Three ways to describe a Knox education:

1. It's rooted in a singular intellectual community.

We come from all walks of life, from all parts of the globe, bringing radically different stories and experiences and ideas to a handsome campus in Western Illinois. Our talented faculty—97% hold terminal degrees in their field—are committed to your education, beginning with First-Year Preceptorial. Our students come from 48 states and 51 countries, making Knox more diverse in more ways than nearly any college campus in the country. We're exceptionally active, effective, and engaged in the world.

2. It's an experience. 

A Knox education is not something you sit and watch—it's something you do. Our students test their knowledge by applying theory to practice both in and out of the classroom. That can take the form of advanced research and creative work, internships, off-campus (sometimes way off-campus) programs, community service, or some combination of your own devising. We help make these experiences possible with a $2,000 Power of Experience Grant available to all incoming students during their junior and senior years.

3. It has power. 

Our students take the knowledge they gain in the classroom and apply it to real-world experiences. And these experiences, combined with opportunities to live and learn with students from different backgrounds and to develop leadership skills in clubs and organizations, all empower graduates to find success after Knox. They run Fortune 500 companies and grassroots nonprofits, they conduct major research at sites around the world, they found startups and music festivals, they see a human need and they meet it.
