Sunday, June 4—South Lawn of Old Main, 10:00 a.m.

Knox College Commencement is right around the corner, and exciting events are in store to celebrate our graduates. Commencement 2017 is on Sunday, June 4. Families are encouraged to book their accommodations early, since nearby hotels fill up fast. (Most Galesburg hotels are already full.) Bookmark this page for the latest information, as events are subject to change.

In early January, potential graduates received information about Commencement planning -- including how to order their cap & gown, where they need to check-in before finalizing graduation plans, and who to contact for questions. Be sure to read those materials thoroughly and follow the instructions.

*Please note that travel directions to campus on the day of Commencement will be altered due to construction on Main Street in Galesburg. Guests arriving in Galesburg from I-74 are encouraged to exit at Seminary Street. Follow Seminary/Kellogg to Main Street. Go West (right) on Main two blocks, then turn South (left) on Cherry Street.

Guests driving to campus from the Holiday Inn Express or the Baymont Inn will need to detour by taking Main Street to Allens Road. Turn turn South (left) on Allens, then West (right) on South Street.

Parking is available in all campus lots and in the Knox County Courthouse lot at the corner of Cherry & South Streets.
