Knox College

Virtual Tour



When people think of Knox they think science.

At Knox College, studying science means immersing yourself in research. It means working alongside peers and professors as a scientist -- forming and testing hypotheses, analyzing data, and drawing conclusions, oftentimes expanding the limits of our collective knowledge.

It's not unusual for students to author original research papers, collaborate with professors on their professional research and even publish scholarly articles that are co-authored with a faculty mentor and presented at scientific conferences.

You'll have hands-on access to resources such as electron microscopes, gas chromatograph-mass spectrometers, Celestron telescopes -- and other cutting-edge computer modeling and research technology not typically available to undergraduates -- in the Umbeck Science-Mathematics Center.

Thinking about medical school? More than 85 percent of Knox students who apply to medical school are accepted -- nearly twice the national average.
