Knight’s emphasis on “ambient learning,” the process of people absorbing information from their environment, is seen throughout campus with educational displays on the walls in classrooms and hallways. The beauty of the campus is so prominent Knight was awarded the Mayor’s Cup for Civic Excellence in 2015.
