What Students Are Saying

3.14 Average Rating
Applying early decision is a great idea. Do not be intimidated by the course material and don't be afraid to go to the professor's office hours. The professor's are really friendly and willing to help.
Ryan from St. Louis, MO
Know the Location: Visit campus, it was rated one of America's most beautiful colleges. It's an incredible place. Take a campus tour, get a feel for Kenyon's vibe and see if it's right for you.

Talk to current students and faculty - go sit in on a class, talk to the professors and students about your interests and what they like and dislike about the school.

Keep your ACT scores high. Take as many AP classes as your school offers. If you do take classes at a community college to earn credit, they will not transfer. I made this mistake and wasted two years on college classes only to have them not transfer. This school is small and rural but busy and full of community. Be prepared to be away from the big city life.
