You might not expect to find such a wide array of arts and culture offerings in an off-the-beaten-path setting like Gambier, Ohio. But make no mistake: the world comes to our campus via an abundance of world-class lectures, film screenings, concerts, art exhibits, and other cultural activities throughout the year. And Kenyon students are more than a captive audience—they serve as engaged and active participants in the planning and execution of many of our spirited events.
