Our annual programs include:

New Student Orientation

In addition to our annual Pumphandle tradition, new student orientation includes special components for international students, multicultural students, non-traditional students, families, and fall athletes.

Family and Friends Weekend

This special weekend is filled with fun and activities for your family and friends. They'll have the chance to attend classes, enjoy live jazz, visit Green Oaks, and more.


Join Knox alumni, families, and friends during Homecoming week each fall. Tug of war, Paint the Town Purple, bingo, a talent show, and bonfire are just a few of the student activities that take place each year.


As a tribute to the senior class, be sure to join the entire Knox community for Senior Pumphandle and the Senior Challenge Results and Toast. A faculty luncheon, reception, prayer service, and other events also are scheduled for seniors and families.
