"Travel and Writing"
As part of a class project, the Exeter students from the 06-07 program developed a literary guide to Southwest England.
The Kenyon-Exeter program was established more than thirty years ago, with the first group of students attending The University of Exeter in 1975-76. The Department of English at Exeter is part of the larger School of Arts, Languages, and Literatures (SALL), which also houses the departments of Modern Languages and Literatures and Drama. Not only is The University of Exeter a well-respected academic institution, but there are also historical connections between Kenyon College and the Acland family, whose country house is located just outside of Exeter. Philander Chase, the founder of Kenyon, received funds for the establishment of the college from Sir Thomas Acland, 10th Baronet, friend of Hannah More. Students can visit Killerton House (now a National Trust property) and see a landscape largely designed during the lifetime of Sir Thomas Acland (early nineteenth century).
