We're not simply an education; we're an experience. And when you take that experience out into the so-called real world, you discover that it works for you. And for the people you're working and living with.

Four ways to describe our academic experience

1. We put our ideas to work. We give students more than $350,000 every year to conduct research and creative work. The result is that nearly all seniors graduate from Knox with tangible proof that they can effectively launch their own intellectual start-up.

2. We go deep. In our full-term immersive programs. And in our commitment to experiential learning -- a key part of our curriculum. Students find a mentor, write a proposal, and spend at least 40 hours on an experiential learning project -- an internship, a service programindependent or collaborative research.

3. We go away. Half of our students study abroad. If you want to understand the world, you have to go out and live in it.

4. We work together. Our faculty are exceptionally talented and extremely approachable; they're committed to collaborative research and ongoing mentorship.
