    Join us for an overnight bus trip to Admitted Student Day. You'll have a chance to meet other admitted students from across the country and experience the power of a Knox education firsthand.

    During an Admitted Student Day, you can tour the campus, including labs and studio spaces; learn about academic programs, internship opportunities, and off-campus study; observe classes; meet your future classmates; and talk with coaches and professors. Take a look at our tentative schedules for students and parents.

    The Prairie Fire Express is a motor coach bus which departs from Chicago Union station the day prior to the Admitted Student Day event. Admitted students will be paired with current student hosts for an overnight stay in the residence halls. Hotel accommodations are provided for their accompanying parent. The bus will transport attendees to and from campus for the Admitted Student Day activities. At the conclusion of the event, the Prairie Fire Express will depart the Knox College campus and return to Chicago Union station.

    Participation is limited to selected invitees. Each participant is welcome to bring one parent.
