Kenyon’s beautiful campus is located in Gambier, Ohio, approximately 45 minutes from Columbus, the state’s capital. The rural setting, surrounded by cornfields, is home to approximately 1,600 students. Kenyon is a private, liberal arts college founded in 1824. The campus spills into the small, quaint downtown and the historic town of Mount Vernon is a 10-minute car ride; also a good base for a visit.
Coffee and Breakfast: You might overhear students telling each other to meet at the "wiggle and the ground", the official slang for Wiggin Street Coffee; it’s the place at Kenyon where everyone meets up with friends or professors for a cup of coffee and a light bite.
Local Attractions: Gambier is a small town and there’s not that much to do after seeing the school. You can rent a bike at the bookstore and go for a ride on the Kokosing Gap Trail, a 14- mile recreational trail built on an old Pennsylvania Railroad line. Or visit the impressive Brown Family Environmental Center, a 382-acre nature preserve right on campus. Trails are open during the day for walking and hiking, be sure to visit the wildlife garden.
