Students display their countries flags at the annual International Fair in Ford Center for the Fine Arts.

Knox's First-Year Preceptorial Program lays the foundations for a life of intellectual discovery. By exploring the language, culture, and meaning of the liberal arts—including themes such as independent and critical thinking, respect for diverse perspectives, forms of clear expression, and intellectual and academic integrity—Preceptorial enables students to get the most out of a Knox education.

In keeping with the College's spirit of intellectual inquiry, First-Year Preceptorial introduces liberal learning through a range of ever-evolving topics, such as "Cinematic Visions," "The Challenge of Sustainability," "Creating Monsters," "The American Dream," "Love," and "Human Rights."

Preceptorial explores classic, existential questions in a broadly engaged, real-world context that transcends disciplinary boundaries. Issues are examined through reading, writing, critical analysis and, most importantly, class discussion. As a true interdisciplinary program, Preceptorial is taught by professors from all academic divisions.
