Situated atop a hill overlooking the farms of mid-Ohio and featuring distinctive Gothic architecture, Kenyon College is a 4-year liberal arts college and the oldest private institution in the state. Kenyon offers undergraduate degrees in over 50 academic majors, minors, and concentrations and all students are required to complete a senior exercise known as “comps.” For students interested in the performing arts, Kenyon is home to the Bolton and Hill Theaters as well as the Kenyon College Chamber Singers, a choir that embarks on an annual spring break tour. For recreation, students take advantage of Kenyon’s location with walks along the neighboring Kokosing Gap Trail.

Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
(amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
+ amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
+ amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.
