We come to Gambier, Ohio, from every region of the country and corner of the globe to better understand our place in the world. Together, we explore questions that transcend languages, cultures and personal histories. We apply our learning to solve real-world problems, building on our insights with internships, independent research and off-campus study programs.

Go There

We offer more than 190 immersive study abroad programs across 50 countries. We also sponsor signature programs in England and Italy, and support a number of learning opportunities throughout the U.S.

Primary Sources

Part of the excitement of studying abroad is exploring the world beyond Gambier—and coming back with new knowledge and experience. Here, Kenyon students tell you first-hand about their adventures around the world. 

A Community of Diverse Perspectives

Students from 49 countries bring their points of view to a multicultural community where all of us—students, faculty, and staff—learn from a diversity of experiences and perspectives.
