Being an Extern Host involves giving a Kenyon student a 3-5 day look at your occupation.
Externs benefit from observing, asking questions, and talking with your colleagues.
Each host is encouraged to arrange the extern's week in a way that is appropriate for their occupational interest.
The benefits to the student are personal. There is no pay and no College credit involved.
Students are responsible for their own transportation, housing, and meals while they are externs. Students who wish to be externs in a city away from home may arrange to have housing for the week through the Parents Association's Bed and Breakfast Program.
Kenyon students are covered by health and accident insurance. The sponsor's organization assumes no responsibility.
Past hosts have enjoyed the experience:
"It was a delight to expose an undergraduate to a field that I find exciting on a day-to-day basis."
"It's a rewarding experience to know that I am helping someone else identify what they would like to do with their life."
