A virtual welcome to Knox: A birds-eye view of the Knox campus from the South Lawn, where paths criss-cross connecting CFA with Seymour Library and Alumni Hall

Join us tonight for a virtual Knox welcome, featuring faculty, student, and staff awards, the introduction of new faculty, remarks from President Teresa Amott, Provost and Dean of the College Mike Schneider, and Vice President for Student Development Anne Ehrlich, plus a keynote address from Randell Strickland ’90.

Watch Opening Convocation at 7 p.m. CDT
