Welcome to the Knox community! Throughout orientation, students from around the nation and world—from varying cultural, religious, and economic backgrounds, rural communities, and bustling cities—unite as one community, living and learning here in the heart of the Illinois prairie.

We look forward to your arrival this fall! One Community: Orientation 2017 will 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 also meet faculty and staff, learn how to navigate the campus, understand how learning happens at Knox, and explore your new home of Galesburg, Illinois.

New Students will move in on Thursday, September 7 between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. Students should arrive at Ford Center for the Fine Arts (CFA) to pick up their folder and their residence hall keys before proceeding to the residence hall.
