TKS Asks Homecoming Edition: What is your greatest memory from your time at Knox?


“Meeting new friends. We’ve been friends now for 48 years! There’s a group of us here that’s been friends for that long. We’re going on vacation together next week!” – Chris Allison ‘78 Barbara Baker ‘78 (Erika Riley/TKS)

“The one that pops into my head right away is meeting my husband. It was after our first date— we were walking around, I lived in the quads and he actually stepped on a dead bird! It’s really silly but I always think about that.”
Katie Koca Polite ‘02
“The first Flunk Day was … the most memorable day. I’d like to say something academic, but no, I got woken up at 6 a.m. and started drinking.”
Megan Bartholomey ‘03 (Erika Riley/TKS)

“When my son came to Knox. He was class of ‘02 so I reconnected with a lot of friends here. It brought home how much Knox impacted my life.”
