Kenyon College

Living and Learning in the Kenyon Community and the Surrounding Area

Excellence. Engagement. Community.This is what Kenyon values. There is a distinctive brand of community that is Kenyon's. We believe that individuals are not limited to who they are on paper, where they have been, or what they look like.

We believe that this place, Kenyon College, is a beautiful place in which one can build a beautiful life. And when someone's interests and strengths match the opportunities that this place has to offer, fulfillment happens.

Our faculty and staff have come here from all over the country-indeed, from all over the world, and from all kinds of backgrounds. They stay and live a life some never expected to live. Former urbanites raise sheep and practice carpentry when they are not engaged in academics. Faculty and staff walk their dogs around campus. For a change of pace, some will make the 50-minute drive to Columbus for some great dining, arts and cultural events, or shopping.

Kenyon is the kind of place where living the life of the mind matters. Discourse happens every day, and students, faculty, and staff have opportunities to learn to practice it with civility. It is the kind of place where people come together to support someone in a crisis large or small. It is collaborative more than competitive. If you want a place where individuals care deeply about learning and about one another, come here. If you want a change of pace, come here. If you strive for the best in yourself, professionally and personally, and want your students to do the same, come here.

Come be a part of Kenyon.

What's the area like?

Kenyon and the surrounding area are often remarked upon for their beauty. Very near campus is the Brown Family Environmental Center, where nature lovers will often attend free programs and events for kids and adults alike that include night hikes, bird-watching, or native plant and animal exploration. Through it runs the Kokosing Gap Trail, on which casual walkers and sports enthusiasts alike will hike, run, or bike the 14 miles (and growing!) of former rail line. The Rural Life Center explores and promotes the lifestyles present and past in Knox County , in which Kenyon is located. Knox County exemplifies Midwestern openness, and also an increasing diversity typical of the rest of the country.

Mt. Vernon, located 4 miles from Kenyon College, is the seat of Knox County. Mt. Vernon boasts both a public square surrounded by historic buildings, an active theater community, and a commercial district which includes a movie theater, retail stores, and restaurants.

Finally, there is Columbus, a vibrant city with diverse shopping, dining, and cultural opportunities. Its many neighborhoods, including notably the Short North, host a tremendous array of independently owned restaurants, varying from those with a heavy farm-to-fork emphasis to numerous international cuisines brought to the city by its multinational population, and much more. Columbus's cultural scene includes an outstanding symphony orchestraballet company, and several theater groups. Its historic theater buildings host the Broadway in Columbus seriesthroughout the year. Located throughout the city are also several major shopping areas, including Polaris and Easton. Columbus is, finally, home to three professional sports teams, and to the Ohio State Buckeyes, whose football and basketball teams especially enjoy loyal and very spirited fans at their games.  Located less than an hour away from Kenyon, Columbus is an attractive destination.

What if I have a spouse/partner?

Dual job searches are often a challenge. If there is no suitable position available at Kenyon for a spouse or partner, there are opportunities close by. Knox County is home to Mount Vernon Nazarene University, and several large employers who often have openings for healthcare workers, engineers, and other professionals: the Knox County Community Hospital , Rolls Royce , Kokosing Construction Company, and Ariel Corportation, to name a few. Many of these attract professionals from all over the country. Within an hour, there are also opportunities in neighboring cities and counties. Columbus is home to Nationwide Insurance, JPMorgan Chase & Company, and Abbott Nutrition, among other large employers. As the capital of Ohio, Columbus is also home to many state government positions

For academic spouses and partners, the Five Colleges of Ohio ("Ohio 5") often have postings at those institutions. The Columbus metro area is also home to The Ohio State University's flagship and regional campuses, as well as more than 40 other colleges and universities.

Will I find the things I need in the area?

Ethnic and International Grocery Stores

Diversity at Kenyon means actively engaging with difference—different kinds of people, different cultures, a multiplicity of ideas and opinions. We're a community that values tolerance and mutual respect, and this spirit of openness to others embraces race, gender, nationality, ethnicity, religion, and sexuality.

We put these beliefs into practice by welcoming students and faculty from throughout the country and the world—people of different races, socioeconomic backgrounds, and perspectives. The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion helps support a range of activities and student organizations, from ADELANTE (focusing on Hispanic culture), to the Black Student Union, to the Asian Awareness Club. These groups fill the calendar with performances, lectures, dinners, and festivals. Kenyon also has an active GLBT (gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender) community, which sponsors events as well as workshops and awareness-building sessions. The Board of Spiritual and Religious Life assists campus religious organizations, including several Christian groups, Hillel (the Jewish organization), and groups devoted to Eastern religious practices.

The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion strives to enhance the academic achievement and personal development of under-represented students. These students include, but are not limited to, those of varying racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds, sexual orientation, and religious affiliations. The office also seeks to foster an environment that is committed to and genuinely appreciative of multiculturalism and diversity. In addition, the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion serves as a resource center for students and members of the administration, faculty, and staff interested in ethnic and cultural books, videos, journals, and magazines.
