Kenyon College Description:

Located in the village of Gambier in rural Ohio, Kenyon College is one of the top-ranked liberal arts colleges in the country. It also has the distinction of being the oldest private college in Ohio. Kenyon prides itself on the strength of its faculty, and with a 10 to 1 student / faculty ratio and average class size of 15, undergraduates will have lots of interaction with their professors. The attractive campus with its gothic architecture features a 380-acre nature preserve. For its strengths in the liberal arts and sciences, Kenyon was awarded a chapter of the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. The college's many strengths earned it a place on my lists of Top Ohio Colleges and Top Midwest Colleges.
