Once again, Kenyon has been recognized for going above and beyond the peons of the collegiate system by being the best at something. This time, it’s for studying. Kenyon ranks the highest for study time among college seniors, according to the Washington Post. The explanation the article gives is that we apparently have small classes and give senior exercises. Quoted in the article is Provost Nayef Samhat:
“When you have nothing but small classes from the beginning to the end of your career, and you need to participate, there is an expectation that you will be prepared.”
I think we should all raise our afternoon beers and salute our unemployed selves for yet again getting a national shout-out. I’m a total rankings lover and am giddy at the fact that we are (again) quantifiably awesome. Not only do we have the best campus (irrefutably) and the best professors (also irrefutably), but now we are also the best at the menial task of studying. Good work, Kenyon!
