Mark your calendars! The annual KNOXFRA Dinner at Knox College will take place on Saturday, November 10, 2012. This year’s speaker is no stranger to many alumni or to East, West and Centre houses as he lived there himself from 1953 to 1957.
Don Moffat, Principal and Architect at Cannon Design, will walk attendees through a history of the Knox College building from both the eyes of a resident and an architect. He will explain the architectural significance of the building, the changes it has undergone and the stories the walls could tell. He will also share some of the highlights from his career that include the design of York and Brock Universities.
Tickets are $75 ($45 for alumni who moved out of the residence between 2007 and 2012) and can be purchased from KNOXFRA Executive members, online or by calling 416.978.6228.READ MORE
Knox College welcomed students back to its classes and residence with greetings from Principal Dorcas Gordon at Orientation Day festivities yesterday. Students and residents enjoyed a barbecue lunch together in the quad where they were able to get to know one another and also interact with representatives from their alumni associations, KEGA and KNOXFRA. Orientation activities continued through today with students attending a retreat at Crieff. The first day of class will begin on Monday, September 10.
“For almost 170 years, Knox has prepared leaders for Canadian society and beyond,” Principal Gordon told the students and residents gathered in the Chapel with Faculty and staff yesterday. “Leaders who serve the common good of Canadian society in religious communities as ministers and educators. Leaders who serve the common good of Canadian society as doctors, lawyers, teachers, engineers, etc. Leaders who embody Knox College’s ethos of service and hospitality. All of us; residents, theologs, Faculty and staff are the embodiment of that vision. And as we learn together and separately in this place may the essence of that vision direct our thoughts and our actions in the days ahead of the coming year.”READ MORE
