Knox College's Green Oaks Term officially is under way, and members of the Knox community are providing a first-hand description of the experience through a new blog.
Students in Green Oaks Term live and learn together at the Green Oaks Biological Field Station. They reside in Schurr Hall, sharing cooking and cleaning duties, and they share an academic curriculum with interdisciplinary classes in natural history, art, and anthropology-sociology.
Eric Ballard '11 and Zak Kahn '11 completed Green Oaks Term as students in 2010. Now, as Knox postbaccalaureate fellows and program assistants for Green Oaks Term, they will spearhead the blog. Watch for contributions from other "Oakies," too.
Take a look at the blog, and check in frequently for updates.
