Welcome to Kenyon College where global minds meet. Founded in 1824, Kenyon is one of the United States' finest liberal arts colleges. We bring together a diverse group of students and professors from across all 50 states and more than 40 different countries. Our curriculum, rooted in the traditional liberal arts and sciences, is enriched by interdisciplinary programs that emphasize global understanding. We set high academic standards and look for talented students who love learning and seek further knowledge of different cultures. Small classes, dedicated teachers, and open minds define our academic philosophy. Kenyon welcomes curiosity, creativity, intellectual ambition, and innovative ideas. We view learning as a challenging and profoundly rewarding experience that is best fulfilled when shared in the company of friends.
