Admitted Student Experience

You're a Knoxie Now: Get to Know Us!

Welcome!

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.

We'll be adding events in the coming weeks, so be sure to check back often!

Are you a high school sophomore or junior or other student just beginning your college search? Visit our Winter Preview Days page.

Visit Campus

Now that you've been admitted to Knox, we invite you to experience life as a Knox student during one of our Admitted Student Days on February 21 and April 15. Observe classes, meet with professors and coaches, eat with students in the cafeteria. This is an opportunity to meet your class and experience Knox!

Can't make it to an Admitted Student Day? You can also schedule an individual visit Monday through Saturday. 

Tour Campus (Live!) with Knox Students
