There are few things more valuable to college students than hearing from successful people who have been where they are now. This was the inspiration behind Knox's new Alumni in Residence series.

Throughout the year, remarkable alumni from around the world, working in a wide range of industries, return to campus for one-to-three days to offer insights and advice to help students discover their passions and launch meaningful careers.

Some residence events include:

  • Community/campus presentations
  • In class dialogue/lecture
  • Lunch-time career chats
  • Evening workshops 
  • Individual/small group office hour appointments with students
  • Morning coffee talks 

Upcoming Alumni in Residence guests:

Virtual in Residence: If you don't live close to Galesburg, no worries! We established the Virtual in Residence webex sessions for alumni who want to engage with students, but may not have the opportunity to return in person. These hour long, virtual presentations offer a convenient alternative for you to share with students how a Knox degree helped you lead a successful career.
