Kenyon in the News
Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid Jennifer Britz was quoted in the April 3 Plain Dealer in a story about the angst high school students experience in April as colleges mail out acceptance notifications. Britz told the Plain Dealer that she eschews the "bumper sticker" mentality that forces some students and parents to shoot only for top-tier schools. "More important than where you go is how you dig in once you get there," Britz is quoted as saying. "Your success is up to you, not the institution."
The April 7 Chronicle of Higher Education included a sidebar quoting Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid Jennifer Britz. She was one of three experts invited to weigh in on the increasing gap between rich and poor colleges. "Tending to enrollment issues has to be the highest priority for institutions with limited resources," Britz is quoted as saying. "The first step has to be identifying academic distinctiveness and enhancing perceived value."
