Welcome to Kenyon College. As Kenyon's president, I share with others here a deep sense of belonging, the feeling that we live and work in an extraordinary community. If you are a Kenyon student, professor, graduate, or parent, you know what I mean. If you are new to Kenyon, I invite you to discover the College, by exploring this Web site and by visiting campus.
Every college has its own character. Kenyon's is rooted, I think, in the way intellectual pursuits are entwined with personal relationships and rich connections. Ideas come to life at Kenyon in the context of these ties: care for one another as individuals, respect for the generations and traditions that have shaped our community, and appreciation for the village of Gambier and the rural beauty that surrounds us.
Kenyon's board of trustees and senior staff join me in wishing you a warm welcome. Together with the students and professors of the College, we take great pride in the community of learning that thrives here on Gambier Hill.
