amazing place we call home.

Getting to Knox is easy. We're a convenient drive from most Midwestern states and well-served by Amtrak with eight trains daily. Chicago, just 200 miles to the northeast, and St. Louis, 200 miles south, are major transportation hubs, with air and rail links to almost anywhere in the country and world.

And there are plenty of places to stay and things to do in Galesburg. We hope to see you soon.
