What the students are saying about:

Knox College (6 of 10)

Knox College

Galesburg, Il isn't exactly a bustling cosmopolitan town, and the students who come to Knox College know that. The attraction of Knox is not the location, but the thriving academics, intellectual student body, and intimate class sizes. According to Levi, a sophomore, "Knox's small size makes it ideal for academics. I know nearly all of my professors pretty well. The classes are small so you get to know your fellow students. There is a great line of communication between faculty and students. It is just a great environment to work in." Jamie, a government major expands on the benefits of an education at Knox: "Knox focuses on learning for its own sake, but also has job placement and viable marketing techniques to make sure regardless of your major you have numerous opportunities upon graduation."
