We're one of 40 Colleges That Change Lives. Our alumni go on to change lives in organizations and communities around the world.

Things that happen after you graduate from Knox:  

1. You surprise yourself. You do work that you hadn't imagined doing four years ago -- maybe four days ago. You know how to adapt, how to change with the times. Sometimes you make things change on your own.

2. You stand for something. You find work that you believe in, that's aligned with your values. It could be in leadership, in sustainable business, in fields so new they don't yet have a name -- but it's meaningful to you, and to the people around you.  

3. You feel gratitude. Knox is on the 2014 Forbes Grateful Grads index -- a list of the top colleges in America where alumni feel that they received the greatest return on their college investment. When they look at what they've accomplished in their life, when they think about the choices they made, about the people who helped them along the way -- they think about Knox.   

Knox College's Old Main is both an historic site and a center of teaching and learning.

And life as a Knox alum wouldn't be complete without, well, other Knox alums. Our alumni community, 16,000 strong and growing, spans the nation and world. And more than 30 Knox Clubs, organized by location and affinity, allow members of the Knox community to gather together to reminisce about life at Knox, welcome new students and families to our community, meet with current faculty and students, and rekindle old flames or friendly rivalries.
