Hello! My name is Alyx Farris. I'd love to talk with you about my Knox experience.

My favorite spot on campus:
WAC (Whitcomb Art Center). The sunlit rooms and spaces filled with student art makes it my favorite place on campus.

How I picked my major: 
My major connects my passion for arts and education. I picked my major based on what I enjoy studying.

Class I never expected to love:
I didn’t expect to love computer science. I took it because I had an empty slot in my schedule, and now it’s one of my minors because it was so satisfying and a different way to think about problem-solving.

My most challenging class:
Right now I’m in Black Lives Matter and it challenges my understanding of just about every single structure and institution I’m a part of.

Surprisingly cool things about Galesburg:
The food around here is really good and the variety is impressive for a small town in Illinois.

The last thing I said "yes" to:
A salmon burger at the Gizmo.
