We look forward to seeing you at new student orientation, called One Community, from September 7-10.

One Community will both welcome you to campus and introduce you to the larger Knox community as a whole. Not only will you get to know your classmates, you'll meet faculty and staff, learn about how to navigate the campus, understand how learning happens at Knox, and explore your new home of Galesburg, Illinois.

Below you will find arrival dates and orientation schedules. We will send you more details in the coming weeks, but want you to have these dates as you begin making travel arrangements for your arrival on campus.
