Learning at Knox
You will finalize your fall course selection when you arrive on campus in September. We urge you to take advantage of several resources this summer that will help you choose courses best suited for you this fall, like placement exams and Summer Advising Days.

One Community: Orientation 2016

One Community will both welcome you to campus and introduce you to the larger Knox community as a whole. Not only will you get to know your classmates, you'll meet faculty and staff, learn about how to navigate the campus, understand how learning happens at Knox, and explore your new home of Galesburg, Illinois.

Throughout this five-day orientation, students from around the nation and the world—students from varying cultural, religious, and economic backgrounds, students from rural communities and bustling cities—will unite as one community living and learning here in the heart of the Illinois prairie.
