Even before traveling to Ghana with a group of Knox College students, faculty, and alumni for a two-week intensive cultural immersion course, Knox junior Martina Pezzino’s Knox experience helped her prepare for a different culture. "I'm so glad I was at Knox before I went to Ghana because I was able to connect with multiple students on campus who are from Ghana and gave me some great insight into what to expect," she said. "The diversity of Knox was definitely an asset in preparing me for a vastly different culture." Read more about Pezzino's experience.
