Kenyon will celebrate the Class of 2023 on Saturday, May 20 at 10:30 a.m. View a preliminary schedule

Traditionally Kenyon has not limited the number of attendees at any of our five annual ceremonies (Opening Convocation, Founders Day, Honors Day, Baccalaureate and Commencement). We do not plan to limit guests this year, but any changes to our health and safety precautions necessitated by the pandemic could change that.

Online registration is open through Sunday, April 30.
