Knox College Grows

From WGIL radio:

The Knox College campus has a few more students this year than normal.

The entering freshman class is 407, the second largest in 40 years at the liberal arts college in Galesburg.

Peter Marquardt, from Clarendon Hills, is one of those freshman. He tells WGIL, the move in week is a little hectic.

“I’m a little overwhelmed. I gotta say goodbye to the parents that have been nuturing me for 18 years. That’s the only thing, other than that I am ready to go.”
