Why Kenyon? Besides the obvious reasons - top-notch faculty, talented students, stunning campus - the greatest advantage of choosing Kenyon is the promise that here, you’ll become the person you imagine yourself to be.
That’s because no matter what you study at Kenyon - whether it’s the nature of gravity in the universe or the meaning of the graveyard scene in Hamlet - you will grapple with important questions that challenge you in an environment that nurtures and inspires you.
But don’t take our word for it. Visit our hilltop campus and take a stroll down Middle Path, sit in on a class, talk with an admissions counselor, a student, a professor. Explore Kenyon's comprehensive financial aid packages. And, by all means, apply. It’s the first step toward discovering if Kenyon is the right place for you.
Kenyon College encourages rigorous and civil discourse in its students and community. Applicants can be assured that any discipline resulting from responsible civil action in response to school shootings in Parkland, Florida, and elsewhere will not have a negative influence on their application to Kenyon.
