Overnight Bus Trip to Admitted Student Day

Congratulations again on your admission to Knox! You and a parent are invited to join us on April 9 & 10 for an overnight bus trip to attend Admitted Student Day. We'll cover the cost—it's free! This invitation only event includes round-trip coach transportation from Chicago Union Station, all meals, and overnight accommodations (you’ll stay on campus with a current student and your parent will stay at a hotel).

You’ll both join our Admitted Student Day event on Friday, where you'll have a chance to meet other admitted students from across the country and learn how a human-powered Knox education will prepare you for your future. We will return to Chicago Union Station on Friday evening.

Reserve your seats by Saturday, April 6! If you have any questions, contact us at
