Again, I wonder if it's because Kenyon and Oberlin are more liberal than the average Ohio family.
I also get the sense from friends who went to these schools that many people end up moving out of Ohio after graduation. For example, you are probably more likely to run into a fellow Oberlin or Kenton grad in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn than you are in Columbus.
The question remains about Denison. Wondering where it fits in the mix and what kind of kids go there. Kids who like Oberlin's offerings but not its politics? Kids who couldn't get into Oberlin? Kids who like a more Midwestern type feeling at their school? Or like the Greek system?
On a bit of a related note, I heard a story about how a prospective student was asked by an Oberlin tour guide which pronoun he uses to describe himself. I mentioned that to S19 and he said that is a thing now...but he's not really interested to be in a place where that's one of the first things people ask.
