Academically, Kenyon is a great school. The professors are incredible and engaging, the classes are so gripping, and I feel that I've learned so much. However, the community is difficult. First, the school is so small and isolated that the social scene is incredibly limited, which causes problems if you don't perfectly click with a group. People tend to be really cliquey here and it's hard to break into other groups, especially if you don't want to go out partying and drinking every weekend as that is the main mode of socialization here. And the people have a very pretentious vibe in general (with notable exceptions, of course). Overall, it's a great school, but the community is hard to vibe with if you're not stereotypically "Kenyon".
