Hello, everyone! My name is Amanda, and I will be attending Kenyon College next year. I fell in love with Kenyon very early on, and this love was reaffirmed when I visited the campus a few months ago. I remember feeling like I was walking in England!
I was somewhat skeptical about getting accepted at Kenyon, considering its reputation for being a selective college. I applied ED2 and received my acceptance letter about a month ago. Even then, I didn't want to get my hopes up, because there was no way I could pay for tuition without financial help! Very luckily, I received a considerable amount of financial aid.
I have no idea what to expect at Kenyon in terms of the courseload, but in the ideal situation, I would be double-majoring in Modern Languages and Literatures (studying German and Russian) and mathematics, with a minor in music.
A lot of my questions have already been answered in previous entries, but there is one burning question in my mind. Whenever I tell people that I will be attending Kenyon, a frequent reaction is, "Oh, you're probably going to have to get used to being around spoiled, rich kids." Now, inevitably, I'm sure there will be some students there who are very well-off. But do I need to be worried about this?
Someone told me that there are a lot of vegetarians on campus. (Though, frankly, I don't know what "a lot" is defined as.) Personally, I am not a vegetarian, but I'm just curious if there is any truth to this.
Thank you in advance for any information you could offer!
