Knox Magazine Fall 2011 Cover

Fall 2011 kicks off the celebration of the 175th anniversary of Knox College's founding. In honor of this special anniversary, Knox Magazine asked the Knox community what it loves most about Knox. This issue highlights the 17.5 most popular responses to that question.

Meet the Trustee: Knox College alumnus Patrick Lyn '84 has worked in the financial industry for more than 20 years, is among the youngest members of the Lincoln Douglas Society, which recognizes donors who have given $100,000-$999,999 in their lifetimes, and joined the Board of Trustees in 2008.

17.5 of Our Favorite Things: On February 15, 2012, Knox College will turn 175. In celebration of this milestone, Knox Magazine asked the Knox community to share what it loves most about our prairie college. As you can guess, we received A LOT of responses. So, instead of the full list of 175 items, we decided to play with the numbers a bit ... and bring you our list of 17.5 things we love most about Knox College.

Her Way to Knox: For Teresa Amott, the way to Knox began long before February 14, 2011, the day that her election as 19th president of the College was announced. Her path to Knox can be traced back to a childhood spent abroad and an educational and professional career that she fondly calls "one big college tour."

At the Tanning Symposium: Knox alumna and renowned artist, Dorothea Tanning '32, was honored by the Knox College and Galesburg communities on Saturday, May 20, 2011, with a symposium that celebrated Tanning's work and life.

Flashback: Thanks to Roger Pearson '63, who sent us our lone response to the 1963 Senior Class Variety Show photo, "I was graduated from the institution in nineteen hundred and sixty-three."

Watering Our Roots: Robert '66 and Carol Romsa Parke '67 are providing the funding for an initiative that will help shape the way Knox College students think about ethical considerations throughout their academic careers and beyond.
