Samuel Mather Hall
You begin your Kenyon career in front of "Sam Mather" at Opening Convocation. Four years later you'll walk the stage at Commencement under the watchful gaze of the Sam Mather gargoyles. Opened in 1926 and designed by Abram Garfield (the son of U.S. President James Garfield), Samuel Mather Hall originally housed the biology, chemistry, and physics departments. In 2001-02, Samuel Mather was completely renovated and currently houses the psychology department and the neuroscience program. State-of-the-art facilities allow students to engage in both independent study and collaborative work with professors in a range of fields from cognition in the elderly to behavioral pharmacology.
