Take a virtual stroll through Gambier, the place Kenyon calls home.

"If you want a cool music scene, start a band and help organize Horn Gallery concerts. If you want theater to flourish, go to the shows. Campus life is fluid, and you can meaningfully contribute to that fluidity."

  • Close to Columbus

    Ohio’s capital—and the nation’s 15th largest city—is a short (and scenic) drive from campus.

  • 1,000The number of acres Kenyon calls home, half of which is a nature preserve.

    The picturesque Kokosing River and Gap Trail run alongside campus. Take a virtual tour.
