Kenyon Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Kenyon College is a private liberal arts college in Gambier, Ohio. It was founded in 1824 by Philander Chase. Kenyon College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. Kenyon has 1,708 undergraduates enrolled. Its 1,000-acre campus is set in a rural setting and uses a semester-based academic calendar. The campus is home to the Brown Family Environmental Center (BFEC), which has over 380 acres.
A former student shares his disappointing experience on niche.com, "Kenyon is a SCAM. The "college" is not an institution of learning, it is a radical socialist re-education camp. Dissenters are severely punished, while hateful ideologies are elevated. Kenyon sanctimoniously claims to be "progressive" and "liberal" while being the exact opposite. Instead, it is regressive and authoritarian. Kenyon has a terrible ROI - students leave with no skills that will lead to career success. It was recently ranked 983rd as the best-value college by PayScale, which tracks the average ROI of an education. If you love your child, do not put them in harm's way to be a target of bigotry. The post-modern, hateful ideologies that Kenyon indoctrinates their "students" will only cripple them in the real world. On the other hand, if you want your child to be a radical social activist that will continue to leach off others and live in your basement, then this is definitely the college for them. Attending Kenyon is the equivalent of burning 300k cash in your fireplace."
