We know that getting to know the people of Knox—current students, professors, coaches, and members of the staff—can be very important as you make your final college decision. That's why we invite you (and your parents) to participate in the Admitted Student Experience—live and virtual events where you can interact with us, get to know us, and envision yourself as a member of Knox's human-powered community.
Every time you attend an in-person or virtual event, you'll be entered into a drawing for one of ten $1,000 book scholarships. Attend three or more events (and let us know), and you'll receive a free Knox sweatshirt!
Are you a high school sophomore or junior or other student just beginning your college search? Visit our Knox Preview Days page.
We may not be able to offer our big admitted student events because of the pandemic, but we still invite you to come see us in person! Schedule an individual visit Monday through Saturday. Tour campus, talk with students, and learn more about Knox from the people who experience it every day.
