Congratulations on becoming part of the Kenyon College family! 

We can’t wait to welcome your student to the Hill in August. To help you get to know the College and meet some fellow Kenyon families, we’re offering a mix of in-person and virtual welcome receptions just for you, hosted by the parent and alumni volunteer leaders and members of the Kenyon Parents Council.

Students are encouraged to attend in-person events with their families, but please note the virtual sessions are intended just for parents and guardians. Your student(s) will receive all of this information, including details on student-focused virtual events from the First Year Experience Office. Please ask your student to watch their email for information soon.

For questions, please contact Robin Ball.
