    Thanks, chochu! Yeah, our Model UN conference is in a little less than two weeks, so it's pretty crazy around here. We're representing three countries this year - Panama, Senegal, and THE UNITED KINGDOM. It's so much fun to be a "Big Five"! And a lot of work.

    So what kind of theater are you interested in? I grew up doing musical theater, but I'm OBSESSED with Shakespeare.

    Oh! And I forgot to say... (this is ridiculous - three posts in a row? I never do this.) I am VERY interested in attending Kenyon! Everything I've heard about it is great. I'm slightly concerned about whether I could survive in Gambier, though. I haven't visited yet. I mean, if I can stand it, I'll ADORE it, but I'm still not sure I would physically be able to survive...

    franklinbrown,
    I am not really into any specific sort of theater, I just love to act.
    I have heard disturbing things as well about Gambier but have no choice coz I got in ED. I even heard that there is no transportation and you need to hire a shuttle beforehand to get out of Kenyon!!!
    When I was in high school, my school represented Nepal, US and Pakistan. I led Pakistan and had a lot of fun. I was granted audience by the ambassador of pakistan to nepal as well. this event changed my aim and i now wish to work for the UN (hopefully in the top spot, hehe)

    There are a lot of rumors about Kenyon. I live right next to Gamibier in Mount Vernon. It's true there is no public transportation like buses or taxis. We have a "taxi like" service inKnox county but it's crap, only use it if you absolutely HAVE to!!

    As for the rumors, I think they're just that, rumors.
  • chochu444chochu444 Registered User Posts: 323 Member
    brokenchild, so how r u supposed to get out of kenyon if you dont have a car? I am an international student and cant afford one.
  • yeahmehyeahmeh Registered User Posts: 142 Junior Member
    I heard that the shuttle service is very good and takes u to Mount Vernon pretty much all the time and there is also a shuttle that goes twice a month to Columbus. What's more students give their car to disposition writing it on a web site and it's not that expensive to get a ride that way so i believe we shouldn't worry about this!
  • brokenchildbrokenchild Registered User Posts: 74 Junior Member
    chochu444:

    You can take the taxi service Knox county has. And if Kenyon ahs their own shuttle (not too sure but probably fromwhat everyone else says) things will be fine. Don't worry about it. Gambier is a small town and almost everything you need is right there.
  • chochu444chochu444 Registered User Posts: 323 Member
    thanks loads guys for the reassurance.

    I just got my acceptance letter in the mail today. It was a very nice surprise to come home from prom dress shopping and it.

    They were VERY generous with financial aid!! I'm almost getting a free ride. That made is excited as well.

    Still not sure I'm going to Kenyon. I'm waiting on letters from four other colleges still.

    A little about me:

    I live in Ohio (right next to Gambier) and plan to major is psychology. I've been involved with dance, baton, band, NHS, Spanish Club, FCCLA, Quiz Bowl, and Yearbook throughout high school.

    I would like to try some sports in college, maybe track or volleyball.
