After Kenyon College
- Very Good116
Kenyon, unfortunately, is pretty homogenous in certain areas. The student body is gradually becoming more diverse, but very slowly. Overall, most students are white, upper middle class, and from the East or West coast (not a huge amount of Midwesterners.) Some students can be kind of snobby towards locals. The campus is mostly liberal, with pockets of trust-fund Republicans who mostly seem to emerge during discussions about diversity, so take that for what you will. In terms of sexual orientation, no one will care. Many students identify as something other than straight. There are lots of diversity-related groups on campus, which provide nice support systems for minority students.

I was a member of the Kenyon College swim team, one of the best among DIII schools with a fantastic legacy. Many of our friends were members of the basketball team, soccer team, tennis team, volleyball team, track and field team, you name it, and they were all equally driven, inspired and inspiring athletes. Our athletic facility is easily one of the best equipped and most beautiful college athletic facilities in the country and is frequently mentioned in Princeton reviews. With a wonderful program, coaches, teammates, and facility, Kenyon College provided a quality environment for us athletes. Faculty were very respectful of athletics and values these qualities in their students.

The alumni network is well connected and updated, and can be found throughout the world. Many Kenyon graduates move on to graduate school or are immediately employed, or move through alumni connections to find and/or join organizations or companies. Frequent talks and lectures are organized on campus (at least 2-3 a week) regarding career opportunities or information sessions of schools, programs, or global organizations. The professors have many many contacts up their sleeve as well. Much of the student body is works on campus or volunteers for the local community or school.
