I am considering Kenyon for ED1 or ED2, but I’ve got tunnel vision for it and I’m not sure if another college would be better. I’m a Hispanic, low income student from NYC. Also part of LGBT community.
Academics - I’ve loved pure math since I was young, but eventually experienced major burnout. Gravitating towards science with interest in environmental bio. Have had fun doing research in labs and field especially. Veeerry interested in political science, and economics. Considering a major in economics. Writing - I have some trouble getting thoughts on paper and writing isn’t my forte, but I’d definitely appreciate the opportunity to improve.
Interests - I’m not quite artsy like Kenyon kids but I enjoy music and theatre as entertainment. I like wrestling, swing dancing, rollerblading. I love nature, being outdoors, hiking. I like to get my hands dirty with outdoorsy stuff – Kenyon’s farm is something I like.
I’m interested in a small LAC, I think. I stayed at Bard College for a few weeks and absolutely loved the campus – being able to step into the woods, experiencing such a different setting, etc. I’d wanna go to a college with a welcoming and homey type of feel, where it might be easy to make strong connections with people. Gonna be honest, I currently have that romanticized view of the college experience – a beautiful campus, lifelong friends, etc.
