Kenyon in Quotes
“Robert A. Oden, Jr. Professor of Biology Joan Slonczewski taught me to think critically and gave me opportunities that snowballed into a lifetime of small achievements."
"Without ever saying anything overtly to our political science class, Professor Emerita of Political Science Pam Jensen somehow managed to encourage intellectual rigor outside the class, and respectful engagement with a wide range of ideas within it. She became a model for me of what a scholar, instructor, mentor and guide could, and should, be."
In honor of the 25th anniversary of coeducation, the Spring 1995 Alumni Bulletin explored the lives of Kenyon's women pioneers.
To mark the 40th anniversary of coeducation, the Fall 2013 Alumni Bulletin recalled how coeducation came about — from the fiscal crisis, to the clamor, to the uneven welcome on the Hill.
