Admitted Student Experience

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

Visit Campus

Now that you've been admitted to Knox, we invite you to experience life as a Knox student during our next Admitted Student Day on April 7. Observe classes, meet with professors and coaches, eat with students in the cafeteria. This is an opportunity to meet your class and experience Knox!

Coming to Admitted Student Day from the Chicago area? We invite you and a parent to join us aboard the Prairie Fire Express!

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

10-Minute Tours (Live!) with Knox Students

Chat with Knox students as they take you on a real-time live virtual tour of various spaces around campus. See residence halls, dining options, athletic facilities, and academic buildings. After each 10-minute tour, stick around and talk with the students about what it's like to live and learn at Knox.
