Kenyon College Reviews
Review Kenyon College
I attended Kenyon College for a year and a half before transferring to a school in Boston. I loved everything about the school and was thrilled when I decided to go. I made wonderful friends and had great professors. However, the school is under investigation for mishandling of Title IX policies. This is a fact that should not be ignored when applying to colleges. Yes, sexual misconduct happens every and anywhere, but there is a larger systemic issue currently in Gambier. Of course, you can make the most of it, but living in the middle of nowhere Ohio is very isolating, and most students spend most or all of their time on campus. The campus truly is beautiful, though!
Kenyon is incredible. It's unlike any other college. I went into Kenyon skeptical. It's tiny and in the middle of nowhere. What could there be to do? I was worried that the party scene would be lame and that I wouldn't find other people like me on such a small campus. I was so wrong. Everyone has a place at Kenyon. I found an amazing group of friends and I get to be my authentic self on this campus. I can be a total nerd in Olin (that's our library) throughout the week and have lots of fun with my best friends on the weekend. I feel like at any other school I'd have to pick a role like party girl or nerdy girl or art girl, but at Kenyon you can be everything you are and people will think it's totally cool that you're all those things. I know "lax bro's" who love art. I know fraternity brothers who geek out for history. Everyone is three-dimensional at Kenyon. We don't fit in the boxes we'd be placed in at other schools. Come to the 'Bier (that's Gambier) and check it out!
Kenyon's best and worst quality is that it's a small and isolated ecosystem, which allowed me to seek quiet, reflect inwardly, and learn about myself. Of course, it's also a place with its own brand of comfortable homogeneity, where change is frustratingly slow. I had unforgettable conversations about how to improve the world with students and faculty, but action was often less forthcoming. Because of that I now know it's a place I need to move on from, but I'm thankful for the significant amount I learned at Kenyon and the tight community it made me a part of.
