Just a little Kenyon love

My idyllic little college got a lot of love from a pretty famous alum a few days ago and I thought I’d share it with you. John Green is the latest in a long line of creative Kenyon folks: Robert Lowell, Laura Hillenbrand, James Wright, Caleb Carr, E. L. Doctorow, Alison Janney, Paul Newman, Josh Radnor, Rutherford B. Hayes, Jim Borgman, and Bill Watterson, to name a few. Though the list itself is awe-inspiring, it’s even more shocking once you realize that Kenyon graduates a mere 450 students every spring.

Green says it best: “In short I know that nostalgia is in the business of twisting memories into lies and that there are lots of great colleges and universities but let’s face it: Kenyon is the best one.”
