3 Things to Do Right Now

  1. Fill out your housing preference form. It's on your personalized student portal, where you'll find your Knox "to do" list. Here, you'll see what items you've completed and what tasks still need to be done before you arrive at Knox. 

  2. Join the Class of 2021 Facebook Group. Meet your classmates, ask questions, and learn more about the Knox experience in this Facebook group. And be sure to follow the College on all of our social media accounts: Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Instagram, YouTube, and follow us on Snapchat at KnoxCollege1837.

  3. See when you need to arrive this fall. Orientation starts on September 7, but you will need to arrive early if you are an athlete or international student. We also offer a variety of other programs that require an earlier arrival, so check out move-in dates for fall.
