    Kenyon is a very peaceful, quiet campus. I think Fall is by far the best season at Kenyon. So bright and colorful! read full review

    FIRST-YEAR SING It sounds hokey, but it's a great bonding experience. It's also an initiation into Kenyon vocabulary, where you discover words like Kokosing and asphodel. Read the lyrics to Kenyon's songs here. OPENING CONVOCATION This is your first official march down Middle Path, between rows of gown-clad professors. Four years later, you do it again at Commencement. THE MATRICULATION BOOK Future president Rutherford B. Hayes signed it. So did future novelist E.L. Doctorow and future film star Paul Newman. Every October, after the Founders' Day Convocation, the newly settled first-years page through this remarkable book, then add their own names. HONORS DAY In April, the whole Kenyon community gathers to celebrate academic achievement, community service, and leadership, with the awarding of departmental and College-wide prizes. A time to cheer for hard work and good works. FRIDAY CAFE Every week closes with this lunchtime gathering, open to all. Ingredients: friendly conversation, a mingling of faculty, students, and village residents, a gourmet entree, an exquisite dessert. SENIOR SOIREE A long-standing celebration of what has been and what is to come. Each year, the members of the Senior Class invite the faculty and administrators who have been such an important part of their time at Kenyon to a semi-formal reception marking 100 days until Commencement. Typically falling on the second Friday in February, the Soiree is a bright spot on the calendar during a dreary time of the year and the first of many celebrations for the Senior Class. SENIOR SING You haven't graduated until you've sung the songs again. Yes, the same ones you sang as a first-year student, four short years ago. Warning: Your parents will cry. You might, too. read full review
