Dining Services Announcement

Dear Knox Community,

We’d like to share some news about staffing changes that Dining Services will experience as classes resume for spring term.

After recent consultation with the College regarding dining at Knox, Bon Appétit will be realigning the management team and will bring in additional oversight from within the region to assist the account in this transition and to help conduct a nationwide search for a new general manager. In addition, Bon Appétit’s senior leadership intends to invite Knox students, faculty, and staff to a series of listening sessions and focus groups this spring in order to better understand the needs of the campus community. Bon Appétit very much values the open dialogue with the Knox community and the opportunity to address the feedback the team has received.

More information will be shared in the coming weeks as plans are solidified, and we encourage your participation in the upcoming focus groups.

Free Day & Night at Peoria Riverfront Museum, March 28

On Wednesday, March 28, 10 a.m.-9 p.m. Peoria Riverfront Museum will host, with WGIL radio station, a free day at Riverfront Museum (222 SW Washington St, Peoria, IL) for all Galesburg/Knox County residents and all Knox College students, faculty and staff.

Mayor John Pritchard will be on hand to celebrate the Illinois bicentennial – especially items from Knox College, Seymour Library, Knox archives, the Freedom Center and the Galesburg area (Carl Sandburg home). These objects were all key to telling the important stories of the writers, artists, achievers and activists from our area.

The “Celebrate Illinois: 200 Years in the Land of Lincoln” exhibition remains the most comprehensive exhibit on the Illinois bicentennial, and was curated in-house by the museum curatorial staff – with excellent and much appreciated support from Owen Muelder, Knox and Seymour Library/archives staff.
