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

The Knox class I never expected to love:
Medicine and Literature. I literally took this class by accident and was the only theatre person in there. It was really amazing to see how everyone approached the material and what they learned from it.  

My most challenging Knox experience:
I am working on an Honors project about the play Death of a Salesman. I need to hold myself accountable for all the work, and it's very hard forcing myself to do it. I procrastinate A LOT.

The best thing I've done since coming to Knox:
Had all-night conversations with people I suspect will be lifelong friends.

One surprisingly cool thing about Galesburg:
We've got REALLY good restaurants here. 

Connect with me to ask any questions you may have about life at Knox, classes and professors, and living in Galesburg, Illinois. And don't forget to follow Knox on Snapchat and Instagram to see a typical day in the life of a Knox student—maybe even mine! 

Meet other Knox students!
