How a Kenyon education helped
The College's intimate environment offered personalized attention and uncommon undergraduate research opportunities. "I developed research skills I needed for my career, and the math classes made me comfortable analyzing data, another big part of my job."
"I met a trustee who had a top position at T. Rowe Price, and he helped me find an internship."
Seeking to attend a small, private college in the United States, Chen learned about Kenyon and applied online. Reality added to her virtual encounter when she interviewed with Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid Jennifer Delahunty, who was on a recruiting tour in Hong Kong. "She really liked me, so I guess you could say Kenyon chose me."
