New Student Orientation (September 8-11)

Hi, new students!

Through our New Student Orientation, we welcome you to campus and introduce you to our larger Knox community. By the end of that week, we hope you've had the chance to:

  • meet future classmates, faculty, and staff
  • learn how to navigate the campus
  • understand how learning happens at Knox
  • explore the city of Galesburg

The complete schedule of events for new student orientation are now available on Guidebook. If you haven't already, take a moment to download the Fall 2022 Orientation App. It has lots of great info and it is super easy to use (viewing on a phone or tablet provides the most enhanced experience):
