Kenyon in the News
Kenyon was mentioned in the September 26 edition of Time magazine. According to Time, the U.S. News & World Report "best colleges" guide, the granddaddy of college ratings, now has a slew of competitors. In a chart of alternative rankings, Kenyon was listed alongside Berea College as one of the "Top 10 Schools You've Never Heard Of." The list was compiled by the Students' Guide to Colleges.
The October issue of CosmoGirl! magazine mentioned Kenyon in its second annual list of the country's top fifty colleges. The magazine mentioned the Kenyon Review as the College's "claim to fame" but mistakenly stated that the literary journal is run by students. While Kenyon students do work at the Review, the journal is edited by Professor of English David Lynn and employs a professional staff. CosmoGirl! created its list using such criteria as class size, prominent female faculty, and leadership opportunities.
Professor of Psychology Michael Levine was quoted in the September 21 Columbus Dispatch in a story about the effects of college stress on eating disorders. "If you were trying to build a circumstance that increased the risk, college would be it," Levine was quoted as saying. He went on to note that college students are exposed to unlimited food in dining halls while under pressure to perform academically, socially, and sometimes athletically.
