Kenyon College

Kenyon College is a private liberal arts institution with 184-year reputation for teaching students to think critically, to question the world and their place in it, and to communicate with clarity and conviction. Kenyon’s strong academic program annually sends a large percentage of its graduates to the nation’s leading graduate and professional schools. 

Kenyon is situated in the central Ohio village of Gambier, population 2,000. Many members of the faculty and administration reside in the picturesque village, forming a unique community of learning. Gambier is five miles east of Mount Vernon, 50 miles north of Columbus and 100 miles south of Cleveland.

Founded in 1824 by Episcopal Bishop Philander Chase, Kenyon is one of the oldest private colleges west of the Allegheny mountains. In the 1800s, Kenyon educated many of the nation’s leaders, including President Rutherford B. Hayes and Lincoln cabinet member Edwin M. Stanton. Twentieth-century graduates include the late Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme, actor Paul Newman, poet Robert Lowell, author E.L. Doctorow, and many leaders in science, medicine, law, literature and business. The Kenyon Review, founded in 1939 by poet and critic John Crowe Ransom, is now edited by Kenyon’s English department faculty and enjoys world-wide literary prominence.

Kenyon became a coeducational institution in 1969. Enrollment is approximately 1,600.
