Kenyon’s pre-orientation is an introduction to university life. Students get a taste of academics and meet future peers. As a follow up, Kenyon holds an orientation in the fall for all incoming freshman. During orientation, students move in to their new dorms, participate in team building activities, and get to know campus. There are plenty of advisors available to guide students during their transition.
Academic advising begins during orientation and continues throughout the entire undergraduate experience. Advisors assist and support students in their academic and personal endeavors. They can also facilitate decisions regarding career choice and post-graduate plans. As students move through college, their coursework becomes increasingly more difficult, and academic advisors are great for keeping student goals in check.
Kenyon believes that activity outside of the classroom is an integral part of a college experience. Students can join clubs, play sports, and take part in several different organizations. Involvement in co-curricular activities allows students to develop leadership and management skills.
