Main event, big venue
A Greek Revival beauty, Rosse Hall is a first-class, 600-seat concert and lecture hall. Projected by Kenyon's founder as one of the College's earliest buildings, Rosse Hall began life in the 1830s and since then has served a multitude of purposes, from College chapel to classroom to gymnasium. In 1999, Rosse received the addition of elegant Storer Hall, which houses the music department. Rosse Hall's front steps are home to two linked traditions cherished by Kenyon students: the Freshman Sing, in which first-year students gather after Opening Convocation to sing College songs for the first time (well, they try!); and the Senior Sing, following Commencement ceremonies, when the same students, now freshly minted graduates, return to reprise them.
