A page like this is a pretty tall order, so I think that if we're going to do this right we should come to some sort of consensus on how to tackle it. What do we want this page to be, and how should we organize it? Is it a set of links to important pages and outside websites? Is it substantial new content about The Knox Experience? Should it sort of be a student rendition of the New Faculty Survival Guide? Do we want to be comprehensive, or do we just want to cover the holes that Orientation leaves?

Well, I went ahead and took a crack at it. I tried to be fairly thorough, but if you see something I missed, let me know. This is only part of it; I'm still writing the rest, whcih will include information on the staff/administration, Galesburg, eating, picking classes, student government, publications and radio, Campus Safety, Clubs, campus employment, the Honor Board/Conduct Council/Grievance Panel, transportation, and maybe some other things I haven't thought of yet.

Jesus tittyfuckin' Christ, man, nicely done. Jlane 23:06, 1 August 2007 (CDT)

Brian, did you write all of that yourself? jeez. well done.--Afitz 21:55, 4 August 2007 (CDT)


Yeah, everyone (especially Brian, the official king of The Wiki Fire), this page rocks hard. It covers so many vital parts of the Knox experience and summarizes them in a way that captures both the important information and the attitude of the campus.

What it needs now is art. Maps are the most important thing. However, we may have to resort to hand-drawn maps unless we can find a street map of Galesburg that belongs to the public domain (I'll try my best). Hand-drawn maps are funny, anyway and work just fine. Any other art you can think of would also help this page out immensely. Maybe even something like fancy section heads or something. So, yeah. Good job on this Brian (and everyone else that helped out). Now let's try to get some art going. Tfooq 13:00, 11 August 2007 (CDT)

Breaking it up[edit]

So, what do you all think about dividing this guide into several pages? It might be a little long for the Internet, especially once we get art (which we need). What would be the best way to do it? Should we just make each section a new page, and use the main survival guide page as kind of a portal page? Any other ideas? Tfooq 12:43, 14 August 2007 (CDT)

ATP =[edit]

Well, ATP would seem not to want to be branded the female snu. I think that it is reasonable to state that they were originally so, but perhaps not to assert that such strong social ties remain. That leaves a rather scant definition of them though, eh? Also, I see no real need to break anything up. There's something impressive about such a single large comprehensive page.

It amuses me to no end how almost every Greek group has taken to primping up their image on this page and elsewhere. Everybody's going to know the dirty secrets anyway. Camozzi 17:11, 1 September 2007 (CDT)

Add pandeminc information[edit]

I wrote this out to be added to this page for pandemic stuff, but I'm not an admin so I can't edit. I will leave this here in hopes it will be added.
