Everyone at Knox participates, has an opinion, is honest, and passes no judgment. All these attributes make Knox a fantastic educational environment where one can truly be him or herself.

What activities do you participate in on campus?
Fencing, Tau Kappa Epsilon, and New Student Orientation leader. (see photo below)

Why did you choose Knox?
I had 10 options, but Knox put the most effort in comparison to other schools. That along with some supplemental material told me that Knox was that right one.

What would surprise your high school friends about you now?
They would be astounded at how I have grown into a respectable young gentleman.

How would you describe academic life at Knox?
Rigorous! Every class dares your reason to grow in some way.

Physics. The class bends the mind.

Which professors have been your favorites?
Dr. Konrad Hamilton. He is just like Indiana Jones but with better style!

What surprised you about Knox?
The way people do not just follow social norms but are actually distinct, sharp individuals.

What's the most important thing you've learned outside the classroom?
Keep your eyes open, your head in the sky, and your feet on the ground.

Any advice for high school students on their college search?
