Now that you can go outside for more than five minutes at a time, Kenyon’s campus can really lend itself to some fun activities! In this post, we’ll explore some of the possibilities.

Do It Today: Activities Fair

Ask any upperclassmen what they do for fun at Kenyon, and invariably they will mention at least one club or organization that they love being a part of. Despite its size, Kenyon has no lack of activities for students partake in, and the Activities Fair is a perfect opportunity for all students, especially first-years, to discover an organization they are interested in. First-years will sign up for as many clubs as possible and never attend half of the meetings, but that’s to be expected. You wouldn’t be at Kenyon if you didn’t have diverse interests.

Even if you think you don’t want to join an organization, take some time to stop by, because there will be plenty of free candy. Everyone likes free candy.

What: Activities Fair

Where: Ransom Lawn (Rainsite: Peirce Hall)

When: 11 a.m.- 1 p.m.
