Drug Safety: Many students do choose to drink, but I have not encountered any peer pressure at Kenyon. There are definitely students who choose not to drink, and they still seem to have fun/feel comfortable socializing without drinking.

Campus Quality: Our school is absolutely beautiful. The architecture is awesome. Kenyon has a bunch of traditions that bring the student body together. There are lots of campus activities to participate in.

5 College Junior

Campus Quality: It's super small so the community is really small and tight-knit. Professors are exceptionally accessible and get to know students really well. Kenyon has a lot of history and traditions that make it feel like a really special place. Students are very intelligent without being overly competitive and cut-throat. Also, it's beautiful and it looks like Hogwarts.

Scholarships: The financial aid office is super accessible and helpful!

3 College Junior

Party Scene: There are fun all parties thrown by greek organizations and other clubs. There are only two bars in town. Nightlife can get a little repetitive.

Campus Food: There is lots of variety, an awesome local foods program, and our head chef takes and responds to requests/suggestions/complaints via Facebook. There's only one dining hall, but that means it's a good place to find anyone you might be looking for!

Academics: The political science department is absolutely wonderful!!

Academics: Professors are super accessible and dedicated. Academics are challenging but the workload is manageable. There is lots of support for the registration process.

Athletics: The athletic center is state of the art and absolutely beautiful. Varsity athletics aren't a huge deal on campus, but people definitely turn up to support their friends, and everyone is proud of the champion swimmers!

5 College Junior

Technology: Free printing, very accessible technical support, lots of computer labs!

4 College Junior

Diversity: On the surface, it might look like a very homogenous campus. But once you get to know people, there are students from very different backgrounds with a lot of different beliefs. We could definitely stand to increase out racial diversity, though.

3 College Junior

Weather: Winters can be long, snowy and cold, and spring can be rainy. But you get a little bit of all four seasons, and each season is really beautiful in Gambier!

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food isn't too bad, however, the fruit availability is.

Local Area: A rural atmosphere -- removed from the distractions of city life - has lent itself to a great academic learning environment since 1824. I wouldn't chance anything!

Campus Housing: My rankings put it at excellent -- hard to comment on that any further! But, I will say that the rooms are indeed spacious well heated/ cooled, comfortable, and my roommates aren't too bad either!

Campus Food: Kenyon's food is great compared to my high school's food. There are plenty of options, although if you're on a strict diet you may have some trouble. The chefs love interacting with students, so that is always a plus.

I love both dining halls. In one hall you can easily feel like you're in one of the Harry Potter movies and the other dining hall is just newer. Lot's of people simply refer to the two main halls as "new side" and "old side."

Overall, our dining hall, Peirce, is great. It's hard to find a person who says they don't like it.

5 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Financial aid at Kenyon is great. Of course the process of filling out the FAFSA and CSS Profile is a hassle, but it's worth it because Kenyon is dedicated to giving students their demonstrated financial need. Financial aid was a major factor when choosing schools and I couldn't have really picked a better school.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Kenyon College is a small school in rural Ohio. Located in the middle of cornfields, "remote" doesn't even begin to describe its location. Gambier consists of one block with a convenience store, bookstore, and two restaurants; the nearest Walmart is 15 minutes away by bus, and the local movie theater has only two screens. For all of its location flaws, the College has a certain charm. Kenyon wasn't named the "most beautiful college campus in the world" for nothing. Those who step onto the campus are immediately awed by the Gothic architecture, landscaped lawns, and inviting atmosphere.

Part of Kenyon's charm is that it attracts students who really want to be there, rather than those who want the location or name. Students bond over the remote location as much as they do over living in the dorms for four years or dining in the only dining hall on campus. This leads to a cohesive student body that's willing to shape the College it attends. Student groups on campus are very active in the life of the College, and many decisions are put to an all-campus vote.
