Why Kenyon? Besides the obvious reasons — top-notch faculty, talented students, stunning campus — the greatest advantage of choosing Kenyon is the promise that here, you’ll become the person you imagine yourself to be.
That’s because no matter what you study at Kenyon — whether it’s the nature of gravity in the universe or the meaning of the graveyard scene in "Hamlet" — you will grapple with important questions that challenge you in an environment that nurtures and inspires you.
But don’t take our word for it. Take a virtual stroll down Middle Path and talk with an admissions counselor, a student, a professor. Explore Kenyon's comprehensive financial aid packages. And, by all means, apply. It’s the first step toward discovering if Kenyon is the right place for you.
